    I recently started a discussion on Reddit (I have since cancelled my registration!) regarding the lack of support shown to muzzle-loader owners by the rest of the firearms community. As an example I mentioned that I had started a petition to have reproduction flintlock, wheellock & matchlock...

    What Are Your Personal Defence Weapons/tools

    What are your personal defence weapons? This is NOT what you would like to have or prefer to have, this means what have you got right now put by for a TEOTWAWKI should it ever happen. I have been giving some thought as to what we could be up against. Most of the guns out there are probably in...

    Flintlock Muzzle-loading Guns, Rifles & Pistols.

    This post is in response to earlier requests for more information on firearms. I do NOT consider my guns to be weapons, I think of them as tools, but of course they can be used for defence as well as hunting & in the case of a flintlock, the lock can be used to make fire. My .32 caliber...

    Some Of My Weapons/tools.

    I prefer to refer to my guns & blades as tools rather than weapons, but of course they serve equally well for defence as they do for hunting. I prefer 18th century equipment because it is robust, practicle & sustainable. I do own modern firearms, but for long term survival I depend on my 18th...
