Throwing Hawks

Was watching Outdoor channel and this guy was tossing hawks . I forgot about my Hammer Forged Hawks the last time I threw them was in a match in 1980's in a Az BP State match . Took me a hour to find them . Sorry about pics size but PB is slow

My problem is that I throw like a girl. Don't think I'll be trying those anytime, soon.

Throwing like girl is the way you need to throw them . My girlfrend did good with them . The trick is to let Hawk handle slide out of your hand .

Okay, but I would strongly advise standing well off to the side and behind me when I try it.

Speaking of traditional BP stuff, there was a friend of ours at the range shooting a Traditions 32 cal squirrel rifle. Had Bill go over and watch him load and shoot for awhile to get an idea of what to expect when we start shooting our MLs. He was using Pyrodex, but even so, the smell brought back a lot of memories. Can't wait to get out and soot ours, but, surprise, surprise, it is snowing, again, this morning, though most of it is melting when it hits the ground. I guess that's our definition of spring, up here - snow melting when it hits the ground.

In my part of Tx nights been it the 60's for the last week and we hit 94 yesterday and today . With low or no humidity the weather is perfect . In like La , Pa or Tn 80 with high humidity is unbearable and I can take it .

I have a few tricks for 32 & 36 cal BP guns to keep them running to where not cleaning them all day long .

You aren't the only one that throws like a girl.

I know there are several of us that would love to get the benefit of your expertise in muzzleloading, TX. We sure do appreciate your posts on the subject.

This is how you throw the first pitch. You don't have to like baseball to like this video.
