There are supportive friends who I have not got into communication with and acknowledged yet.  I will hopefully be able to do so in a timely manner.

I am the lucky member of a liberal shooting society  (that is the way our club is called : société de tir) that allows black powder at either its 25 or 50 metres shooting ranges - we can shoot black powder revolvers and the like side by side with rimfire and centrefire firearms shooters - I also shoot my PCP and spring piston airguns there, to be quite honest. That way you can discover other ways of shooting and also learn TOLERANCE.

This is the second time this has happened here in two years. So many people lost everything. I consider myself and my family lucky, especially lucky to have friends here who have my back. There are not enough words to express my gratitude.

This is what Lumberton looks like now... ^y%

Je suis non français...but I have been around enough of y'all to get that vibe!

Ranges that allow BP are few and far between here in Chicagoland (Illinois, USA) so I'm jealous and curious of you guys that can go shoot them all the time...

But I get to lurk here and dream!

I escaped that area 10 years ago. Have a house and a little piece of land (10 acres) in Missouri. I agree shooting BP in that area is difficult. When I lived there I was a member of 2 ranges in Wisconsin - Bristol and the Wisconsin Sportsman's Association (WSA) Range:

Both were a drive but I found I liked the WSA more. Little more laid back than Bristol. Could fully load a magazine with RSO's approval instead of that annoying load 1 shoot 1 rule at Bristol. Range had spotting scopes to borrow IIRC. I believe they have BP shooting day as well.

I know there is a Feinwerkbau Match Roger & Spencer, a Super Match Neumann Pietta Remington with a Lothar Walther barrel (these Lothar Walther barrels are highly prized in Europe) and a Hege Army Match Maximum Remington, but wouldn't be able to tell a Remington New Army model from the other.

It is my understanding that Hege does import standard models but they do sell a match grade Uberti but I forget what it's called. I think all FWB's are match grade but I could be wrong.
