Buying Used Muzzleloading Guns provides practical information on how to properly examine and evaluate replica muzzleloading guns of all types based on the author's half-century of hunting experiences.
Over 50 years of owning, shooting and hunting a wide variety of game with replica and modern muzzleloading guns of all types has provided author Wm. Hovey Smith with a unique body of experiences to used in evaluating muzzleloading rifles, hanguns and smoothbores. These guns have been pushed to unusual levels as he has taken swan with flintlock muskets, Cape buffalo with double barreled in-line rifles, hogs with double-barreled pistols with no rear sights, turkey with a blunderbuss and deer with muzzleloading revolvers, smoothbores, single-shot pistols as well as traditional and original rifles. Using these experiences he offers candid comments about the values of these guns for display, recreational or hunting purposes. With no ties to any manufacturer, he gives each gun "a fair shake" and with equal candor discusses the guns' positive and negative attributes.
About the author
Wm. Hovey Smith is a Professional Geologist and is the author of 15 books. In recent years he has been focused on outdoor titles and "Buying Used Muzzleloading Guns" is the second of eight muzzleloading E-books that will be published in 2013. His half-century of hunting with muzzleloading guns has taken him on hunts throughout North America with occasional trips to Europe and Africa. He has always been more interested in trying out different guns on different game and any year might find him shooting swan in North Carolina with a flintlock fowler, taking a turkey with a blunderbuss and bagging a deer with a muzzleloading revolver with an outrageously long barrel. This opportunity to hunt with a large number of different types of guns provides him with an unusual opportunity to evaluate them from the point of view of their actual performance in the field and this is the information that is shared in this book.
