    traditions used to make an inline 50 cal pistol with a long barrel. If you look around you might find one.

    You can make your own or this site sells one with a 12" barrel and the caliber that you want. http://www.avsia.com/tvm/pistol.htm

    Hey, and Semper Fi. Ive got a customized T/C Scout pistol that shoots very well. I have taken a couple gators, several hogs and a big buck with. It is very well made. The only problem I have had was with modern powders, to use that stuff you need to convert to 209 primers, but I only shoot Black Powder and the #11 percusion primers fire every time. They are no longer in production, but I'm sure you can find one around. I have hunted a few times up in eastern Indiana, big bucks, but I did not like the idea of using shotguns only. I could have taken some monster bucks with a rifle, but them slugs only shoot so far. Good luck.

    Here at TFF
  6. I was at Friendship 2 weekends ago and no doubt you could find one there. I ahve seen it all there and then some in the 30 years I have been going to the fall and spring shoots. I traded for a custopm repro early Virginia Mountain flinter in 54 rifled. Need (actually just wanted one) it to take elk hunting. My 45s probably would do but a good reason to get a new gun anyways.
