That nice one of me and the boys is my new background. Sam is looking particularly cute in that.

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!

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 :?
