Debra Sieloff US shooter proudly informed us about her success in ML shooting:
„I have bought, taught myself to load and shoot your 12g Blackpowder shotgun to much success. I have a number 1 SCI Osceola Turkey for muzzleloader division, and 2 SCI Top Tens, one for muzzleloader Eastern Turkey and one for muzzleloader Merriams turkey. Just thought that I would let you know that it has been a lot of fun. I had a lot of experience with competitive flintlocks, but this was something I wanted to do. Just some feedback on the firing mechanisms. They do clog, and all 3 birds were shot with the second pull. Also, the real black powder works a lot better than synthetic.”
We congratulate Debra on her success, and we wish her similar hunting experiences in the future as well.
Pedersoli was present on this years’s reenactment of the battle of Marengo in Italy to support the reenactors coming from all over Europe.
Battle of Marengo, (June 14, 1800), narrow victory for Napoleon Bonaparte in the War of the Second Coalition, fought on the Marengo Plain about 3 miles (5 km) southeast of Alessandria, in northern Italy, between Napoleon’s approximately 28,000 troops and some 31,000 Austrian troops under General Michael Friedrich von Melas; it resulted in the French occupation of Lombardy up to the Mincio River and secured Napoleon’s military and civilian authority in Paris.

Our compliments to all the reenactors attending Marengo’s battle fighting the tough time under the sun in the dust letting the public live the history.
