Island nimrods assembled at the Martha's Vineyard Rod and Gun Club Sunday to take part in the club's 12th annual black powder shoot. The competition provided a prelude to the Massachusetts black powder deer hunting season that began Monday, December 12 and ends December 31. The weaponry included flint lock rifles, percussion cap rifles and ultra modern in-line rifles with scopes. Although the ignition systems varied from exposed stone to integrated shotgun shell primers, the rifles shared one thing in common, they only provided the shooter with one shot. In this video, Dick Carlson of Oak Bluffs, competition chairman, explains the finer points of a Thompson Center flint lock rifle and takes his best shot.
