    Champing at the bit!

    Got off the phone to the importer almost about to tick over to the 3 month mark of the 4 month wait for my new baby!

    Can't wait, isn't she beautiful!

    Nice BH. That will make a big bang.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Nice, MLs have come a long way. I like how they are using shotgun primers. Savage even does a muzzle loader that uses either smokeless or BP.

    Hard to believe it's a muzzle loader.

    so I called the importer to check up on how its going because last week he said he wasnt positive on the ETA Only to find out that because of some issue with TC it is going to be at least another 6 months minimum before it gets here! A whole one more season without being able to hunt deer with it!!!!!!

    Think I'll stick with the old flinter and BP.

    Savage designed it to shoot both BP and smokeless,obviously didn't allow for the 1d10t factor
