We will be importing a brand new powder specifically designed for Cowboy Action Shooting.
Tin Star is a single base nitrocellulose powder with certain properties that are similar to Black Powder (i.e. soft recoil), but without the bad characteristics of that propellant.

Tin Star is reliable, burns clean with very little fouling, meters accurately and has the bulk density you want for reloading the old original Black Powder cartridges.

We expect to have this powder in stock by the end of the month and we'll be testing it out and reporting back here with our findings.


Keep an eye on this page for information on our upcoming 2014 gun shows. Our next show will be in Saskatoon at Prairieland Park on Friday May 14th. (6pm-10pm), Saturday March 15th. (10am-6pm) and Sunday March 16 (10am-4pm). We'll be packin' a whole lot of guns including some very unique used guns.

Here's what we had on display at last September's Thorncliff show in Calgary, as you can see we had well over 30 guns on the table from black powder and early cartridge transition models to Bondarm derringers.
