    Dumb luck (i will never admit that) err... Great skill :P

    Went to visit my son in OKC to visit his range and do a little shooting. He shoots unmentionables and is very good out to 700 yards. I took my .62 smooth bore to shoot some clays and a few round balls. We sat down at a bench for the 200 yard gong using one of his custom unmentionables...

    Flints for Penn rifle

    Anyone have a source for flints for Traditions Penn rifle. The ones I keep getting say the will fit but all are much too thick to fit even with no leather on them. Thanks. p.s. someplace that actually has them as there seems a shortage of English flint
