Flint lock sayings or references

There is an old German proverb…

All skill is in vain when an angel pees down the touch-hole of your musket.

Over the years, I've certainly had my unfortunate encounters with angels with bladder problems!

Keep your powder dry Pilgrim!

Common saying, but good words of advice when your life depended upon your flinter.

And as I told my B.I.L. a few years back that had the very same "problem" with his sights shifting..."Always carry a wallking/shooting stick". I watched him whiff on a big doe standing broadside at 40 yards with his flintlock. He cut a stick after that and his next shot at over 60 yards put one in the boiler maker of the very same doe.
