    Just fired my 200+/- year old flintlock coach gun for the first time this year since I bought it in 2017, and now I'm hooked on BP and want to do it some more!

    I was afraid this would happen. ;-)

    (Waiving from the Mid Hudson area) I'm planning to get out and try my percussion today. It will be my 1st time with a ML, but knowing my experiences with cartridge guns, I expect to be addicted!

    I hope you make it out over the wall. It seems to get higher every day here.

    It went well. The gun worked and I didn't screw up.

    Welcome to the Forum! Any chance of a picture of that 200+ year old flintlock coach gun? And how was the experience of shooting it? We need a full-blown field report!

    I've got a post going on it, down in the smoothbore section. Still trying to figure out how safe it is to shoot.
