    Burned a little powder today.

    Took my 36 cal and shot it some today. I enjoy shooting it. It fires fast and reliably, if I do my part.
    Doesn't use much powder and no recoil to speak of.
    I shot at a little over 30 yards. Got 1 round I dropped low. Other than that, it was an enjoyable time.

    With the cost of ammo so high, dont expect a warning shot.

    No, not quite.
    I commissioned a gunmaker in north east Pa to build it.
    The gunmaker owns an unsigned original Lehigh rifle from around 1820. Its copied from that rifle.
    It sports a Rice A weight swamped barrel that is 42 in long. A Chambers Late Ketland lock with a single pinned trigger. The furniture is as close as I could get for a Lehigh style rifle.
    No fancy stuff on it, just a mouldings line along the forestock.
    It's a plain, simple rifle. A " schimmel", or barn gun. Although I would never let it sit in the barn.

    From what I understand, a Pedsoli is an ok entry level gun. They dont mirror any style, or school of original long rifles. But they do shoot well, when they decide to go bang. Lol.
