    Muzzle loader barrel

    Does anyone use the muzzle loader/black powder barrel on their maverick 88 or Mossberg 500? I have one that was given to me along with some powerbelt projectiles and triple seven 50 grain pellets. The powder pellets and bullets are compatible and do have limited load data for each bullet. My...

    Tree stands

    Something I never really thought about was the requirement for a tree stand. I always plopped a squat in front of a tree trunk and waited. As I start to get older the comfort of a stand is a needed luxury. Not to mention the increased line of sight and other benefits that come with a stand. But...

So I refinished the stock, removed the rust from the barrel and reblued it and today I decided to assemble the gun. Here's...
