The wheellock invented by the very end of the 15th century was the first mechanism to offer a practical solution for conceal carry self-defence firearms, but it was the flintlock that gave an effective, easy to conceal pistol to large group of people. This video is about the British boxlock flintlock mechanism.

Well this is my channel and these are my impressions about shooting old and repro blackpowder and cartridge guns. You will find target shooting, hunting, reloading and military history related videos here starring pre 1945 firearms. Since I was a little child I knew I want to be a history teacher. In fact I graduated as one. Later I studied military sciences on university level, and now I am doing my phd in firearms history while I teach military history at the university. That’s my life, my hobby. I hope you’ll enjoy my videos as much I enjoyed making them. Greetings form Hungary, the land of good wines and beautiful women. Oh yes, and please forgive my Hunglish. 😉
