Those who think the electronic ignition muzzleloader is illegal need to check the hunting guide.

If you'll kindly see page 14 and rule number 11.

11. On WMA's and PHA's all guns must be unloaded while being transported. A muzzleloader is considered to be unloaded if the cap is removed from the nipple or THE BATTERY removed from an ELECTRONIC firing system.

Let me ask you this.....Would you load your ML with a fresh cap on the breach and the safety "on"? I know I wouldn't.

I wouldn't get a warm fuzzy about packin' bullet and powder down the barrel of a gun which operates off a ciruit board (I'm guessing not made in the USA) with the battery connected with the safety on....

nah, I wouldn't have one, legal or not.

The question I'd like an answer to is this: Has anyone bought one? How does it shoot? How hard is it to operate? How easy to clean?

You guys who want flintlocks to be the only legal muzzleloaders probably also want longbows to be the only legal archery equipment! I imagine there were some 'purists' who carped about recurved bows when they first came out. Just use what you're comfortable with, and let everyone else do the same.

But again... does anybody OWN one? If so, please tell us about it!

Recurves have been out for about 2800 years. Not sure if they were as concerned about being "purists" then.

I'm not interested in owning one. I'm not against new technology. I believe that they should be legal to hunt with during MZ season. The hunter still has to set the gun up, (choose the type and quantity of powder, the type and weight of projectile, etc...). The hunter still has to do all the work to set up in a place where he can get a shot at a deer. He still has to load the MZ down the barrel. He still has to aim and pull the trigger correctly in order to hit the target. He still has to reload down the barrel. I don't see where electronic ignition offers any advantage over what I am doing now.
Many people believe that the way something was always done is always the right way. I believe these people have to hate power steering, power brakes, radio, CD, or even air conditioning on their cars. After all, the original car didn't have those things. How dare they defile the original intent of the automobile.

I wouldn't want to trust the electronic ignition - for both reliability and safety.

Well, the test is in. I bought one. I like it. It does seem to be easier to clean, and it's very accurate. I used it in the muzzleloader season last week. At the range, it was dead on at 100yds, with 100 gr Pyrodex pellets, and a Hornady 250 gr sabot bullet. Didn't see a shooter buck, but I did slay a doe from 135 yds across a beanfield. I had good rest - leaning against a huge oak. I thought they were only about 100 yds away, so I shot. Got her about 2-3 inches lower than I intended, but still hit both lungs and the heart. She went down after running 100 yds. I stepped off the shot at 132 yds, and the next day I brought out the laser rangefinder, and it said 135. Next time I decide to hunt across a beanfield, I'll make sure I check the distances BEFORE I shoot deer, especially with a muzzleloader. It hasn't been rainy or moist yet, so it hasn't had a full test of the ignition system, but so far, no misfires or slowfires - it's instantaneous, just like a regular rifle. I like it a lot. But if I do find problems with it in the future, I'll post them here for all to see.
