Ok. This is going to be fun. Every flintlock shooter out there needs a little help with things to blame misses on....hunting or target shooting misses. Let's list 'em here!!! The only rule is that you may only list one excuse per post.....

Wedge drifted out of escutchon and barrel staple causing unexpected barrel harmonics resulting in me missing a sure kill shot on a Boone and Crocket Elk. I'll stop now as I have so many of these excuses that I don't want to give all of them away.

This is a real excuse. The deer threw off my timing--he was supposed to keep moving when he went behind the tree not stop.
