    Interesting!

    Those are about the same choices I've narrowed it down to. An Isaac Hayes or Pennsylvania Fowler from Jim Chambers is on my list too.

    Im really leaning towards that fowler.

    It would be a versatile gun to have and Im sure I would use it a bunch.

    I love my little .32 rifles though too.

    Sounds like grounds for both, but then you have to decide which comes first. I'm leaning toward the fowler, too. One of my favorite hunting pards, now long gone, made me a believer with his 62 caliber trade gun. I was on hand for kills ranging from deer to rabbits to ptarmigan and ducks. All with the same gun! In his case, "beware the man with one gun" was really true.

    Made some phone calls today. Well let me give an update on what getting.

    I want a
    southern tennessee sytle stock in premium maple 70-90 curl
    Swamped 32 barrel, 38" in length
    Small Siler flint lock
    Double set triggers
    Patch box
    And of course all the screws, buttplate, sights ect that are needed to round it all out. steel trim.

    So I called Tennessee Valley Very nice and helpful lady. and she knew her stuff. She said it would be no problem as her husband makes the stocks one at a time by hand. The only thing electical is the band saw. She said most of the inletting will be done along with alot of the metal work. She quoted me a rice barrel. I Think the total was going to be somewhere around 900.00

    I called sitting Fox, and for about the same thing except he said he would get me a green mountain barrel I was looking around the mid 700 mark. But I would have to fill out a form and mail it to him so he was sure of what I wanted and then he could get me an accurate quote.

    Both shops are a few weeks turnaround for kits.

    Ill wait and see what the actuall qoute is from sitting fox, but Im on the short path now! I think my choice will come down to price, both shops were helpfull, courteous and seemed like good people to deal with.
