Thanks for posting.
An old mentor of mine from down around Franklin use to tell me that a deer killed with a flintlock will go to straight to heaven. :tu:

Flintlock....the only truly reliable source of ignition for a muzzle loader.

Not a doubt in my mind! Wobbly

But they’re not for everyone as you know,
there’s a lot of people out there who can’t shoot anything without a scope on it.

Nowadays even the B.B. guns seem too have scopes on them.

Where’s the challenge?

It’s kinda’ like driving a nail with a hammer vs a nail gun...

I may eventually be converted , but it’ll be when they pry my cold , dead fingers from the grasp of my Flintlock.

That old mentor was always telling entertaining stories and such and much with a facetious side as with the deer's heavenly reward for getting himself shot with a flintlock. He did show me what could be done with one and especially with a pistol....think he still holds a record at Friendship. I miss him a bunch.

You are right on todays shooters. Only a few show any interest at all in the old timey muzzle loading shooting and I'm not sure the numbers will make our beloved hobby sustainable. One thing I noticed in your video was that it appeared to be an offhand shot and with an obvious degree of accuracy. That's another thing you done see shooters practicing much anymore.

Fooled ya’ , It was shot off of a Hemroid cushion from the window seal of my shootin’ shack! LOL

I do practice shooting off hand , as you know most , not all Flintlock matches are shot off hand it seems.

As a Kid I was a pretty good shot off hand , but after 40 years of sniffing paint fumes , I’m lots better off the hemroid cushion.

Or at least it’s not as big of a pain in the butt too make a good shot! LOL

Don’t ask how I ended up with a hemroid cushion in my shootin’ shack too start with....

Our Hobby, Passion for the Sport is un- chartered territories for most, Crowds at events have dwindled down too a small trickle.

The old ways are dying ...

It’s a shame too , people just don’t know what they're missing.

Hunting with a modern gun is just not the same, if your in it for the meat , then that’s understandable too use a modern weapon.

If your in it for pleasure , then make it a challenge.

I’m just Living the Dream, something I’ve always wanted too do.

Shoot my Black Powder guns & Hunt and Fish for a living!

Only problem is it don’t pay as well as working , but I’m saving gas not having to travel very far to hunt and don’t have to get up and go everyday. Only the better ones...LOL

Flintlocks Rock!

Merry Christmas too you and yours Wobbly , see ya in January at the show!
