Re: t c firestorm

Have one and love it. Easy to clean and groups great for me with 80 gr 3f and .245 PB aerotips. Still have yet to kill a deer with it in a couple years. 0-1 this year.

Someday will get a traditional gun, but the firestorm is a great hunting tool. (in the right hands I guess)

Re: t c firestorm

I have the TC FireStorm in Nickel and Synthetic, as well as most of the guys I muzzy hunt with. I can't say enough good things about them.

Re: t c firestorm

I owned a TC Firestorm for about 3 years. A well built flinter!!

If it would be offered in the same 1-66 bbl that they used with the now discontinued TC PA Hunter...then you'd have sumpin. I just couldn't get that "inbetween twist" 1-48 bbl shoot to meet my expectations. Another negative...there are no Firestorm replacement or drop-in bbls other than the 1-48.

For a Factory flinter...i would opt for a Lyman Great Plains Rifle. Can get 1-60 or 1-32 bbls which are both outstanding for either rb's(1-60) or modern day conicals(1-32). Plus the GPR has 2 triggers.

Re: t c firestorm

It would be better if it had two triggers.

Re: t c firestorm

BTW, trigger tension is a little tight on the FS but at the range isn't a big deal if you pull really slow and even. Ignition is just about instant for me.

Maybe the tight trigger is why I missed a monster last week being a quick shot at 40 yds. Not sure if I'll ever know how I missed that first shot at a deer, but it wasn't the gun's fault I'm sure

Re: t c firestorm

Have had my FS for 6 or 7 years now. Love it. Factory trigger was measured around 8-9 lbs. Had my smith work it to 3 lbs, couldnt be happier with it.

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. <span style="font-style: italic">3 John 1:4</span>
