Re: pan cover
Typically, a leather hood call a cows knee is used to cover the whole lock, and tether to the triggerguard. It pushes off of the lock for firing. Some used a bread loaf wrapper slipped over the gun. And slide it to the wrist to shoot.
A frizzen cover is a tad more than that, it is also used as a hammerstall. Pulling a leather stall off before shooting is quieter than the CLICK of going from the safe/half cock to the firing/full cock position. And is thick enough for any unintended trigger pull to not make it go boom!
Can the neoprene take the beating of a flint without penetrating to the frizzen?
