There's quite a few of me for once :o including one of me on my own :S
And you can see how badly my armour was fitting that day... it doesn't even look like my breastplate is attached to me... just hovvering in front of me :?
It's been adjusted this week, so should be better now! :D

Great pics though!

Was Sir cheating with a brace of 1740's heavy-bob pistols and the most lovely shaped M1696 fusil (resplendent with it's cows foot stock)

Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

Well that was a 'black powder through the ages' display, so no cheating.

You are about there with the musket, but a bit off on the pistols, which arent a pair.

I think one is french dragoon pistol of about 1715 and the other is a great big potsdam, about half as big again.

Enough to give me barrel envy at any rate then :wink:

I have a brace of Elliots with the tine 9" barrels, and I must remember to change the flint before I use them this weekend....!!!

Yup, just noticed the bands on the end of the stock.

Not a fan of early French pistols (but they are better than the late), but I do like the muskets

The german cavalry pistol is a 1737 Potzdam; so nearly right with that.

The french musket is indeed 1690s and is a thing of absolute beauty.
It's light, fits well into the shoulder, fires reliably. Lovely.

And it was a very good one, so big thanks there.

You could have had a stock though - the horse tail bandage (used) wasn;t the best stock in the world :?
