"Ferguson"-type Breech-loading Flintlock Plans

Fer those folks wanting something 'nice', but different from everything from what everyone else has, there's this! Guaranteed when you go to shoot this at the range no one else will have one close too it, but everyone will want to see it!

Fogey; that is very cool, but it possesses one major flaw-- It isn't mine.

Delbert; McAfee is a symbiotic paring of malware and virus, IMO, and it prays upon your computer and your bank account.  Once infected, it is almost impossible to become completely free of the symptoms.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.   James 1:25 (KJV)

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.   James 2:12. (KJV)

Got spoiled using a Mac.
Worms are nigh impossible to get.
(Yes I know an Apple is easier to infect. Just nobody writes malware for them at the same rate they do the windows world.)
Had to relearn all the malware chasing tools when I went PC last year.
Soaking this up like a Parched sponge.

Sorry, Delbert, I'm as computer-security conscious as they come,and I can't find any problems with that page (and all the downloads are clean)!

Kaeto, yeah but you can't make the "real one in a garage (nor my 'shop', as I derisively call my closet -) for that matter! I guess a "home-made" breech-loading pistol or rifle might be a closer or more accurate description.

I always thought that it was called that because it belonged to a "King" family at one time.

     As shown above, isn't true Ferguson style breech loading system (most folks couldn't fabricate that today in their toolshed, 200 years yes - today no)!  (&N Just a simple (but effective -) breech-loading system!
