blackpowder. Isn't that like guys asking which black powder is better, 2f - 3f, what size patches are best, what lubes are best?? What size of ball. 490-495 - 530-535?

What flints are the best to use, whats the best way to prime the pan, whats the best way to keep debris/moisture away from the pan charge?

yes, maybe, kinda???? i guess in "my" mind, bp is bp, ignition isn't a problem, it all goes off. clean up, accuracy, some difference, though i have never seen much difference. roundball is a roundball, vary the patch thickness if its too loose or tight. flints, english of course. maybe its just all the "unknown" about inlines to me that seem to make it more complex. sooooo, go ahead, you can beat me up now! ha ha!

I own 2 flints, 2 inlines and a cap...Here is what I think. If I wanted I could put a scope on my cap gun, can't on my flints. Flint guns are not as shooter friendly as say a inline or cap gun. Took me a lot of practice to get good with my flint guns. My inlines and cap were very much like sighting in a center fire rifle. No hang fires or flinching at the hammer fall. Hunting is about sport and a flint only season after all other seasons make it sporty! I love the early season it fills the big hole in my freezer every fall and I use a inline. I use my inlines during regular rifle season and have killed 5 legal bucks and several does with them. So I guess what I'm trying to say is everything has it's place! And it's up to the hunter to make the most of it!

PA is the last state to allow anything, because it always had the most hunters.
Primitive season came in when PA had some one million hunters. And those hunters were very happy to get extra time to hunt deer.

And it's tough, when the precedent has been established. At least 20% would be against the change, just because it would mean a change.

keep in mind we are all hunters. what we hunt with should not matter breaking us into little groups and bashing each around makes us weak i enjoy my flint but if my buddy shots an inline and enjoys it ...well thats ok with me.

But let him shoot it in the early season, not the flint season.

I may wish to shoot a bow, that doesn't mean we should let my buddy out with a 458 Win Mag in archery.

Some of us actually forego some seasons conserving our resources and time off for the late season. I do not want to be out with Pa machine guns in the woods after Christmas. Nor do I wish that during archery.

This "anything that floats your boat" attitude would have folks shooting machine guns and artillery for small game and through out the seasons.
