Muzzleloader safety

I was watching the news tonight and saw that two people were shot with muzzleloaders today. One was killed from velva the other is in serious condition. Just a reminder to make sure you have your hammer decocked as I know my muzzleloader does not have a safety and I assume many others do not also.

The one in Velva was a 14 year old boy, according to the news. Take the primer out when you are not in the field, just because they are not high powers people seem to treat them with less caution. Sad to see anyone have an accident, especially a child.
