    Have seen these at my local Wallyworld for about $55. Being completely new to BP, I want something reasonably functional that I don't have to sink a lot of money into. Anyone with experience with these li'l rifles? If so, are they worth a damn?

    They're okay, but for 40.00 dollars more, you can get a staghorn inline. And I believe with the 209 shotgun primer also. A heck of a lot more reliable and better accuracy. just my 2 cents worth

    JK,

    Is this gun for deer, target, or what? I'm assuming for deer, so I'll tell you the gun is fine as long as you don't expect to drop a ten pointer at 100 yards. They are good guns for 30-40 yard shots and even a little farther. If you buy the gun, be sure to take it to the range and find out how it will perform at 50 yards. Also, you'll want to experiment with loads and projectiles. I still shoot my .50 cal T/C Hawken with 100 gr of powder and a ball 'n' patch. Does a fine job for me.

    I do have to agree with Tommy that a couple of twenties more will let you reach out and touch at greater distance.
