Traveling through central Pennsylvania on a business trip, I stopped in the Shippensburg/Chambersburg area about ten years ago at a unique gun store called “Fort Chambers.” It is a gun shop dedicated to selling black powder firearms and all the parts to make your own. It was run by a remarkable and very knowledge old gent who really knew his stuff. I wasn't planning to buy, just get some information on how to maybe assemble my own. That's until I held “Old Becky” (named after Daniel Boone’s wife) a Pennsylvania long rifle hand made in 'Bama. It was love at first sight. As soon as I held her, I knew she would be mine and out came the plastic. Old Becky shoots pretty much dead on a 100 yards and 85 gr. 777 plus 20 gr. FFFF in the breech and the pan for a very fast ignition. When hot, she shoots 6 inches left. I still jump when she goes off, dropping the muzzle and missing the deer, but hunting with her is the most fun I’ve had with my clothes on. The pistol was a kit I assembled as a teenager, the possibiles bag is too small to hold anything realistic. I added them to the picture for ambiance.
