    Traditions Nitro wizbang muzzle loader

    The latest greatest uptodatus wizbang muzzle loader .
    If'n ya'll are muzzle loader challenged this might be right up your ally. The bullet loads from the muzzle and sits on a shelf. You break the rifle open and insert the "FireStick" full of powder. Insert a primer and you are ready.
    They must think they are really clever coming up with something this new. Harry Pope was doing that back in the late 1800s.
    I am reasonably sure that these are not legal in Indiana. Not sure about other states.
    I may get one and slide an arrow down and call it a crossbow.

    That's funny. What ever is legal for whom ever wants one. I just wish more traditional muzzle loaders were made with a modern rate of twist. The only company that does is Lyman and they want an arm and a leg for it.

    Missouri law states that the muzzle loader must be loaded from the muzzle, and I take that to mean in the traditional sense...powder and projectile. I dont like the idea simply because I like to vary loads using loose powder and it looks like the Firesticks are preloaded, and are not reusable. Seems to be a solution in search of a problem.

    Got to come up with some kind of schtick to keep selling to an ever decreasing number of hunters. Saw a TV ad last night for a compound bow where you adjust the cams side to side to get better arrow flight. Again, a solution in search of a problem.
