They had me interested until I saw there was no adjustable spout.

If you are heading off to the reenactment this weekend with your arquebus, and you don't have one of these . . . well, be prepared to look embarrassed.

Meh. I prefer horns over flasks anyway. Besides, that won't match any of my guns.

Arquebus? I thought they could clear that up with a little penicillin?

You guys are thinking of the Arkabus. That's what you take when you are going West. 'Just after you get off the Missibus and before you get on the Oklabus.

Not sure it is a genuine antique but it sure is uneek and interesting.
For $7.99, as a repro, it would fit in with my large powderhorn collection.
