Davy didn't kill bears with Old Betsy, he grinned them to death.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

I'll have my homemade flintlock (50 cal PRB over 82gr 3F) and my Optima V2 (300gr .430 XTP over 100gr 777) ready to do the deed.

I'm hoping to be using my 62 cal. Smoothbore flintlock. Backup gun if for some reason I cant get it shooting well enough will be my 50 cal Hawkins. I have no plans of getting my inline out but if it is a downpour I'll take it instead of staying home.
