Sounds like a good weekend to me. What was the brand of black powder rifle? I think you will like the SR45. Nice gun.

CVS composite stock SS barrel, with 3x9scope, with carry case. My plan is to raffle it off as a fund raiser for the Erie American Legion. This year we raffle off a Dewalt cordless tool kit, circular saw, reciprocal saw, drill, and light, 2nd prize was very nice lawn swing, and 3rd prize, 25 gal. cast iron bean pot! We did a Corn hole tournament with a $40.00 buy in with 11 teams. Friday we cooked 1400 lbs. Of navy beans and gave them away in 40 minutes. We have 40 large cast iron pots, we cook in! Overloadded
