Hi, Y'all
I'm a new guy from the Appalachian (sp?) foothills, and w/be looking for some help. I've just come into possession of a T/C Hawken rifle (Cal .54) and know zilch abt it. In the next few days, I'll be testing that old adage that there's no such thing as a dumb question, so bear with me. More later...:p

Welcome to The Hunter's Life. I just recently got a CVA Bobcat .50 cal Percussion, and at least one or two others that visit also just started shooting black powder, so you aren't alone. You sure picked a nice rifle to start with.

Welcome aboard.

The only dumb question is the one that did not age addressed and let the gun blow up in your face. Since I am a moderator here some seem to think I am an expert. What I am is a shooter and trying to answer and/or help with questions has made me a student with a heck of a lerning curve in front of me. We will learn together.

Bet my last cap you have seen some things I have not and maybe I can give a hint ot two that will help.

Hey Redneck!!!! Sounds to me like we both come from the same part of the country sorta.:D

I'm more from the Smokey Mountain range but we aren't too far astray from one another.

My son works for the railroad and he was in your neck of the woods for a year. I'm trying to come up with the name of the town but it's not coming. :D :D I think I'm having a "senior moment"...LOL!!!

Re: Hi, Y'all
Thanks for the warm welcome, all. I do appreciate it.
Dragonfly: I'm in northern Alabama, close to Lake Guntersville.

As I said before, I'm going to need some help/guidance w/this smokepole I've acquired. I'm still trying to figure out just what all it is that I don't know, and will post some questions over in the BP/ML forum soon.

I've been shooting cap & ball revolvers for a while, but this Hawken is a a new critter for me...:confused:

Re: Hi, Y'all
Hah, he's from my neck of the woods, not yours Draggy. I got tons of family in and around Cullman, mostly in places whose names you wont find on a map. My homes in Alabama, at least figuritively, for now. I learned to water ski on Lake Guntersville.

Welcome to the forum. If you can figure out the questions, I'm sure someone here will try and get you some answers. It's a pretty friendly group, so settle in and enjoy yourself.

Welcome to the "Fam" Redneck! I'm sure any questions you have about muzzle-stuffers can be answered by some of our folks here. I'm doing the metalic cartrige thing, but I've always been interested in muzzle loaders.
All the best,
