    If you decide to look at used guns be sure to check the bores very carefully. Many of the used rifles were never cleaned properly after being shot. Worse many shooters believed the myth that the fake powders were non corrosive when actually they are harder on a bore than the real stuff.

    Yeah, I am a bit more leery of buying a used black powder weapon than I am a used modern firearm, because improper maintenance can cause a lot of issues. But if I can find a great deal on one that has been well cared for, I won't rule it out.

    Sky Pilot, thanks for the input, I hadn't heard of the Log Cabin Shop before, I might need to check that out, too bad it is on the opposite corner of the state from where I am usually running around.

    The Log Cabin is a neat place, well worth the road trip. I grew up in that area.

    I have a few really good friends who grew up in that area, I make it up there every now and again for some shooting and bonfires and stuff, I'll have to include it in my next trip, right after my Fin Feather and Fur visit.

    Have 7 muzzleloaders........2 percussion and 5 flintlocks all custom made. I've been hunting with my flintlock smoothbores and rifles for the last 21 years. They are a thing of beauty and to bring down game in the field and forest with either shot or a patch round ball is always an amazing thing, IMO.
    I've also been a NRA Cert. Muzzleloading Instructor, Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun this my 20th year. True they can be costly depending on the quality you desire.....my last rifle purchased 5 yrs. ago cost me 4K......and I love it still.

    A good place to look at mostly quality flintlocks just to drool, and get an idea of prices is here:

    http://www.trackofthewolf.com/Catego...81&styleID=280

    The page is ever changing, and they have pages for percussion also. Not to mention this is a great source of BP related supplies.

    Both my flintlock rifles cost about 2K each and were bought directly from gunsmiths.
