I'm carrying my ol' CVA Stag Horn yet again, if it wasn't good luck I would hang it on the wall and buy a T/C Triumph. Even if I haven't seen a deer in weeks I can take that ol' girl out and shoot a deer in the first few hours, weird but I'm not complaining. It's pretty accurate too it will put three shots touching at 100 yards, the only thing I don't like about it is it's open breech design and how much of a pain it is to clean.

Buckshot, PA requires flint patched round ball, Ohio allows anything. You always need options!

Just kidding HM, I own three myself. You just can't have two many guns. Ever seen a TC New Englander? That was My first MZ, short round barrel, single trigger it is a good shooting MZ, I also have a knight disc that the wife uses when she goes.

Buckshot i know the TC rifle you are talking about. I think I'm going to build one more flintlock. I would like it to weigh around 7 lbs so a 1/2 stock in 54 cal with a 15/16" barrel should cut the weight down. That Hawken I built weighs around 9-10 lbs and is not much fun to carry anymore. I've been on line looking for parts and supplies, maybe a Christmas present????
