Hey guys... ease up on the "newbie" a bit. =)

(Welcome, friend.)

How's he supposed to know how "hot & bothered" some become when debating what is & isn't a "primitive" rifle? =)

Yea and anyway OLD TIMER is using my old inline 50 caliber rifle with a scope and all. He has a cataract and can not see to shoot his bows or primitive rifles anymore.

I use a percussion cap, TC Hawken .50 my dad made probably 25 years or so ago and I love it, shoots perfectly. I havent killed a deer with it yet though...

I still so not own an inline. I hunt with a TC New Englander and a TC Grey Hawk, black powder, and lead balls but they are called maxi balls. After several misses due mainly not to be able to pick out holes in thick cover I did scope both.
