Black Powder Demonstrations
As a black powder expert, Captain Keith Kidd Carson is dedicated to teaching and demonstrating the safe use muzzleloading black powder arms.
Have a blast with one of our black powder demonstrations, which are public interpretive programs featuring living historical Pirates dressed in Pirate Garb, firing blank rounds from reproduction weapons.
The program will help viewers understand the life of Pirates, the garb they wore, and the equipment they used. Demonstrations will show attendees how they are loaded, fired and cleaned.
