Modern In-Line Muzzleloading SafetyMuzzleloaders can be fun, but they take a different skill set to operate than modern firearms, and several rules must be followed to ensure safe operation. Give muzzleloaders a try, just make sure you do so safely. Hang-Fire Situations Sometimes a muzzleloader will not fire immediately when the trigger is pulled. This is known as a “hang-fire” and correcting it requires caution because the gun might fire sometime after the cap or flint created the initial sparks. To correct a hang-fire:
- Keep the gun pointed in a safe direction, preferably downrange.
- Don’t take it anywhere that it could injure someone or damage property if it fires.
- After waiting a minute or so, unload the muzzle using a ball discharger.
