Anyone know anything about this builder? The seller says " Leroy Fleemon". Looks more like "Leroy Fleenor" to me. It's on a neatly done Hawken style rifle.

I ain't watching it unless there's fancy tools involved.

Does anyone have any knowledge about a gunmaking class where you build from a blank or of a gunmaker in NC that would be willing to teach a friend and myself the ropes.

Where are you located?

I will post more photos of the Hawken tomorrow. I picked up the rifle last week but immediately left for the KRA show. I will be back at the shop in the morning.

It's only 25 yards, and my 20 bore loves that load.  I've been tempted to put a rear sight on it just to see the difference. Maybe super glue one on .  Honestly, I can't do as well with the 10 bore, although it's very good.  I happened on that load for the 20 early on, and although I've tried others, nothing shoots as well. Patched round balls come close, but still not as good.   :)

Thank you Bob Hill and Nordecker, My connection to that area is just that I used to deer hunt in Cecil County (Maryland) on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake. I loved that place. The name 'MarySee' is derived from my two kids' names, Mary and Christian. The "See" is Christians first initial = "MarySee".
Not sure what that island was, I copied the map from an old, old woodcut map (1740's or so I think). It isn't identified but looks to be part of Elizabeth County.

Yeah, uhhh no.  There are a lot of map makers that try to saddle us with Cecil County, but nobody actually from the Shore counts Cecil.  Once you cross the C&D Canal you may as well be in B'more.   8)
