Yep will do GTK , found a .45 as well . Just waiting to see if we can close a deal . Will be kinda funny shooting with the small bores as I'm used to medium and big bore guns.

How about 8 Bore or a .75 Musket or a .62....big enough to qualify as a big bore JB ?

Here are some pics of the newest toy.

These are only 2 of my collection ranging from 32 cal capper to 54 cal flinters, and a couple of caplock wheel guns, and a 45 flinter pistol in the making.

Beautiful gun JB !
We can own any muzzleloader ever manufactured , they just have restrictions on certain CF's.
Only thing with the double barrelled guns is that I can buy 2 or 3 single barrel guns for the price of a DB.

My CF's collect dust as I only use the muzzle loaders for hunting , it is much more gratifying harvesting an animal with them smokers !
