Buck Horn sights. Thanks! I think I am going to like them, Bob.

FG, I do not disagree about the wood. How can you tell?

Pete, thanks for the heads up about recoil. Won't be a problem... 
I was taught on the family's famously ornery single shot 12 Gauge. 
Snug or die!

I am looking forward to shooting the flintlock. I am thinking about 
going to Alafia Florida Frontiersmen Rendezvous in January.

That may be my first big chance.

Not so much the force of the recoil, but how it hits your cheek, and how the small butt plate digs in. Nowhere near as comfortable as a shotgun.

I am confident I am equal to this challenge. But, I am glad to be warned about the cheek. 
The stock is shaped a bit differently than I have shot before. The butt is also narrower. 
Fore warned is fore armed.

Darn. This makes me want to take the day off and go to the range! bounce
