So today at Sportsman's Warehouse I'm looking at the TC stock/frames/forarm assembles for roughly $450 to $499 depending on if you went with the TC Encore or Encore pro in camo. Well then I noticed a TC Encore stainless synethic w/a 209X50 muzzleloader barrel (not the pro barrel that can have the breach plug removed without taking the barrel off, but a muzzleloader barrel nonetheless) anyways they want $520 for the whole thing. Which to me is a total no brainer as I was really wanting the stock/frame/and forearm assembly but getting a muzzleloader barrel for roughly $20 was just a bonus.
Anyways, I figure I'd like to give this muzzleloader thing a go as it could allow me ot apply for a couple permit draw hunts in the future (not this permit period I realize) and might be a fun challenge as well. Only problem is I know ZILCH about muzzleloading and what it entails. So if someone would be welling to help spend my money to get setup with the right cleaning stuff, powders, primers, bullets. As well as maybe even let me drive them out to the range to get some hands on, on how to load, clean and whatnot that would be GREAT. I know people are busy, but if someone in the know might be able to find to time to teach me a little about my muzzleloader it would be much appreciated.
