Hello everyone!
I’m new to the forum but not new to muzzleloading. I have been at it off and on since I was sixteen. Just turned sixty five and have belonged to a club on Owatonna MN for years. On a waiting list for Dakota County gun club. Right now I have only one flintlock (Hatfield .50) and the Ol’ reliable percussion T/C Hawken .50.
I’m amazed by the knowledge out the among the members and look forward to harvesting wisdom.
It seems there aren’t too many traditional sidelock shooters so we better stick together. I’m also in the south metro in Apple Valley, MN. I’d really enjoy shooting with a fellow black powder enthusiast.
Glad to be apart of the tradition.

Thanks for the welcome Zonie,
I’m looking forward to learning all I can about flintlocks, their geometry, the different schools producing such distinctive styles and anything I can do to fine tune a lock.I’m particularly interested in the angle of the cock in relation to the frizzen as well as spring tension to kick the frizzen forward.
Thanks again!
