Re: Muzzle-Loader Question
It all depends on the maker and the quality. Do you not want to keep it as a reminder of your Grandfather?
Muzzle loaders are fun to shoot, but there is a pretty good secondary market for them. Look on Guns America for guns like yours for an idea on value.
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that. Shane

We recall the case of the Shoshone war band which showed up complete with one 30-30 rifle per man the week after Pearl Harbor, and simply wanted to have the enemy pointed out to them. "We hear there's a war going on and we want to go fight it." Jeff Cooper
