Aim true !
If you got the white imitation flints from traditions? That's whats in the gun in the photo. i think you sharpen them on a grinder or with a file. Real flints you knap with a pointed tool to put a edge back on when it starts to wear off after use. Not sure if it's needed with the fake flints or not but generally you use a piece of thin lead or leather in the jaws to keep the flint from cracking and moving around.Im back from walmart. Successful in getting patches and lead balls. The flints were 10 bucks for 2. I'll look up sharpening them. I got the gun for 200.00 OTD. He had it listed for 212. He said make it an even 2. I like when i don't have to haggle.
