Sometimes its ok to brag about your kids.  Sometimes.  Anyway, in addition to modern firearms my two boys each own a Pietta 1851 Navy and a Remington 5.5 apiece.  They can do shots with those pistols like what isnt even supposed to happen.  Consistent long shots that I would have to see to believe.  Five or six petal clover leaves in the black at 75 + yards, one hand unsupported and then swap out or reload and do it again.

Tonight I again acknowledged their ability with those (of which they are comfortably aware) and ask one of them if he considered himself an expert.  He looked at me sort of funny and said I would NEVER consider myself an expert.  How arrogant would that be?  

I said never mind, it was just a trick question and that he had given the correct answer.

"Black powder firearms and shooting black powder firearms." That covers a lot of territory! I guess I still will consider myself as "moderate" even though I do have several cap and ball, flintlock, and black powder cartridge rifles, revolvers, and pistols.
