I finally did it!

Ordered my custom flinter that is! I decided to go with Ron Luckenbill, from Emporium, getting a 54 cal. after a J.P. Beck rifle. Now I just have to wait patiently till its done!

Good for you. DST's? What barrel? Lock? How long a wait?

I heard last week that for a C.Sharps black powder cartridge rifle out of Montana, the wait is 26 months.

Re: I finally did it!

Your, "long wait" comment says something truly meaningful about our, "one-of-a-kind" Pennsylvania Flintlock Season. Only in Pennsylvania do hunters share their enthusiasm for "long waits" concerning reproductions of rifles made in the late 18th. and early 19th.

When finished, these long-awaited, long-guns still only offer the owner, "one-shot-and-done", just as our long ago ancestors experienced whether shooting squirrels, white-tails, turkeys, or Indians.

We flintlockers don't clamor for special opportunities to harvest rutting bucks, but hold fast to those couple of weeks after Christmas to tote a finely tuned flintlock to trudge in long-forgotten foot steps in anticipation of encountering a white-tail, in-range, and broadside! If it doesn't happen, we do not look for better trail cameras, quieter tree stands, or better habitat-specific,scent-blocking camo outfits.

A flintlock remains a single-shot weapon, dependent on sparks from flint striking steel, devoid of water-soaked priming powder at the moment of harvest! And, we continue to cherish those two, mid-winter weeks with like-minded friends and our flintlocks.

Congratulations on choosing to add a custom-made, traditional long rifle to your life. It can be a life-changing decision toward how you approach Pennsylvania's hunting seasons in the future. Don't be shocked if you find yourself studying Track of the Wolf's catalog, visiting Dixon's Gunmakers Fair every summer, and, checking out a rendezvous or two!

Best wishes for an enjoyable season.
