Yesterday I got my newly acquired 12 bore blackpowder shotgun, the one I showed recently. A nice piece, besides the makeshift mending, and the hammers lock up firmly. I really like this one; it's the shotgun I always wanted from when I was an egg biggrin.gif

I also zeroed in the scope on my .30-06 so now it hits perfectly for the distance I usually hunt at. Used nine rounds in total.

I know I said I zeroed in my gun but man, I still had adjustments to make.


Day off today so I decided to put my rifle in a jig I made so I could really drive it home. First shot revealed I was off high and to the left. Might as well have been shooting one of my blackpowder revolvers. Managed to get it lowered, then righted and I was home. Three rounds in the center of the target and all touching each other by half. Can't do much better than that!

How do you change that? I remember having a little 22 revolver that used to throw way high and right; I never knew you could fix something like that! (don't have it anymore).

Well Congrats for getting it fixed, that is awesome!

Scope has two nobs you can turn in order to line it up with where the bullet hits. Quite simple. It's a little trickier wiht iron sights if you don't know how to adjust them, but not hard to learn.

Shooting result

The numbers show in what order I fired. I know the 4 looks like only two rounds but I did fire thrice.

And this is my newly decked out rifle

The cartridge holder is brand new and I absolutely love it!

I thought the sight was built on; didn't know it could be moved or adjusted!!! Awesome!!!

Thanks, squirrel!


Yeah, that cartridge holder is great! I also got another holster for my newest revolver, this time a crossdraw. Another colour but equally good quality!

Nice! Does it take an extra second to reach across?

Not really I'd say. If anything it's much easier to draw it like a sword due to the long barrel so it may even be faster. Didn't plan to be a gunslinger though tongue.gif
