OK, not a double but here's my tom from this year. Shot fair and square after calling him to decoys. Used my .50 flintlock copy of a JP Beck with 47" barrel. Great gun!

Joe, is that a rifle or a smooth-bore. Ball or shot? Just curious...Geo

Oh, and congratulations on the big bird. For the 1st year in a while, I got skunked this year.

George, the barrel is round bottomed rifled 1 in 56" by Getz. Rifle is a documentary copy Jud Brennan did for me of a JP Beck smoothbore from somewhere around 1790 to 1800. Lock was totally hand forged and is a great sparker. Wonderful piece of sugar maple in the stock. Thanks for asking.

The best description of what a turkey does when a flinter misfires was told to me recently by a man who has hunted them on turkeys for years. As the gun went "whoossh" rather than "BOOM" and the shot dribbled out the end of the muzzle, like water out of a low pressured hose, the turkey appeared to run in six different directions at once as he left the scene unscathed.

That's a very attractive flintlock there. Using a flintlock rifle on turkey is especially challenging. Many folks think there is an inevitable delay between pulling the trigger and the gun going off with a flintlock. Actually, having any noticeable delay indicates that either the lock/touch-hole is poorly designed, or the shooter doesn't know how to load it properly. Having a half second delay on a turkey will likely mean the bird is a step or two away from where you were aiming when the ball arrives.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

Looks like it was a great day Joe. Nice bird and a very pretty gun.
