Check out Gunadapteres.com. It is the site for ShortLane Chamber inserts etc. They have the Black Powder insert!
I had a Black Powder .36 caliber Kentucky Long Rifle it was extremely accurate and I killed a few deer with that rifle.

Thanks, I imagine yoou would do Ok, but at 71 I am not certain how long I could last strictly from a health standpoint. I grew up in Penna., outside the Phils area, and my Grandparents lived their entire life in Bradford, Pa, known as the "Icebox of Penna!." Tough country with steep hills, thick woods & brutal winters. Hunting there was demanding with deep snow and often sub zero temps. my Grandfather was a Professional Guide and PH who hunted around the world, all 4 Continents, in the late 50's through the 70's! He used to supply film to Marlin Perkins old Mutual of Omaha series. My brother and I learned from a vey early age about hunting and surviving in the "bush". I appreciate the invite, and will try and take you up on that.
I am in my 60's and I think I could survive or teach others to survive, as a boy I attended outward bound in Rock Island Maine which was a survival/confidence building School of sorts that school served me well in the U.S.Army where I attended SERE School and has served me well for many years I am no spring chicken now but many youngsters would find it hard to keep up with me in the forest. Marlin Perkins, I think I watched every one of his Mutual of Omaha series.

DID my time in the Marines. Had a draft number of 23, so I was going one way or the other. Went through OCS,84th Class and served Overseas in 72-73 (Nam) with a force of Brits, Aussies and NZ's as a liaison officer comparing techniques and weapons etc. Because of that posting I was asked to join the govt, and I spent time with DOD,DIA,DSE,SPB in Europe taking out the "trash". I worked almost exclusively in urban settings. So my "woods" skills are only what I learned growing up and in the service. When they closed those "programs" I went into the Business sector. I've been married (4) times. Tough to have a decent relationship when you can't share anything you do. The last one worked out and we have been together 28 years. Finally got it right! I would love to keep learning and I am open to you showing me the ropes. I have cleaned a deer and that is about it. It all sounds very interesting.

Your skin and gut a hog like you do a deer but several glands must be removed so the meat will not taste bad and large boars must be castrated quickly after killing them.

I purchased the Primary Arms Classic Series 6x32mm Rifle Scope - ACSS-22LR.

We take the time to 100% inspect every product in our facility here in Houston to ensure you are receiving the best quality product as our other three tiers. These scopes are backed by the same excellent customer service and support as all other Primary Arms products.

The ACSS 22LR reticle is a giant leap forward in 22LR reticle design, utilizing bullet drop compensation correlated with range estimation and wind holds, all in one simple system so you can use it for plinking, hunting, or competition use. The ACSS 22LR reticle increases the first hit ratio and decreases time on target and is specifically designed for range clays, cans, bottles, and more. With the included manual, you will be able to fully utilize the ranging features and bullet drop compensation in no time. Like most of our products, this tough scope features a lifetime warranty. This magnified 22 scope is designed to last and continue working alongside your .22 caliber rifle for many years to come.
Features:
