Charlie Stone from Ottsville???

I bought my first flintlock stuff from Charlie and also got my first bit of knowledge from him and also yelled at for wanting to shoot more than 75gr of powder out of my PA hunter. I believe he passed away a few years ago, but I never saw anything happen with his shop. It was loaded with old machinery and just about everything else you could think of. Did it get passed along to anyone else?

The sign still stands on the east side of Rt 611 as you go up the hill in Ottsville, no idea what happened to the shop.

I wonder about it each time I drive to camp and I pass the sign.

Charlie had some great stories! I used to stop in to say "Hello" and see what he had in the shop...miss those days!

Bigfoot saw me but nobody believes him!

Re: Charlie Stone from Ottsville???

I ran into Charlie in a nursing home in Hellertown about three years back. I was visiting a family member. He was quite the character for the nursing staff.
I remember buying my first accessories from him nearly twenty years ago. He chewed me out for cleaning my muzzleloader with hot soapy water. Alway gotta use WD 40 or kerosene only.
I would guess he has passed by now. He was a neat old guy.
