Kind of Ironic but the Traditions Muzzleloader is leading the industry with their innovation and design not to mention that Tradition Pursuit has the DSS safety system which makes it one of the Safest Muzzleloaders on the market.

DSS (Double Safety System) The Pursuit series of muzzleloaders incorporates 2 safeties to make them one of the safest muzzleloaders available. A cross block trigger safety is built into the trigger guard just like a standard rifle or shotgun safety. The second one is built into the hammer that blocks the firing pin from igniting the primer if the trigger has not been pulled.

I'm researching this further and I will post the results of my findings ASAP.
but so far it looks to me like this Randy wakeman guy is just blowing smoke for his own profit.

Here's a link to a review Randy Wakeman gave on one Traditions Muzzleloader the Evolutiion. I'd like to point out Traditions muzzleloaders are manufactured by Ardesa of Spain the very manufacturer he claims makes unsafe muzzleloaders. YET he makes no mention in his review of the Evolution as to being unsafe or dangerous to use.

It usually Boils down to shooter Error and not Manufacturers defects.

Well His website says it's the "Headquarters for Savage Muzzleloading" <<--click there to see..
So my guess is he's trying to increase his own savage sales with this tactic of attacking the competition, Otherwise there'd be Warnings galore about unsafe Muzzleloaders, Don't ya think?

I shoot mine again for the first time in 2 years. (trying to sight in the scope) I shoot it a good five or six times (then the scope fell off) but the point is that it didnt blow up or crack or anything bad like that. It did kick harder than I remember tho . . . . . . .

Kinda makes the point that most times you get what you pay for. I'll stay with TC or custom with a good quality barrel. I've been around a lot of muzzleloaders over the years and have never seen one come apart with correct loads and sound safety practices utalized.
