Re: In line vs traditional
It depends on what you want. if you want a more modern rifle then inlines are the way to go. If you want to feel what it was like to shoot and hunt "old school" then traditional is the way to go. I shoot traditional, percussion and flint lock rifles and pistols. My competition rifle is a T/C Hawken that I built from a kit when I was 16, I am in my 40's now and it is still going strong.
It really depends on what you want and will shoot.
