10-4 on that Bud. Currently, I'm kind of leaning towards a non-striker fired model and perhaps even a SAO. Kinda fun lookin'!

Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

How about a FN FNX-9? DA first pull, then SA after that, with a safety that is also a de-cocker.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Lotsa great choices out there now. The Sig P226 SAO Legion may be calling my name. Local LGS has one coming for me to fondle. Not as much fun as a fine woman but... LOL.

Never let a woman design a trigger!  15-20 minutes of pulling for it to go off once.... Smile

I'm currently researching a Flintlock to use for PA's 2 week flintlock/late Archery Deer season.
 
So far I'm leaning heavily towards the Traditions "PA Pellet Accelerator" Flint 50 Cal.  Styled along the lines of a Hawkens with a  26" barrel.
 
The thing I like about it other than it's one of the cheapest decent quality flint muzzle loaders available is that it has been modernized to the farthest limits and still get the PA DNR's blessing that it qualities for use during Flintlock season.  It has upgraded fiber optic open sites, removable breach plug capable of using both powder or pellets, oversized and hardened frizzen and is EASY to clean...
 
Hey Skip!  You deal with or have a line on Traditions Precision Firearms?!?!?Wink

Guy lives in PA. and wants to use some modernized whang fangdangled flintlock to shoot deer.
Don't he know that PA. is famous for it's flintlock long rifles? Don't he know PA. still has builders of custom flintlock rifles? I'm sure if he even cruised some gun shops he could find a good used one.

YEP ThRIFTY BY NECESSITY!!! 
My main attraction to the Traditions PA Pellet Flintlock is the removable breach plug not the claim about pellets.  I intend to use loose powder and am hoping BH209 will work it it without teasing or duplexing...

Nope BH 209 won't work, can't get enough flash and Traditions won't warranty the use of 209. The very best way to go with that rifle is real black powder. No subs. It's just better.
