View Full Version : Single Shot ML pistol

Forgive me for my ignorance, I can NOT remember the manufacturer of the pistol.
Its a sinlge shot .50 cal pistol, saw it at the local Bass Pro here in St. Charles, MO. The blue barrel is like $209, and the stainless is $219.
I was looking at picking up a friends BP revolver, but this single shot has a longer barrel.
I am interested in the pistol for deer ML season, something I can put in a holster and walk around, not lugging the bow or the 30-06.
Anyone have one or know of what I am talking about? The fit/finish seemed OK at best, but I liked the longer barrel, and its in-line with the 209 cap, which could be nice.

THe pistol you looked at is proably the Traditions Firearms .50cal and I think it's called Buckhorn. ###Here's a link hope it works, ###Traditions Inline Pistol (http://www.traditionsfirearms.com/eShop/10Browse.asp?Category=Muzzleloaders%3A+Buckhunter+ In%2DLine+Pistols)
I think I saw somewhere a barrel for the T/C Encore pistol for .50 cal BP also. ###Not quite sure where though. ###If the above link doesn't work try this ###

Better check your game laws on the legallity of muzzle loading pistols for hunting. They're illegal in Ohio because they're not powerful enough for game. They generally don't have the capability to fire heavy enough charges safely.

Yeah, thats it. I have been told, but need to make sure, that I can even use the 6 shot revolver ML here in MO, as long as its .44 cal or bigger. I THINK, not sure yet, but will find out. I am talking about using it during the ML season.
I am interested like I said as I want something I can holster and walk around with without lugging something big around.
If I get it, I guess I will have to publish a report here, eh?

Definitely wanna check that one, Hucklburry.
California and North Carolina also prohibit using the ML pistols for big game. ###Not completely ### ### ### ### ### ### ### ### ### ###sure on CA, but NC doesn't even allow you to carry one as a follow-up gun. ###Long guns only.
The front-stuffer pistols sure are a blast to shoot, though.

Well I looked it up in the MO wildlife code, it says:
"with a muzzleloading or cap and ball firearm not capable of loading from the breach not smaller than .40 caliber and capable of firing only a single projectile at one discharge."
It says nothing about the muzzle loader having to be a certain length or that it has to be a rifle.
It does say that a pistol during firearms season has to fire centerfire ammo, but that is in a different season. It never exempts the ML pistol.
I understand my range is like 50 yds tops (assuming I am accurate that far) but that is fine, the areas I hunt that is plenty.
