PostSubject: Thinking about a Pistol   November 9th 2013, 10:04 pm

I've been wanting a single shot BP Pistol for a while now, I am going the traditional route since my main goal is cheap ammo and light 20-30 grain charges of powder. I've been bidding on gunbroker for the past week and by the time the bidding ends on a pistol with a questionable barrel, I may as well just buy a dang new one and know for sure what I am getting. Seriously, these auctions do not seem to offer a good deal anymore.

But so far I am seriously looking at the Traditions Kentucky pistol to go along with my Kentucky flintlock rifle. My rifle is a flinter, but I want the pistol to be a capper since I mainly shoot sub powders.

Whatcha guys think?

I have thought about a pistol because we cannot carry a center fire pistol during early muzzleloader and I would like to have a quick backup shot.  I need to research this a bit more.

The Ardesa Patriot .50 will also work well for what you intend.

I have a Uberti 1851 conversion with a 7 1/2" barrel, saved on my favorites and look at it everyday. Its a cartridge .38 sp., but I'll be loading it with some BH 209. I'm hoping Santa will surprise me Christmas day.

I had a Lyman version of the Kentucky pistol. It was a lot of fun to shoot, but I was disappointed when the DOW said it couldn't be used for deer hunting.

That T/C Patriot I got from Carlos is sweeeet! If you can find one for $300-$400 in real good shape, I'd recommend it.
