Ed, are you sure hers was a TC Patriot?... I don't believe TC ever made a Patriot in flint. My Blue Book of BP Values states that the Patriot was made in .36 and .45 percussion and discontinued in 1987. No mention of ever being made in flintlock. Maybe it was a custom build?

Traditions builds a flintlock pistol that looks very similar to a Patriot.

Default Getting there

Iíve shot it 4 times now and have learned how to hold it iíve Found that I have to kinda hold it one handed and just touch the Gun with my left hand if I hold it like a 1911 or revolver with more of a 2 hand brace hold it shoots high right
