I use a TC Omega and LOVE it. They don't make them any more but sometimes you can find them on the Trading Post Forum.

What's not to love about this beauty?----SS

It's nice to see people still shooting MZs they have had for years. Unlike what some companies want us to believe, they are NOT disposable rifles that you replace every 3 to 4 years.

One lesson I learned is that as CVA furniture goes, if you want camo, just rattlecan the cheaper black stock yourself. The extra money you spend on a camo stock isn't worth it. It will start rubbing off in two seasons.

The same can be said about bows and high power rifles.

How may bow hunters do you know that buy a new bow ever few years because it is new and improved?

One thing that I see with muzzle loaders is that if you hunt out of state you really need a different one than the one that you hunt Utah with. My CVA Accura is designated for Utah and other states that allow muzzle loaders to have scopes, it doesn't have any other sights on it. My TC Renegade is for those states that require a side lock muzzle loader, and then my TC Triumph is for states that allow in lines but iron sights only.

But I do believe that I have everything covered now and won't pick up anymore muzzle loaders.

There is always room in the safe for 1 more gun.

I use a .54 cal. T/C Black Mountain Magnum for the states that don't allow 209 ignition, scopes, and sabots. The problem I have now with aging eyes, is the ability to use open sights. The last time I used this rifle was back in 2002 on a WT hunt in Montana and took a Bull Elk in Utah with it. Very accurate after spending numerous days at the range with all kinds of load/projectile testing. Once I found what it wanted to eat, it was game on.

I've been thinking about this as well. From reading regs, and forum posts, it looks like peep sights are allowed to be used as "open sights". There are some nice ones out there that can really tighten up your groups.

Instead of having one rifle that you need to modify for western states, it really is cheaper to just get one ready for the more primitive rules states.

I too have the eye problem. My Thomson Center Renegades sights are just fine. They are large enough that I have no problem, but any others and I have a hard time focusing on three things at once. For those I went with peep sights which I learned to shoot with and work quite well.
