Recently did Gun Safe(s) clean out/reorganize.
I found I had my dad's CVA Trapper's combo I have to try.
Not a flinter but it's something new to try in the world of blowing smoke!. I'll start with the 12 ga barrel of the set. See what pattern I get for spring turkey.

Hope you can get a gobbler with it JW.

No update. Doing a little crossbow hunting still. And working around the home place as always.

Did pick up a few items Clem said I'd need. Think I've got a pretty good kit together now and can tear down the whole thing with what I have in my bag if need be

Looks good but open that frizzen and lower the hammer all the way. You don't want to keep pressure on the spring at half cock.
