This is a heads up for my skills DVDs being no longer available very soon. The company who sells these take them off the market if they are not selling over a period of 240 days, mine have not sold over the past 240 days despite the excellent reviews. So if you were thinking of getting any, now is the time!

Muzzle-Loaders and More will be the first to go because it has not sold over the past 244 days. Believe me, I make no profit from these DVDs if you include my time. I could order one myself to keep these going, but frankly that would reduce my earnings to zero and if they are just not selling I don't see the point. 
Regards to all, Keith.

Update: Thanks to a timely cancellation, I managed to get in for my surgery on Feb. 8. So, I am now recuperating, and should at least be on my feet by the time our War of 1812 re-enacting season starts in May. Won't be helping pull the cannon for a few months, though. Fortunately, I will be fully recovered in time for the hunting season in the fall.

**sigh** Well, the Canadian health care system plods along as usual. I will finally get my initial consult with the surgeon at the end of January. God only knows when they'll finally get me on the table.
Anyone who tells you Canada does not have a two-tier health care system is either a liar or an idiot. I can guarantee you that if I were a professional athlete or a prominent politician, I would already have been operated on and well on the road to recovery. This is the price of "free" health care...
Hopefully, I will at least be back in shape for the summer re-enactment season.

My cousin tore a pec muscle this week, so his bow season is over for the season...maybe forever!!! Get better my friend, when I was on active duty I tore about every tendon and ligament in my right knee ...I feel your pain...literally!!!!

Well, the gun is in good working order, Chris. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the shooter! I had a little mishap a couple of weeks ago, and tore the ACL in my right knee. Unfortunately, that pretty much puts my hunting for this year on the back burner. I'm expecting surgery sometime in Jan.

My goal .... this deer season drop a critter with the "giggle gun".
I took a little advice, and opened up my touch hole a little more hang fires!!!
I have named this gun Helen.... after my Grandmother.
