Re: Poll on your method of cleaning Black Powder
Start to finish it takes me about 50 min to clean mine. I use two old coffee cans filled with hot soapy water. Put all the parts, frizzen, touch hole, etc in one and let soak while I clean the barrel in the other. After I'm finished with the barrel, I get everything out and lay them on a towel. (This is the best part), I drink a beer while I wait for the parts to air dry and then do the clean up work, wonder lube patches, cleaning moving parts with patches, etc, then put everything back together. This works for me, but others may say it's a waste of time. However, after shooting with others, I'm always told that I'm the guy that has the least mis-fires. I don't know if it's the gun or the care, but that's what I do.
If we ever forget that we're a nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
