Wanted to say Hi and nice site. I may read around somewhat more before I have lots to say.

More or less I have been shooting flinters since 76, and cap locks since 72.

What I am not any good at this heya' computer box thang, and so it will take some gettin' used to before I can fill out my profile, but don't let that stop you girls from tryin' ta' git a date wid me! :mrgreen:

Just remember I changed my name to protect the innocent! Mac

Welcome to the Rag. Heck of a good picture you have there. When and where was that taken? If you don't mind sharing?

That pic is a tad dated at this point, and i can't recall the year to be honest, after 98 and before 01 is my best guess. The location is near Upper Canada Village in Canada. It was taken and then given to me by a still photographer while we both, and plenty more folks were making a 1812 flick. I was simply an extra.

I made everything I have on, less the Bess. That is circa 1976 made in Japan. The paint is one of my designs based on what i think I know, and is made of iron oxide and bear grease.
