New to the site , but not new to firearms.
Some of y'all may know me from NorthWest Firearms....so like that bad penny , here I am , all turned up...:D
Anyhow..
Hello my name is Andy ...And I like guns...
Just about any kind of firearm is of interest...but I really enjoy traditional style and antique muzzleloading firearms.
I hope to add what I can to this forum and look forward to hearing from y'all.

My favorite muzzle-loader is a friend's homemade copy of a 1917 Hotchkiss Howitzer. Weighs 1,500 pounds and kicks 40mm 1-pound ball out at 2600 FPS smoothbore.

600 gr of 680 powder does the trick.

It looks a lot like this, but with a lot shorter barrel.
