i was just sitting around and figured i would see if anyone has ever had this happen. about 8 years ago i bought a traditions percussion to hunt with in maryland. I was hunting one day and eased over to a cliff that was about 40 feet high and a huge 8 point stood up 30yds away. put the sights on him and poof, the cap went off and nothing else. i put caps on 3 more times and it did the same thing. deer was out of sight and never seen again. at this point i was very mad and put another cap on and shot at a stump that was behind me and...booom, it went off. the next day i was in a stand and had three differnet bucks come right up to me and the gun did the same thing. the cap went off 3 times but nothing else. when i went back home the next day, i did some experimenting and came to figure out that if the gun was pointing anything lees than a 45 degree angle it wouldnt go off. i know everything was properly seated, i always triple check to make sure for safety concerns. my question is...has anyone ever have a gun with the same problem?
