A lot of people own and shoot various old-fashioned weapons, and it is quite an art to get the best reliability and performance out of them. Aside from reenactors, and other people who happen to think they're cool (which they are) most if not all states have hunting seasons set aside for such weapons, including special "primative" seasons. Here in Idaho the hunting regs. are turning to primative only, i.e. no in-line actions or sabot projectiles. Hence, more people are getting traditional design side-locks (caplock or flintlock).What kind of discussion are you going to have about muskets? I mean, seriously, muskets are what my great-grandfather used to kill the indians!
Does anyone still own a musket?
You shot a squirrel with a 69 caliber? Something tells me he went down quickly.Sorry bout the late post
