Palimbhanger talked me into getting a muzzleloader license to go hunting with him this season. So I called a buddy of mine to see if I could borrow one of his muzzleloaders. Today I shot it, the first time in 20 years that I shot one. It is a TC 50 cal Pennsylvania Hunter. I shoot 80 grains of powder, round balls. It also has a peep sight. We took it to the local range this morning. I shot 4 shots off a rest, there were blocks of wood there, we didn't have sandbags. I think I can kill a deer with it. I didn't know what to expect at first, I thought it would kick hard, but after the first shot I was OK. Here is a pic of the target:

Moss, One of the biggest things when shooting a flintlock is to concentrate and hold on the target. Alot of people will flinch when the "klatch" from the lock happens. As noted above, you better watch out, the addiction is hard to shake.
