M is for Muzzleloader............
Just look at the fancy work on this old muzzle loader.
I would never dare fire this old weapon - way too much kick back for me.
My boys both use new, modern day muzzle loaders, which are fine looking pieces also.
But the old ones always catch my eye.
The delicate details on them sometimes are quite amazing considering their jobs.
And that hammer with it's graceful curves doesn't look like it belongs on a gun.
The wood on this one isn't too fancy, but on some of these weapons the stocks are really works of art too.
Sometimes you find beauty where you least expect it.
