Re: First Flintlock advice

Percussion are not "flint"locks, they do not use a flint and are not legal in the late season.

I have/had a .45 TC Hawken, (2) .50 TC Renegades, and a .50 Lyman Great Plains Hunter (not GP Rifle). I think any of these are good hunting guns. The Lyman had a rough trigger but I smoothed it out where it is very nice now and it is very accurate to 150yd with the optional peep sight. I now use it exclusively and have taken deer, elk, and moose.
