Went on a field trip with my daughter's fourth-grade class to the Alamo last week (one of the "fringe benefits" of living near San Antonio). Afterward, I volunteered to her teacher to demonstrate a flintlock and caplock for the kiddos. She seemed really excited to have me do that and said she would work with the school principal to get the proper approval, etc. I have never shot "blanks" with a muzzle loader, but I believe I can do so with a load of powder topped with a patch (or paper wad). Am I correct or is there something else I should do? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
