Default Old Hillbilly Advice:

I got this in an email today. Thought I'd pass it along. His giant flintlock looks as mean as his expression. He's definitely "Cocked 'n Locked". I wonder how it patterns.

Advice from An Old Hillbilly:

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
Keep skunks, bankers, and politicians at a distance.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
Words that soak into your ears are whispered, not yelled.
The best sermons are lived, not preached.
Forgive your enemies; its what GOD says to do.
If you don't take the time to do it right, you'll find the time to do it twice.
Don't corner something that is meaner than you.
Donít pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, heíll just kill you.
It donít take a very big person to carry a grudge.
You cannot unsay a cruel word.
Every path has a few puddles.
When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
Don't be banging your shin on a stool that's not in the way.
Borrowing trouble from the future doesn't deplete the supply.
Most of the stuff people worry about ainít never gonna happen anyway.
Donít judge folks by their relatives.
Silence is sometimes the best answer.
DonĎt interfere with somethiní that ainít botherin' you none.
Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digginí.
Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.
The biggest troublemaker youíll ever have to deal with watches you from the mirror every morniní.
Always drink upstream from the herd.
Good judgment comes from experience, and most of that comes from bad judgment.
Lettiní the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttiní it back in.
If you get to thinkiní youíre a person of some influence, try orderiní somebody elseís dog around.
Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, youíll enjoy it a second time.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
Most times, it just gets down to common sense.

I guess he checked that ol stump out before he sat down most of them stumps here in the mountains contain a rattler or a copperhead! It would be interesting to know how they made those barrels back then, Gary

Not much choke in that old thing.

And this one's got no choke either - cut from 28" to a deadly 24"...

Gary, go to Colonial Williamsburg and to the gunmakers exhibit. There is a fine tutorial and show and tell on the subject. Nothing is done there after 1775 period all is done with period tools and materials and method. A great place
