Just a great time! He wanted to shoot a flintlock so I pulled out my favorite flinter and we had a great time. I treasure these times.......... Greg

    Great photos of your flinter in action. It is extra fun when your son can do things with you. On the down side, please have him use safety glasses and hearing protection. I shot for years, cuz I didn't know any better and now wear hearing aids. Even with the hearing aids, my hearing isn't all that great.

    No shooting glasses with a flintlock isn't very wise, sorry to be a spoiled sport. But thanks for the pics anyway.

    I completely agree Larry P. I brought that to his attention and when we shot targets later in the day he had some protection at that time. Thanks for your reply! Greg

    Sounds like you and your son had a great day. I can't seem to get any of my family interested in these guns of old...but I keep trying! :)
