Just bumped into this forum and it looks interesting. I'm an old man, but a persistent shooter and hunter. Love the muzzleloaders and shoot them a lot. I recently ordered a Pedersoli Bounty Hunter on a whim and wondered if anyone else has any experience to share with one of them. I have several other Pedersoli pistols and just decided the Bounty Hunter looks like it could be fun.

Welcome from Sitka, Alaska. Been arguing with myself as to whether I really, REALLY, need one of Dixie's repro LeMat Army revolvers. :) View attachment 226248
Need has nothing to do with it, want is the key word.

You want one, yep, you surely do!

I didn't need any of the rifles I've built for myself, but I sure did want them enough to build them.

Stony, is the bounty hunter a cap n ball revolver?

The Bounty Hunter I have ordered is a percussion single shot .50 caliber. It is similar to a Kentucky model...with a really long barrel ! I'll be doing some hunting with it probably and maybe even shoot a match or two just for fun.

I love shooting my black powder guns. I own 3 rifles and 3 pistols. I may take a few to the range this week.

I know, hence the argument with myself. What conceivable use would I have for a nine shot .44 cal. percussion revolver which also sports a 20ga. shotgun barrel? Well, none, but I still want it, and thus the argument continues. :)
