I know theres already probably a thread elsewhere but who cares.
Anyway I plan to be there Saturday afternoon for the usual re supply of flints and black powder solvent.

I have ready supply of BP solvent if you want some, but it might have gone cold by the week end.

Good grief, you are as bad as Dingo (although no where near as enthusiastic about it)

:roll: I think Tod means from the kettle not the bladder. :)

Shame Dingo wasn't at GPM, it would have been hilarious seeing him try to pee down the hot barrel after any of the skirmishes. :D :shock: :oops:

I'll be there on Saturday with brats in tow to get them kit for next season. But don't let that put you off.

Also need to get my frizzen hardened. It just about gave up the ghost at GPM. Oh and lots more flints.

As a Kiwi it would have made no difference to him, other than labeling it "extreme gun cleaning".

You mean that you heathens 'wee' down your barrels? Ugh, how disgusting. However, I will continue to s**t in my sporran in order to soften the leather. Someone told me it was the 'authentic' way to do things - then he ran off laughing....I wonder why?

Prior warning : I shall be at TORM on Friday afternoon ('skiving' from work) and on the Saturday morning too (for I will certainly have forgotten to buy the things I want on the Friday)...just thought you need to know so that you can hide in time...just don't catch my eye otherwise I shall sit down next to you in the cafe; if I say "Will you be my friend?" and "I know where you live!" please don't be overly worried, they are only 'words'...actually, regarding the last one, perhaps you should change your locks...just as a precaution...no real problems (the restraining order is still 'in date').

I only picked up a few flints. The selection Ron had left at about 3pm wasn't great. I did pick up a bit of leather to seat the flints better though (old one had work too thin to be much good).

The most successful thing was leaving my frizzen to be rehardened (again). Too many misfires at the last few events for my liking... (and we can't all go "click" and expect those pesky Jacobites to run away)
