Re: Hunting in rain
With my inline (TC Omega), I will still usually keep a sheet of Saran Wrap with me to cover the action in heavier rain just out of paranoia. Odds are, it would be fine without it, but I prefer not to test the theory.
I brought my flintlock out to Colorado for an elk hunt recently, and the erratic weather had me real nervous in even the slightest, spitting rain. I ended up switching up to my inline for the remainder of the hunt, and was much more at ease with each passing cloud.
