    I went out and shot my matchlock and two handgonnes. Lots of fun and smoke but I sure didn't hit much. The matchlock is a 12 gauge and the handgonnes are .50 caliber. P6200440.JPG P6200440.JPG

    very neat.

    You really did not expect to hit much did you?

    Interesting part of our history.

    Very cool. Did you build them yourself or buy them?

    All self built except the 12 gauge barrel blank. It really helps when you want them to look old and somewhat crude. There is no way I could build a nice looking custom rifle.

    Handgonne makers are hard to find. You might have a market.
