    I'm getting #6 shot , and some buck n ball really lookin forward to testing it out, I believe the fowlers/smoothies to have surely been the most prevelant grocery getters in Appalachia as well as on the frontier. I want to explore the capabilities and limitations need some challenge in my life. And its about time for a bucket list gun I decided I deserve it.

    Better start with squirrels, an move up to bunnies. All joking aside, no doubt you will be able to collect some game with it. Looking forward to seeing how it goes for ya. Im still keeping an eye out for a single shot 12, to graduate up....or down to.

    If you come across an H&R in 300 Blackout, let me know. I'm still looking for one.

    OK, with all that said, that looks like a SWEET flintlock. The wood looks like a tiger. G-r-o-w-lllll

    Well diesel, I think technically you could do double taps on stuff. They'd just be really slow double taps.
