Re: Suggest A First Flintlock for Me
I strongly suggest a trip to Dixon's Muzzleloader Shop since you live in Berks County. I was there yesterday, and as always Chuck and Greg were busy answering questions, finding stock for the several customers in the shop, and writing up sales. If you can, go on a weekday (they're closed on Wed.), and Greg or Chuck will spend as much time as you need answering any and all questions you might have.
The shop has a wide selection of Lymans, and I think, Pederosolis. And, if you look up, the ceiling is draped with displayed custom rifles and smoothbores. I never have difficulty coming up with an excuse to make the 35 minute drive. Yesterday, it was the need for a bolster screw that hit the shop floor and vanished into thin air! That two dollar item ending up costing me around thirty, but that is the wonderful thing about Dixon's, money never has a chance to burn any holes in pockets!
