Lets talk Flint Locks?

BCarps post really got my curiosity stirring. Now I don't know squat about a flintlock. I've never shot one or seen one in person being fired. Now I know loading them is the same as a cap lock. But what keeps your priming powder from falling out? What I mean is, do you have to prime the pan just before you shoot? Or do you have to keep the rifle level to keep the ffff from falling out of the pan? I know this may sound silly to you veterans but I really don't have a clue. What is the difference between a Knapped flint and one that isn't. I seen that TOW has both. And how many times can you fire the rifle with one flint. So I have a big tall glass of sweet tea and am ready to be enlightened
