2 guns?

I've notice a few carry two guns when flintlock hunting. How many of you do this?

Re: 2 guns?

Do you mean carrying a flintlock and pistol for self defense or a flintlock rifle and flintlock pistol?

You're the same dumb pilgrim that I been hearin' for twenty days, and smellin' for three!

Re: 2 guns?

I think he means two FL rifles in case of a needed 2nd shot or failure of one to fire, and my answer is no I don't.

Re: 2 guns?

In PA it's legal to carry two. I carry a short carbine length 21-24" just because I don't want to carry any more than I need to. Carrying a long barreled gun is just not something I like to carry. I never felt underguned and can hit just fine out to 100 yards.

I never saw anyone that carried two flinters and 1 good shot was all I ever needed. I did have to shoot one twice last year when it was down but not out but that was the first time in many years.

Re: 2 guns?

I carry two when I'm hunting out of a stand or when stationary on the ground. Only 1 when I still hunting or tracking.

The 2nd gun is a CVA Hawken Pistol with a 12 inch barrel. I have a belt holster for when I'm moving but usually take it out and lay it on my right side when I get to where I'm going. That's for those ones that sneak up and I can't turn to shoot with the long gun. It's pretty accurate too! I can put 3 into a softball sized circle at 30 yds.

I think it's pretty cool to carry too!

Re: 2 guns?

I carry a 2nd in the truck only.Just in case something breaks (mainspring,frizzen spring,etc) and I don't have to drive home to get another gun.
Someone must really be confident about their shooting to carry 2 muzzy in the field.
Wonder if someone ever duct taped them together!

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: 2 guns?

I hunted with a fella that carried 2 rifles on post for drives. He needed 6 or 7. I walk to much to be carrying 2 long guns. I suppose it's good for the arms carrying them around!! Lol!
