And I'm outta tags.

This gal walked about 60 yards in front of my flintlock a little after 8:00 this morning. Bang, flop. Or more accurately..........pfft, bang, flop.

Thank you, sir !!

This is really becoming an addiction for me. I had this rifle for several years and just finally went out with it once last year. Didn't get the bug too bad. But the last several days I put some time in and the deer were fairly cooperative. the ball that downed today's doe is probably about the 10th or 12th shot that's ever been fired from the gun and several of those were unload discharges. But from the 3 shots I took last year to sight in and the few I took at deer, it seems to be a VERY accurate rifle with a VERY fast ignition time. I think I will hang on to it.

i have shot plenty of round balls out of a percussion cap gun, but never a flintlock .

i could see myself pulling the shoots.

it must take a good bit of self discipline, and to take a deer with one well thats something many people these days will never do good job congratulations
