    Denny Ducet sharing possibles bag and accoutrements for the journey into traditional muzzleloading. We discuss possibles bags, powder horns, tool pouches, powder measures, some blades/knives, and a few other things I have learned on the way. Article on that journey is here: dennyducet.blogspot.com/2017/02/flint-steel-and-blackpowder.html

My friends think i'm crazy to hunt with an old heavy Hawken rifle, i love keeping the old traditions alive! That's a beautiful possibles bag! I've got an old fringed brain tanned bag i love, handy for pistol shooting as well! Never knew about a breech scraper! Going to make one! Those antler measures are great! Thanks for sharing!

Nice layout..! It definitely can be a process choosing/making your gear and accouterments. That's part of the fun.. making the gear my own. I'm subbed & greeting from a fellow Flathead black powder enthusiast.! Thanks for the video...

Very good video, but I do have some advice about your knives if you truly want to be period correct. Handles of knives of the eighteenth century were pinned and not riveted. Riveted are more nineteenth century, your knives are good ones and if being period correct for the eighteenth century isn't a concern, great.

The only things I've BOUGHT for my shooting gear is tools and raw materials. I either made or modified everything else. Even my rifle has a small amount of reworking I've done(coned the muzzle, to eliminate the need for a short starter, and inletted a sideplate that I made myself. The sideplate that came with the gun was only sitting on TOP of the stock, held there by the lockplate screws, and I didn't like the look of it anyway!)

*Brass or Derlin {plastic} ram-rod and/or brass rod short starter MAY NOT be period correct. However, these do work well without breaking and allowing entry of split or splintered rods into loader's hand. Effectively, period correct wood rods can inflict serious period correct hand injuries. Such period correct hand injuries can have lifelong consequences. Do consider Derlin {plastic} or brass rods... or a "better than hickory" wooden rod made of the more durable native arrow-wood/ "Vibernum Dentatum". **https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viburnum_dentatum*

If you learn to PROPERLY use a wooden ramrod, you won't have problems. The most common mistake in using one is holding it too high above the muzzle when trying to seat a ball, which invites the rod to move sideways and snap. Hold the rod ONLY a FEW INCHES above the muzzle, and apply steady downward pressure, sliding the grip up the rod, again only a few inches each time, as the ball goes down.

Nice job, however becarefull using brass pines to retain end plugs also no epoxy you are building a pipe bomb should a spark ever get into the horn.

That's why you NEVER load the weapon directly from the horn. ALWAYS use a powder measure, and plug the horn BEFORE loading

if ever the powder explodes you have bone shrapnel that will do damage. the wood caps where sealed with bees wax and depending on the size normally 4 pins that way if it ever goes boom is blows the cap off and not your side. other than that nice vid.

Just an observation. The majority of guns I have seen with damaged barrels have been from the use of a short starter. Someone doesn't pay attention, and forget to ram the ball home, resulting in a bulged or burst barrel. Until the ball is seated, the barrel is a pipe bomb.

I think the bag you are referring to would be called a haver sack. Heck even a women's pocketbook could be called a possibles bag because we know that anything just might possible be in there.

Have just recently gotten bit by the flintlock bug. I am currently waiting on a custom build which will represent a 1750's-1770's rifle in 45cal. Specifics on style of build have not been determined as of yet as I have a long wait, and time to decide. Like you, I come from an LEO and SWAT background. Going to classes, or conferences every year like OTOA, the high speed low drag, cool guy - tier 1 gear and -operators- can get annoying and tiresome. As much as I love attending 'tactical' classes to further my training and knowledge -and- my modern firearms, there IS something much more enjoyable and calming with these old style rifles. They're works of art that are just as pleasing to look at as they are to shoot. I really enjoy your channel and am anxiously awaiting my own personal flintlock rifle. This video really helped me make a list of essentials that I will need. Stay safe.

I prefer to use a piece of deer antler tip to resharpen my flint, you just run it over the underside of your flint and it'll sharpen just fine. I keep mine tied off with my vent pick and brush.

Really enjoyed this great video, thanks for going to the trouble. Im brand new and dont have a rifle yet, Im trying to decide which. I got here by watching your "montana" video which is perfect to watch before this one. You answered tons of questions for someone new, you are doing great work and I can see you care about this a lot. Im a left handed shooter and noticed in the last seconds that you have a left shooter there. Instead of buying a left-handed rifle, can i assume a right handed rifle can be safely shot without getting a face full of hot powder?

@cvcoco New Jersey has a governor, and federal/state "representatives" just as stupid as yours! In this state, there is no such thing as a "replica" gun(that's what MOST states call a bp gun, and DON"T class them as firearms); here, anything that shoots is a "firearm", even NERF guns!

@cvcoco MINUTES between shots? You overestimate. I can load my rifle in 20-30 SECONDS. As far as being able to vary the charge with modern propellants, well, you can't have everything

denny, good to see you getting more involved with trad ml's! you can easily use a good 3f down the tube and in the pan, there is absolutely no need for a woodsman to use 4f or null b, one horn does it all. ditto's for the ball starter, not needed once you work up a good load - ball, patch and lube. ya done great with that buff horn, really nice lookin'! if ya put one leg of a powder horn strap's bx cable staple in a vise, and get it cherry red with a propane torch, you can twist the other leg twice and make a nice "period correct" spiral to the middle flat section. ;)

@Denny Ducet The problem with TOW is that, in their catalog, they use all kinds of small stuff, like tools, as "filler" on unrelated pages. You have to really LOOK for things like the screwdriver

Just getting into this myself and enjoy watching your journey. I just ordered a rifle by Don Bruton, hope to get it by Christmas. I've found myself wanting to leave the modern firearms at home and bring the flinter to the range when I have opportunity to shoot.

He keeps to himself and is fairly private. Well known in the northwest he made the very fine english rifle you see in the spring shooting video and it has shown up in other videos here. He also made the poor boy .50 you see the Red Beard shoot. The builders initials are "TM".
