    Wacky Shooting

    Got to the range today for a little wacky shooting. I’m not a filmmaker like BPMS so photographs will have to do. The gun used today is a Traditions Kentucky, .50 caliber.

    Traditional case?

    When transporting your traditional muzzleloader to the woods, range, rendezvous, etc., what case if any do you carry it in? Could we see some pictures?

    Right hand to left

    Has anyone here ever swapped shooting from right hand to left or vice versa? I'm right handed and have always shot that way. However the last few years eyesight in my right eye is not as good as my left. I've shot some guns left handed but not my flintlock yet.
