About Us - Blackdown Hunting & Game
The picture right is part of a demonstration at a Black Powder Display. It shows a 1740 muzzle loading flintlock being fired. Note that there is fire at both ends of the gun. The shooter is also dressed in period costume of a frontier mountain man. Shooting with this type of firearm takes quite a bit of practice as on some occasions there is a slight delay between the ignition in the flash pan and the main charge going off!
