Traditions deer hunter .50 cal percussion, Iron sights. I bought it when I was 12. My first gun. While I haven't hunted with it, I have done some exhibition shooting.

It's fun, has a small challenge with the hang fire and the smoke... Different and old school, but fun none the less.

Yeah there is some challenges, there is nothing more frustrating sitting in a deer stand zeroed in on a deer, perfect trigger squeeze and the cap just goes pop and misfires! You might as well stand up and wave

Or when the nut on your powder measure unscrews and drops to 140 grains without you realizing it... Just about shoot your arm off...

Did a night time candle shoot back in 2009. First team to extinguish all ten candles wins... Great event. Hard to do at night with iron sights...
