  • Thanks - it's good to be back. I've been busy training and instructing, just haven't been on this forum for ages.
    I think we have a lot in common. Married 41 years, 3 kids, 5 grand kids and the 2 oldest just started driving. I can't be that old can I? good to know ya'.
    Right back at ya Jar Head, and thanks. However, as dumb as this may sound, other than joining USA Carry, to what group are you welcoming me?
    Grandpa is a good name. I'm not there yet, all in good time. I was sitting at the table looking at my son and wondering what shape the country and the world will be in when he’s a father.
    1 Wife. I feel the need to keep her as she does me, must be love.
    1 Daughter. My angel and my connection to what little feminine side I have.
    1 Son. My fishing buddy and firearms safety student, and a connection to the little boy that still lives in me.
    1 Cat. He brings me dead birds and chipmunks to eat. I haven't the heart to tell him I prefer beef..
    Chesterfield area here on the east side near Lake St. Clair. Its good to see others locally.
    Thanks, I am 30 miles N.E of Grand Rapids, MI almost dead middle between Grand Rapids and Lansing.
    Hello ricbak! Thanks for the Friend invite, also would like to thank you for your service to our country. My son is stationed at New River (Lejune) he's a refer mechanic in MAW271.
    I decided to put my Great-Great-Grandaddy's picture on as my Avatar. In he photo he is recuperating from a Minie ball going through his right thigh at Gettysburg. He was in the 4th Alabama.
    The weather is bad today the Sherrif called for a level 3 alert (no travel unless necessary) The rain and ice has now changed to snow. I will probably have to go to work tomorrow. Hope your weather is better.
    I'm going to add a picture of the sideplate of the 45-70 to My Toys Album.
    The trigger, sling hook, and side plate looks alot like your flintlock.
    Good Morning Ricbak
    There arn't any dates on the 45-70 but it has US Springfield on the side plate and a number behind the trap door 560614.
    My Dad found it in a hollow tree while he was traping when he was a boy 70+ years ago.
    I'm not sure if it was a cabine or someone cut the barrel off shorter and stuck a piece of copper in a hole for a front sight.
    Take Care
    I'm going to send you a friend request. I see 4 out of 5 of your Groups are the same as mine. Veterans and Guns, Hunting XD Owners, and Rugers.
    Take Care
