Musket Demonstration


Musket Demonstration
Originally uploaded by philippaalan.

This Indian in, full authentic garb, demonstrated how to lock, load, and fire a musket. It was quite an interesting demonstration! He explained that the militia needed to purchase the musket in 3 pieces: the lock, the stock, and the barrel. Thus where we get the phrase when we purchase something, “I bought it lock, stock, and barrel.” Cool huh?!

His garb was fascinating. LOL! The hubster said, “Not only does he need to be secure in his manhood to wear that outfil, he also needs to *secure* his manhood!” Personally, I liked his deerskin boots which went over his knees. They were really cool!
