    Hello from southern indiana

    Hello, I am retired maintenence tech, old SEABEE{DANANG 66/67} live northwest of English, Indiana in hills, and near Patoka Lake. I just acquired a 1858 New Army revolver, in 44 cal. replica. It is marked as black powder, If this is not the place for me, pse advise. I really like what I have seen here so far, and look forward to further exploration of the site. regards, Dryrun

    Marines Love SEABEEs! We 'love you Long Time' Sailor. Hugs and Kisses. Welcome here.

    - Hot Chow
    - Hot Showers
    - Heavy Equipment (stand down, not what it sounds like) to dig holes that us Marines do with a tiny E-Tool
    - Heat
    - Heads with paper (no need to explain)
    - Hair Cuts with electric razors, as opposed to.... BTDT
    - Mail (because unlike the Mairne Corps, the Navy does not forget where they left you)
    - Water that is both hot and cold and you can drink

    I will not go on. It would be a long list.

    Thank you for your Service and Welcome Home!

    Welcome from Virginia.

    There are a lot of us here that have experience with black powder, so feel free to pick our brains.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
