I don’t have a muzzleloader. This will come as no surprise to the TTAG team; I spend less time cleaning my guns than my toilet. The idea of doing all that stuff to make a gun go bang — rather than just chambering a round and pulling the trigger — strikes me as too much work. But those who smoke ’em ’cause they got ’em will tell you . . .
That nothing beats firing a muzzleloader. Something about connecting with the past and the sheer physicality of the thing. So be it. And yes, I’ll get one and write up my [probable] conversion to the joys of the genre.
Meanwhile, got muzzleloader? Which one(s) and why?
