Congratulations. Hope to get a Rio next year or the following. I asked the guy at the gun shop to look for a double barreled flint lock for me.

Congratulations! It's awesome to see a bird taken with an old sidelock. I'm going to try my Cva gobbler 12 this season.

Very nice, picture and bird.  Still have not seen  one flopping as the smoke clears, but I am trying.
