Happy MLK

I have the day off today.

I saw this gun in my Facebook feed this morning. This was some serious,high tech,tactical, goodness back in the day.

You had to be in some bad mojo if you were carrying this around. It's an open pan flintlock. There would be loose black powder in that pan as you walked around.

--Very collectible.

But the pan would be closed if you were carrying it, so it would be perfectly safe, right?
I like the trigger placement. (And people complain about bullpup triggers.)

Well if we push the weapons light much further back in time, I guess the Ogg's flaming stick might be the first.
I am going to stick with the idea that flame and black powder should not be close together.
