Marry Christmas to Me!!!

My wife gave me a $500 dollar spending limit for a muzzleloader. I have shot one but never hunted with one. I need some ideas for a good loader with all the trimmings (powder, flint, balls, patches, etc.) Second where is a good place to go get set up?

Re: Marry Christmas to Me!!!

I would first decide do you want a inline or a flintlock.

From your question it looks like your leaning to a flintlock.

Layman makes a nice gun and won't break your budget and leave you money for all the extras.

It sounds like you're enjoying your new smokepole.


Midsouth Shooter Supply has some of the best online prices for flintlocks. I generally prefer to support local shops but it can be hard to find muzzle-loaders in stock this time of year.

Re: Marry Christmas to Me!!!

I just got a Lyman Deerstalker last month, I think it shoots better than my TC Firestorm did. I really like it. I Paid 389.95 for it.

Re: Marry Christmas to Me!!!

I have a lyman GPR 50 cal and it shoots real good. I can hit at 100 yards with it with fibre optic sights. Thing I never thought about until this year is a crossbow. First day of inline I had two buck walk right up to me. I mean within 30 feet. The second buck had one thick set of horns. Where they met his skull they were about as big around as 1 1/2 pipe. First time I ever even thought about wanting a crossbow. First time I ever saw a buck and prayed for a doe instead. Never did see a doe the whole inline season. First year I got my doe liscense in years. I figured it won't hurt if I shoot one doe. It has been a long time since I shot a deer and I swallowed my pride for the chance at a little V. Don't know if I remember what it tastes like.

You canít get them if you ainít in the woods!!

If you're looking for an inline, everyone I know that has one, loves their TC Omega. I have also heard great things about the Encores.

Re: Marry Christmas to Me!!!

the great plains will run a little more then 500 but is worth the money the trade gun is alittle less and is still worth the money its up to you on which one you want the trimmings or extras can come later
