Do not know if flints are in short supply. I ordered some from a guy named GRIZZ and they looked good as far as my knowledge goes. Found him on the SASS WIRE FORUM. He said he had a plenty.

A while back there was a shortage and from what I heard this weekend none have been coming over be from Europe.

I loaded up when I found them Saturday.

I ordered flints from Track a couple weeks back… They had a limit of 1 dozen per order at that time… But had black English flints in supply.

That is why it makes so much sense to learn how to knapp arrow heads and spear points. Good gun flints by comparison are quite easy to make from the waste chert one has from point making and you'll never run out.

No natural flint within about 500 miles or more. I'd love to find a spot where I could collect a few nodes and work on developing knapping skill. I know I can practice on beer bottles, but they don't spark worth a damn.

having cap guns doesn't make you a bad person. I sure have plenty of them. LOL. I don't know how long that a flint last's? do you mean how many firing's or the test of time.?

Nice to know I'm not a bad guy :thumb: I have couple of flintlocks and like them but if you like revolvers:horseback: you are pretty much stuck with caps😅
