i have been passively looking for a flintlock pistol to go with my kentucky rifle , i found a land pattern that caught my eve , i think i just wrote the check for it ....er ya , just sealed the envelope , what did i just do ?????????

i did "win" a compatible damascus blade knife with nice tiger stripe maple grip scales that match pretty nice this past weekend at the cowboy shoot in north dakota so i think i was in a weak moment ,   thats my excuse - in stickin to it , weakened moment , 

if it comes as advertised i think i have a set , i will try to post a photo later this summer when the stunned look gets off my face and i feel normal again ,

OK , i just got it and im more than pleased , ill try to get some photos up as soon as i can , it might be a bit , but ........

the wood is beautiful - similar color perhaps a bit darker not seen them together in daylight yet , similar tiger striping and great brass fittings that seem pleasing , 

its maybe not perfect match to my kentucky rifle but really look good together , ive wished the guy that made my rifle would make one of these for me but he has scaled back in older age and will not take on new projects right now , 

thisfits in , it  it fits my taste , im a bit eclectic save for my enfields , only time i like to be as correct as possible to what we are looking at , these are wall hangers that really shoot - like when i was a kid , i miss those freedoms so much , 

had a double barrel damascus shotgun over the living room fireplace , the enfield and the springfield over the fireplace in the basement and the rack in the dining room had modern shotguns and rifles - some were loaded at all times , no one messed but we all knew - unwritten rule do not touch unless necessary or putting to use - then look first
