View Full Version : New toy for my birthday.

One advantage of having raised sons to be gun nuts like their old man and exposing them to the wonderful smell of just-fired blackpowder at a tender age is that they remember you when you turn 60. One of my runts bought me a Pedersoli Charles Moore dueling pistol with flintlock ignition.

Got a chance to try it last weekend at 7 yards and was able to put 5 shots into one ragged hole with the right ball and patch combination and that's offhand, one hand target stance. The set trigger helps a lot as does the fast(for a flintlock) ignition. The ignition is helped by a patent breech.

So the gun has my recommendation for anyone wanting a nice looking and good shooting flintlock pistol.
