    Thought I'd throw out some Rendezvous, hunting, shooting, bullseye competition and custom build photos from the Portland area.

    Here we are set inside the Museum of the Mountain Man , with our collection of original muzzle loaders.
    The Museum of the Mountain Man is a great place to visit and we love to be a part of it during our summer break.

    Boy Andy,in your first picture of the museum it doesn't look like it would have nearly as much room in it as in the second picture.:D

    Sure do love it when we get more threads on B.P.:):):)
    I'm sort of the odd duck here, I focus mainly on the conversion period of B.P. arms, the era when they went from Muzzle loading to self contained cartridges is my biggest joy! I also focus on the Naval and Revenue Cutter Service arms and accessories during this time frame! Just my thing, and a lot of less known (To the General Public) history!

    My attempt at a Southern Mt. Rifle. Ash stock, iron furniture, .32 X 42" X 3/4" straight octagon GM barrel. Wish I could have found a lollipop tang for it. My only percussion rifle.

    Nice pictures. Rifles look like a lot of fun. I have kind of concentrated my BP experience to revolvers and few conversion cylinders. My dad grew up with one of Mountain Man Joe Meek's descendants. Over the fireplace of his house he had two muzzle loading flintlock rifles. In the late 50's-early 60's I got the handle them and even dry fire one. The shower of sparks startled me when I pulled the trigger. They were supposedly a few of many rifles Joe Meek had owned in his lifetime. No way to really prove but they were old and had seen hard use from what I remember over 55 years ago.

    Last weekend in June.
    Sternwheeler Days in Cascade Locks
    Not sure how it rates for size for such things, but they have a blacksmith working, lots of show-and-tell stuff, maybe a dozen to fifteen tents. Jeannie and I usually check it out. One year they had a candy mortar. That was fun to watch. If you decide to come I''d like to meet you.
