African Antelope Horns are used to make a range of hand crafted powder horns that are unique.The traditional shooter would not carry his black powder in anything else.
Even our workshop looks like a museum with some machines being about 80 years old and still going strong. Most of our hand tools date back to the middle of the 19th and beginning of the 20th Century right into the days when black powder was common.

A place for a Bow or Black Powder Rifle
Traditional archers and black powder rifle hunters seem to be a kindred spirit. Both disciplines seem to highlight the primitive hunter/gatherer part of our personalities.
Black Powder Basics
Knowing that the basics of Black Powder Shooting is not as complicated as many think hopefully will inspire the reader to become involved in this challenging sport.

Cleaning your Black Powder Muzzleloader
I have over the years heard so many active and prospective shooters expressing dread at the thought of the task of cleaning their black powder guns after a day’s shoot. Almost all of them are under the misconception that it is a task rather given to a slave than one that can be done by you. I have never found it to be so bad. Maybe that is because I have all the right tools for the job.The first thing to understand is thatBlack powder guns “HAVE” to be thoroughly cleaned as soon as is possible after being used. This applies even more so in Coastal areas where humidity is higher. I am not a chemical bof but a quick lesson may be in order. As you are probably aware, Black Powder is made of Sulfur, Saltpeter or Potassium Nitrate and Charcoal. Potassium Nitrate is positively hygroscopic, which means that it attracts water.
