Re: need some advise og a getting a PA longrifle
Geesh. You are about an hour (tops) from Dixon's muzzleloader shop and the gun maker's fair is the 29th to 31. Nearly all the major players in building longrifles will be there. Go drool, take notes, see if you want a particular style, and how much fancy you want on it. Frankly I have seen custom guns covered with German Sliver inlays and furniture with excessive engraving and for $8,500.00, I sure wouldn't take it into the woods. An heirloom is nice, but don't get something so fancy that you will hesitate using it. I figure that a plainer Lancaster style or a schimmel style is just right for hunting. Go look and learn before you plunk down your hard earned $.
