Setting off a flintlock musket at Colonial Williamsburg (VIDEOS)

Now in its third year in operation, the flintlock range at the site known to many as the “Disneyland of the Revolutionary War” is still going strong.

As explained in the above video from the NRA, the program allows those 14-years of age and up fire a reproduction Brown Bess musket as well as a traditional Colonial fowling piece, an experience unlike anything you get when visiting a modern range.

The session, which started in 2016 and at the time ran $119, now costs $76 and includes range instructions, ammunition and powder, targets, and safety equipment.

Also, check out the collection of Colonial Williamsburg’s exhibit of military and civilian firearms and weapons, below.
