    Way better than fire works !!
    Just put 7 out of 8 shots in a tidy group on a 10L paint bucket lid from my new .50 cal muzzleloader at 100m.
    Patched round balls.
    No velocities as a bit dull for the chronograph.
    But ideal for plenty of fire and a huge cloud of smoke.
    A huge woooof when it goes off and almost no recoil.

    Hmmm daughter beating dad! Now that has a familiar ring to it. Well done Jamie. Resolve yourself to it happening with greater frequency Greg but know that it's your DNA that gave her the skill. Well that's the little consolation I give to myself anyway.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I've got daughters that are quick to point out when they get one over the old man too. There's a boyfriend hanging around that tries beating me also. I think he's getting tired of hearing "ya'all come on back if you ever want to try again".
    It's quiet nice getting beaten by a daughter, but I'll fight dirty to prevent a wannabee son in law getting me.
    Overkill is still dead.
