    We're shooting a classic American flintlock longrifle. This is a Pennsylvania rifle with an iron mounted York County style stock, built by Tennessee Valley Muzzleloading, A.K.A. TVM. The rifle is .50 caliber with a straight 7/8th of an inch by 42-inch long barrel.

    LOL I don't think he's a reenactor, just immersing himself in the period to a point. I recommend it all. What great fun...

    Think you should check my Gun A Week thread...

    The frock looks a lot better in the video in bright sunlight than it does in person...smells better too...*LOL*

    I'll be at Fort Frederick for Market Fair next month, if any of you are going, I camp on the hill by the big pine tree.

    Even Worse!

    Imagine Redcoat reenactors who spent so much on their unit-specified regimentals that no matter how many times you fire over their heads they REFUSE to fall down and die!
