    I started with a few muzzle loaders in the 70s and shot some BP revolver, then gave it all way. August last yr I purchased a 58 cal Enfield, since sold as at the same time I bought a trap door Springfield replica in 45/70 and got hooked on cartridge guns, now added the snider, yet to fire and a martini 577/450 for a sore shoulder and a nose bleed and last a really neat husqvarna 45/70 bolt action. I am amazed at the accuracy and shoot with a very relaxed buch of guys here in Tauranga, now try to collect different actions.also shoot BP 12guage and mucking with a load for my homemade double gun.
