Weapons that Won the West: Part 7
By D. R. King, High River, Alta.

‘In past pages we have discussed a number of various old-time shoulder and hand guns, some dating back a century or more. Very little consideration was given to the all-important accessories which were absolutely necessary to shooting in that day and age. The photo (above) shows a few of these much-needed items, including powder flasks, shot pouch, flints and percussion caps, bullet mold and balls cast from it.’
