PJM, it will sit in your outbox folder until he opens it; then it will be moved to the sent folder.

PJM,

Just answered your PM a couple of minutes ago. Not much time spent on the forum today, so just now checking things out. Plus when you're working with BP muzzleloading, things go a lot slower, don't they :?: :lol: :?:

My Browning Mountain rifle during deer season.
If you look hard you might even see it.
I call it Bull Thrower, just like Ole Hugh Glass the Mountain Man called his rifle.
Not the recent movie that tried to depict him. Sorry, I'm rambling.

Thanks, yeah it's a
50 cal. Shoots straight. Browning got into the Black Powder business with a nice rifle, and Browning quality, when there were all kinds of rifles for under $200 at the time. They pretty much blew it. They didn't make them for very long. Its pretty much period correct as can be. Inch across the flats, it gets heavy on a hunt.
