Gunmaker's fair at Dixon's Muzzleloading shop in Kempton Pa.

My Dad has been into muzzleloading shooting and hunting since the '70's.  I've been into it since I started hunting way back in 1980.  Over the years we've been going to Dixon's shop for supplies and black powder gear.  They have been putting on a gunmaker's fair for a few years now.  This is the first time we've gotten out there for it.  It was a pretty cool thing.  They had displays of all sorts of antique firearms, supplies, knives and all sorts of other stuff.  They had a blacksmith there and we even got to see them making and rifiling black powder barrels.  Really interesting stuff.

I even played around with some video for the first time.  Here's a couple short vids loading and firing a reproduction 19th century cannon.
