He's alive and well at Gunslingers Gulch. I don't go there much anymore.
Right. But as mentioned, I just wish I was on them lists to begin with...instead of going through the "process". Or gauntlet, or whatever it is.
I stayed in oklahoma City and in the Cherokee reservation in Oklahoma for a few months.
It's definitely different then being here in the Smokey mountains/ blue ridge mountains of NC.
Oklahoma is a beautiful place and I wouldn't mind living there. So long as I had some land and a storm shelter
No need to apologize.
edit, regular Goex that is. Olde Eynsford is probably my favorite but I'm afraid we'll never see that again. Swiss is the only one that compares to Olde Eynsford.
I used to buy Goex for $5.95/lb. at Dixon's Muzzleloading Shop in the early 1990s.
I used to shoot Old E before switching to Swiss. Word I have is the Goex brand will be back for domestic use in all grades about mid March 2023. They are currently filling gov contracts at the moment.
Got any left? I'll give you $6.95 for it!!!
Boy, did this ever bring back memories! My first pound of "store bought" powder was back in 1963 or 1964. Needed a note from my mother since I was a young adolescent at the time. The owner of the local gun shop sold me a pound of DuPont 2fg for the grand sum of $2.50, plus tax. He told me the next time I needed powder to bring back the empty can (along with another note) and he would refill it for $2.00, which he did using a 4-ounce volumetric measure to scoop the powder from what appeared to me a HUGE DuPont keg. Can't remember how many times I had that can refilled but I wish I had saved it... .
