Gordon's Gun Closet #5: The Musket

59 mins - Published Wed, May 25, 2016 by Gordon Frye and Nancy Frye

This week we take a good long look at the colorful history of the musket. From the earliest “hand gonne” to the good old Brown Bess and Charleville, from Germany to England to the Americas, there’s a lot to talk about. Light your slow match, knap your flint, of course be sure to keep your powder dry, and for supplemental pics and info be sure to visit Gordon’s blog.
