It's been awhile since my last post. I've been struggling for sometime now as some of you might have heard but it doesn't mean I'm down.
There is a small glimmer of hope on the horizon and it's promising so far. So the future? What is in the future? Well medically unfortunately I see a lot of medications and shots. I've been played a crappy deal but I'm gonna do my best to not totally ruin things. It has slowed me down considerably though which brings me to my next statement.
I'm giving up deer hunting! First I had to sell the one and only gun I had for hunting and second, I physically just can't make it around the woods anymore. I did not come to this decision lightly, I've had a lot of sleepless nights thinking about it.
Deer hunting has been my life my passion my inspiration for the past 20+ years. I still will post about the whitetail deer just maybe not so much. As you know I have another interest which is shooting cap and ball revolvers of the 1800's. I really like that time period.
So as I mend my finances and make changes to blog content I honestly hope that you all who follow my blog keep doing so.

Let me start by saying my great great grandfather was actually from Vermont but at the time there was no place in Bermont to enlist so he rode over to New Hampshire to enlist.

Success at last, when I replaced the nipples in my ASM 1858 Remington New Model Army I had one that just would not budge. It was frozen for sure but this morning I wanted to try and free it so I could have all six new instead of just five.
Finally got it to pop free.
