Awww, yes. I wasn't awake this morning when I typed this. The Black Powder Shooters are members of the HHAA but it is the HHAA that is sponsoring the Gettysburg/ Civil War Memorial Shoot.

Sorry about the misleading information.

We had a great time with HHAA and learned a lot about the different types of rifles and it was the first time I loaded a muzzleloader.  The most interesting gun I shot was the 9 shot revolver with a 2nd shotgun barrel.  We need more old tech.

Everyone was very helpful.

I thought I read on your website that cannons weren't allowed. LOL

So which side won the war this time?

SHHHHHHHH!!!! That's not a cannon. It is a large caliber black powder rifle.  :geekdanc: :geekdanc: :geekdanc:

The side on the right always wins.
