Riflemaker, Homer Dangler talks with Black Powder Mag

One cannot think of flint riflemakers without including Homer Dangler. A maker of muzzleloaders for decades, Homer is widely respected for his work.¬†Home Dangler has been a part of Friendship for many years. He began attending Friendship when I was 10 years old. His booth has been a stop of mine since I began attending in 1977. There are always neat guns to look at and drool over. Although Homer is 82, he is still active whether it’s making fine guns, building airplanes, or flying them. Home and I sat down and recorded an interview, and we also took photos of some of his recent gun projects. The recording failed in our first try. We arranged to meet at the CLA show in Lexington in August. Our second interview was done there near the finest display of original and contemporary long rifles in the world. Included here are some of the photos we took of Homer and his work.

 

Some were done at Friendship, with the last few taken at CLA.PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
