Now that is one cool muzzle loader, that thing must have a 50" barrel. Those reeactment clubs are some cool stuff. Keep the American heritage and dreams rolling.

What was a common musket that would have been found in the homes of the "minutemen"? I figure either the French musket of 1753 or the English Brown Bess. Any thoughts?
