Took my flintlock Charleville musket replica to the range yesterday for a leisurely couple of hours trying to figure how to aim it (it has only a front sight). This is an ongoing project with little expectation of any success, but it's a lot of fun (noise, smoke, flash), and it's shooting a firearm. I've got a few flint guns, most of which I made from kits or Dixie Gun Works parts, which will be my focus until all the backorders get filled. Oh, and I was able to consistently hit a man-sized silhouette target in its middle at 50 yards before I quit.

So why not stand down from handloading cartridges for a while and instead handload the gun?
