Traditional Flintlock Rifle Workshop

Are you a fan of historic blackpowder firearms? Ever want to learn how to build your own? Here's you chance to do just that. The Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center is offering a work shop March 7-12, 2010: Traditional Flintlock Rifle Workshop.

No prior experience is necessary. Instruction and kits will be provided by rifle builder Troy Roope of Stonewall Creek Outfitters. Kits are also available from Jim Chambers Flintlocks.

The custom rifle you build and some tools from the workshop are yours to keep.

The class size is small with lots of instructor time - 6 to 1 student/teacher ratio. Meals and lodging provided as part of this package. You can visit Troy's website at The cost is $1,500.
