Christmas, hunted with it a few times, then went back to my traditional rifle for hunting purposes. Fast forward a few years and a friend invites me to a woods walk shoot with a club called PA Longrifle Militia. Lots of fun even if I’m not a particularly good shot.
Another year or so passes and the same friend that got me interested in the blackpowder shoots asks me if I would be interested in doing some 18th Century reenacting with the Cumberland County Militia. I gave it a try, enjoyed it so much that I asked my wife and son to try it as well. My friend has allowed me to use his muskets/rifles for a few events because you need a traditional flintlock firearm to participate.
This past weekend with the help of another friend (also a member of the Cumberland County Militia) I have started to build
We got the barrel inletted, and I am excited to get more parts to continue building. I will post more as my project progresses.
