Mussleloader misfire question.

671 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  whitedog
People who wear glases can testify to this, but when you come in from a hunt on a cold day, us folks wearing glasses have a problem with our glases fogging up. It happens with many materials when they come in from cold weather into a warm home, they get condensation from the temp change.

My question is this, has anyone here had problems with a misfire from their fire stick after bringing a mussleloader in from the cold and back hunting over after a few times? I've always tried to leave my gun out in the cold during mussloading, fearful of condensation that could cause a misfire. Am I being paranoid?

I found if you have a gun case that has the foam linner, it will keep you ML cold for a while if it's cold. Condensation is ML worse enemy I think. I leave mine outside { car trunk, truck, garage, ect. }
I have put a little 3f and 4f under the nipple also. Just before you go out and would like to check on things, pull the nipple off and see if there is a little power in the flash hole and look into the nipple hole to make sure it's clear. That should help.
