I just signed on, I am retired from the USPHS after 30 years of Gov't. service. I had nothing to do with the current political status. I am an avid flintlock shooter and builder. I do not built fancy guns just those to be used. I also, enjoy woodworking, guitar playing (bluegrass), motorcycles, and of course hunting. I guess you could say that I am also a limited gunsmith. I hope to share information and ideas throughout the next few years.
