Thanks Drydock. I didn't remember if we lumped all civilian firearms together in their class without regards for the powder they were using or not.

Our targets move around enough as it is.

The trick is to pull the trigger as the target wobbles by in front of the sights.

Well, I figure that if the front sight is moving back and forth and the target is moving back and forth too the target should be easier to hit, right?  ::) ::)

I'm in the process of developing a new form that may kill anyone who goes for more, it is that good. :o

Yummy!
The heck with registration forms, when is Del gonna publish the 'official' GAF Muster cookbook? I can't help but think it'll be a best seller overnight for any Mil-history buff and his Cookie!
Best regards and good eating!

P.S. Del we have made something similar to your apple, sour cream and raisins but with handpicked wild rhubarb, double yummy, it'll make any Dutch Oven smile!

Don't like hearing that, Dave. Let's hope things get better. You and Penny will surely be missed.

Dave:  I don't like hearing that, either!   You two take care, please!

I was hoping there would be a veritable British Empire "contingent" numbering as many as four at this Muster, with you and I as the "old campaigners", plus Ned and his new Australian mounted infantry impressions, and Garry James as a British officer .....

Wow...has it really been 10 years.  I remember when I put the first one together.  I thought it would largely be a "one -off" but then did it the 2nd year too and made it better.  I am so glad to see my baby growing up....Thank you Jerry for running with it and I REALLY wish I could make it this year, but alas, I am still campaigning in Afghanistan.  I will be home in the fall.

I wish you could too Richard! I think you'd really enjoy some of the things we're going to be doing this summer.

Two more paydays before the Muster. Planning on sending registration out with Friday the 6th dispatches.

Edit:
Or maybe a couple of days before, so as to arrive there about the same time payday arrives.......
