Look what I got today!

Today I got my .45 percussion Hawken Woodsman from Dikar. I bought it in used condition. The barrel is a bit rusty inside and the blueing a bit flat, but all in all a nice handy rifle for bad weather to hunt for roedeer and red fox.

Here it is:

Good Deal! Thumbs up
I finally hung my Hawkens on the wall today. I hung a framed colored print of a hunt scene below it with the hunter dropping his muzzleloader and drawing his knife on a bear. (That was my wife's idea. She's got good taste).

Hello!

Tested a bit around with the little baby and expected that I had to do some sighting in. So I hang up a paper target at 40 yds and made 2 shots with .440 PRB, lubed 0,25mm patch, 90 grs WANO PP, spittled wad. And to my surprise the 2 shots i made were center and nearly hole in hole. So I stop the sighting and went hunting at once. Frm my ground blind I saw a badger, but he crossed to fast, so no shooting possible. When going back to the car I saw a roe doe on the trail. Now it was do dark for open sight.

But I had fun!

Regards

Kirrmeister
