Shooting my .40 caliber flintlock longrifle

I built this .40 caliber flintlock longrifle 20 years ago. It was my last build because I finally admitted I'm not as good as the professional builders and never will be. But it is fun to shoot.

I know this may be too basic for this crew, but in the video I'll show how to load a flintlock muzzleloader, and we'll do some shooting.

Oh man. I want a B/P rifle like this so bad. That's gonna be my next gun. A 40 cal or 50 cal it really doesn't matter. I have a pistol but no rifle yet. My dad use to have a T C hawkens 50 that I used and loved. But he passed last year and his wife got it now. And great video and informational to people who's never shoot a BP at all. But me it just made me druel over your rifle.

I'll handle the practicals and you, the particulars !!

Taught a hunter safety class, yesterday at my usual M/L station. Our time is limited so we don't go into a lot of detail, on Rock-Crushers. Out of the blue, I refered to your various videos where the students could go in a get more detail. This was not planned and your Camp-Name was easy for me to remember. ....

Kindly take satisfaction in knowing that you are playing an important teaching role for potential young M/L hunters and enthusiest. .....

Keep them coming and;
Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.

I'm always happy to see young folks get involved in the shooting sports, especially muzzleloading. I hope my videos do some good for your students.
