Default Introduction to black powder

This was my introduction to black powder and what led me into muzzleloader hunting. It's been sitting around rusting for 20 some years and I thought I would try to clean it up a little. The bore doesn't look too bad.

Don't let anyone tell you Evapo Rust isn't a good product.

I saw one of these sell on that TV show Pawn Stars. they took it out and shot it to make sure it worked. I wanted a slightly larger version positioned near my front door at home.

I always thought it would be fun to get a tennis/golf ball mortar. The vids I see on YouTube...they look like they are a lot of fun to shoot.
