Electronic Muzzleloader: Initial Scoping Test

I was thinking about building an “Arc-Lock Rifle,” or electrically ignited muzzleloader. However, it turns out that gunpowder is surprisingly insensitive to electrical sparks, as demonstrated by the initial scoping experiment that I documented in this video. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts […]

Beta Pattern Muzzleloader “Tacticool” build

This is another video I made about finishing out a beta-pattern muzzleloader, but this time I took a very different approach. Instead of blueing the steel and making a hardwood stock I powder-coated the metal and made a stock out of tubing wrapped with paracord. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to […]

Beta Pattern Muzzleloader kit build demo

In this video, I demonstrate one method of building a finished muzzleloader using the Beta-pattern “90% kit” from Atomic Rifling and Creative Operations LLC. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of […]

Muzzleloader Accuracy Comparison

This was a test I filmed a while back, comparing the accuracy of one of my home-built muzzleloaders with a Knight inline muzzleloader. Admittedly, I just selected a load at random for this test, so as a measure of accuracy for the two rifles it is not necessarily comprehensive. However, the results were still rather […]

Muzzleloader Overload Testing Follow-up

I made this video mostly to address a couple of recurring comments I was getting on YouTube with regards to my earlier video about muzzleloader overload testing. However, I suppose this discussion of air-gaps and double-charging could still be of some interest on its own merit. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states […]

Destructive Testing of Prototype Muzzleloader

In this video, I subjected a prototype muzzleloader to a series of overload scenarios to see what would happen and determine the margin of safety on the recommended loads. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still […]

Thompson center flintlock Hawkins rifle

Slow Mo footage, of Shooting the Thompson Center Hawkins flintlock rifle, this is my very first gun, shot my first two deer with it, later got a 94 Winchester in 30-30, with all that flash coming out it’s very hard to keep your eyes open, The slow Mo does a good job of showing you the time delay between the hammer fall on till the bullet leaves the barrel.
