This is my Tulle, a 20ga Fusil de chase by CenterMark. The powder horn with the rawhide repair was made by Mike Miller, shooting bag from Larry Callahan.

WOW:   You darn sure some have some ((( Breath Taking Treasures ))). I don`t think I have ever seen any collection, of your quality level. I am a New Guy here and just trying to get started in BP Shooting Game. I have a Lyman 54CAL Percussion Great Plains Rifle, that was given to me by my best ever shooting partner. He is in real bad health now and in reality, He is dieing. Dam I just hate to admitt that, and He said He wanted me to have his favorite BP Rifle. He did some, to me butatifull Sliver Enlay work on the stock in several places. Not in the quality level as yours. But His rifle will always be very special to me, and I am very proud to take it to the range and shoot it. This Rifle is my BP Treasure, and always will be. I will pass it on to my Son when I am gone. I am sorry if I got long winded, and I hope I didn`t bore any of you on my first post.

no kidding, breath taking treasures is again, an understatement LOL.

Cpt-t, Welcome to the forum as well! I see that you are new here. I am also sorry to hear about your buddy being in poor health. Keep that rifle in top shape and honor him by putting it to use and making memories that will last a life time.

Cpt-t you've got a good'n there with that .54 Plains rifle.  :rtup  That was my first real good muzzleloader.  It's took a bunch of deer and I still have it. This is me back in the 70's on an Elk hunt in Montana with that rifle.



Here's a better picture of it.

A couple of different items in this picture is the Spanish Trade knife by C.L. Matteo and the copy of Danial Boone's brother Squire Boone's tomahawk also by C.L Matteo. He copied it from the original which is in the museum.



This is the original. C.L. photographed and measured it before he made my copy

I think the word "treasures" aptly describes them all.

"What's your favorite load for that 20ga. Fowler?  I just got meself one!!"

I've got two 20's and I usually like 80 sometimes 90gr's of 2ff behind a 595 patched ball. If I'm usin shot I load 10gr's more shot than powder. I load the same in my 12ga flinter.

80gr's of 2ff is plenty, These two deer were taken with one shot from my 20ga with 80gr's. The ball went through the 1st deer and almost through the 2nd one. Ball was recovered just under the hide on the off side. It earned the gun the name of "Ole Two-fer"

Didn't you know these ol' flintlocks can't  kill deer!  You gotta have one of those "space guns" to do that.

Thankee kindly :Grace  When a man gets my age he enjoys his comforts.



WE WAS MOUNTAINMEN..by Ron LaClair

I remember when, we was Mountainmen
seems like it weren't long ago
We was bullhide tough an we played real rough
there wern't a man that we couldn't throw

When we put sights on a deer our eyes was clear
an that critter was soon on a pole
We Mountainmen...who'd a thought back then
that we would ever grow old

We shoot smoothbores now, can't see rear sights
but the front blade is still fairly clear
We load them smoothies with a big round ball
an still manage to kill us some deer

We still rendezvous an we still count coup
but it ain't like it use ta be
Our joints is worn an it's hard ta run
when ya got a titanium knee

Then there's them pipes, ya just never know
if they're in the shape they should be
So the Doc he says, "Son I think it's time
ya had a colonoscopy"

Can't sleep no more on the cold hard ground
since we got that new plastic hip
use ta drink a whole jug round the fire at night
now it's just a few little sips

The day will come...not far down the road
when they'll wanna put us in a home
They'll say we're too old ta be out in the cold
to old ta hunt on our own

When they come ta take me to that old folks home
on some cold dark rainy night
They'll sure be surprised when this ole coon says,
"BOYS, THAT'LL BE AFTER THE FIGHT!"....WAUGH!

But if THEY win an I'm put in
To that fearsome, lonely place
To swaller pills cause I got the chills
'Mongst wrinkles on my face,

Then remember me, Y'all that's still free,
And hold to the mountain creed,
To never rest, but fight yer best,
Till the ol' coon is finely freed!

It will be a cold day in hell before they'll take me to an old folks home.

I'll die in my mountains first.
