In fairness, I was told that a dirty flash channel will cause misfires and hangfires. I had a filthy flash channel due to, really, stupidity (and assumptions), and perhaps a tiny bit of laziness on my part. Maybe old eyes, too, not seeing how much carbon I had in there.

I'm never had any problem until last winter's "wet incident" and I can't say that I didn't have a dirty flash channel then, either. I have been very lax with that cleaning--mostly because in my pea brain, I was thinking in terms of actual shots through the gun not shot primers, which I've begun doing more rigorously. I counted W209 primers shot and there were 35 of them. Add the Fiocchi's and I shot a lot of primers through the gun without registering that that was fouling my BP. .

When I cleaned that flash channel out, I got enough carbon to fill the whole channel and primer pocket up, and then some!

I think I gotta give the BH209 the benefit of the doubt.

if your ever around where wild sheep are you would have to be dead to not smell them. it will make your nose almost sting. also when your out in the woods and you go by a rock face and you think it smells  like a tomcat that sleeps in your garage, its a bigger cat that a kitty cat. mountain lions smell the same. ive been told bears smell like pigs in a pig yard, dont  know if that correct or not. the thing that stinks the most for me is a huge rattlesnake that has been cut in half with a 12 gauge shotgun. in side was a rat. their are no words for that one.

Cottonmouths smell like a brim bed .. real fishy. (For you Yankees, brim are bluegill, sunfish, warmouths, etc.)

That fishy smell has kept me from being bitten several times.

Yup. everything that shines ,is not always real gold. That's why I recommend ,and stick with , the real thing.But , even with a hang fire , if your doing your job, it should still draw blood.I hang around some hot flinchlock shooters. You won't put these fellows down with a simple hanger.Learn what follow through is. You can have this with a perc. gun also ,so learn how to shoot what you have.Shoot, shoot , shoot, that's how you learn what you have. Try to make troubles, and learn.I'm not putting anyone down, been there myself , down that, that's why I'm trying to help you and save you the heart break. A person don't get that many chance's , it's a shame to waste them.
