Can you provide a picture of the patent breech?  Perhaps then we can advise you better.

The only option is for all of us to stand up as one strong voice and tell our legislators we won't stand for this and to those who oppose us: VOTE THEIR ASSES OUT OF OFFICE! I know of what I speak as I live in the once great state of Oregon, that unfortunately is slipping into Socialism. Gather the true scientific data and wave it high for all to see or the only lead round ball shooting you are going to do is on private property.

Accoutrements / Leaf Decoration on Powder Horn
« Last post by Mick C on Today at 06:24:33 PM »
Hey guys,
I have a question for the amazing horners that often post to the forum.  In a recent Contemporary Makers Blog post, a beautiful bag and horn set was featured:  http://contemporarymakers.blogspot.com/2019/07/ken-scott-hunting-pouch-with-john.html .  The bag is by Ken Scott and the horn is by John Barrett.

My question concerns the leaf decoration on the horn.  How might that type of decoration be done?  Is it a stain, a paint?  Is it brushed on following outlining onto the horn?  Is it stenciled?  Any direction would be greatly appreciated as I have a very plain horn on which I would perhaps like try something.  I'm sure my efforts wouldn't look anything like John's but it might improve my horn a bit.

Thanks!  Mick

Items for Sale/Wanted / Re: WTB.....fire starter leather bag
« Last post by G. Elsenbeck on Today at 06:15:18 PM »
Here is my personal version in the form of a belt pouch for a fire starter and/or sharpening stone.  Measuring 6 1/2 by 5 inches high (includes fringe) made from some barktan deer with a bone button for closure.  The belt loops on the back were veg tanned cowhide.  the little pouch is lined that includes a divider (also serves as the fringe on the outside and has a small gusset to increase some capacity without sacrificing size.  Comfortable on the belt or can be included in a larger double bag w/out searching for loose items.

A lock on the side of the barrel. Not an underhammer. Not an in-line. Not a box lock pistol with the cock on top.

I google side lock and get pictures of regular precussion cap rifle. Is it mule ear?

To address the carrying one ball, and using another, the CDFW in good old California have a test that tells them if the wound was made by a lead projectile. Also as far as I can tell, casting your own lead free projectile here isnít an option.
