Keep your powder dry pertained to the powder in the pan of the flintlock.
I use to do some buckskinning till I broke my hip which has really slowed me down. Buckskinning pertains to pre 1840 which is considered the end of the great fur trade. But events that are pre 1825 require flintlock rather then percussion. So have some of both. Though sold off most of my buckskinning stuff I saved the big boy toys & still take them out & shoot them occasionally.
Like the Uzi as a sidearm, my black powder version of sidearm. http://photobucket.com/albums/0803/RossWalls/588e5aab.jpg
Double barrel 12 gauge. Takes forever to load as you put the powder in, then the under wad, then the shot, then the over wad, & then caps on the nipples. Sure do go BOOOOOM though. :lol:
