I know a lot of you guys are TC die hards but.....

Isn't it more cost effective to buy H&R rifles in the caliber you'd like? Or are they not of the same quality. Trying to figure out a way to get single shot with multiple calibers for a reasonable price so the fiance` doesn't get irritated with me for buying to many guns.

If an inline is just like a flintlock why don't you get a flintlock so you can hunt more seasons?

Re: I know a lot of you guys are TC die hards but.....

I think initially, the H&R would be more cost effective. I also think there are a lot more options for the t/c in both the used and aftermarket areas which may equate to lower cost overall.
I can't comment on the quality of the H&R as I've not owned one. I can say I am happy with my Encore.

For me it comes down to:
1: personal preference.
2: availability of calibers and configuration.

Re: I know a lot of you guys are TC die hards but.....

If you are worried about what your fiance thinks now...wait till you get married. It won't be getting any better. Just something to think about.

My thoughts are an H&R costs anywhere from 280-300 bucks each. An Encore barrel runs around 250-275 bucks depending on what you get.

You will still have to buy optics for each one unless you go with open sights.

In the end if you decide you want out you can more easily sell off a barrel or two if you decide. There is always someone looking for another barrel.

If you decide you want to get rid of the H&R the resale will be much less, and the people that would be interested would irritate me from trying to get the price down the last $1 they can. The same ones that try to get you down to 90 cents from a dollar then pay tou with a dollar and want change.

thanks 365. You answered my question. On the plus side she hunts so I can get away with a little bit more, but she just deer hunts and she doesn't understand the "need" for more guns ;-)

Re: I know a lot of you guys are TC die hards but.....

I have a few h&r s and like them just fine. I got an encore 2 yrs ago. Yes prices are close when looking at T/ C barrel / H&R rifle, To me the biggest advantages of the encore is not having to go to a FFL to add a caliber. If I want a tc caliber it shows up on my porch 3 days later. Other than that the biggest difference to me is mostly visual and in the trigger pull.
