I first developed my fascination of flintlocks in my late
teens. The first reason was to extend my hunting season
and being located in central Pennsylvania the only choice was
the flintlock. This ended up being so much fun I want to
start shooting more and started a search for clubs in my area.
Little did I know that this would start me on a journey to know
more about the time frame these guns were used and the people
that used them.
I first started my hobby of gun building out of necessity.
Due to the lack of funds and me wanting to own a smoothbore
flintlock I started to think about trying to build one. I
always liked woodworking so finally in 2003 I built my first gun
and I haven't looked back since.
