So others and myself work with youth groups pretty much every month, non covid, and work with them on firearms history and let them shoot our flinters and percussion guns. So we start with history of BP. We do not have a matchlock and am considering getting one to add to the class for ignition how it was done. So the question is, where do you keep the match while loading? We use a bench behind the firing line to load, cap or prime on the line to shoot. So i can't take the matchlock cord behind the line to the bench, powder is there and kids. Do you install it each time on the matchlock on the line? I am asking for safety and logistics for our class. I could have a flinter next to me so even a lit march cord on a bench next to it, thinking in this case a handgonne? Trying to picture this on an active range with multiple types of firearms shooting. Safery first is of primary importance which is why we do the loading and priming for the youth always.
