    Bell, Check out the Wheellocks and matchlocks in my photo file. Those were very ornate contraptions with long barrels. Took the pic in London , UK.
    I have 3 inlines, a Hatfield Mountain rifle and a Pennsylvania long rifle (my favorite). They are fun to hunt with but Archery hunting is my first love. Mainly because the rut in KS is in archery season.

    By the way, can't remember when rifling was introduced. Perhaps a smoothbore musket should be considered more traditional.

    We call sidelocks traditional but in-lines have been around for a couple of hundred years. The flintlock and percussion are themselves evolutions of the wheellock and matchlock. In-lines have dramatically improved, to say the least. How far back do we want to go - 200 years?, 400 years? Kentucky long rifle? Hawkins? Whatever turns our crank, I suppose. I like them all.

    I do tend to be more "liberal" with regard to firearms, but I do shoot black powder and I don't see the point of in lines. I shoot a traditions .50 caplock with a wooden stock and iron sights. I also like to shoot my 6 black powder pistols, but I don't hunt with 'em. My BP handguns are a representative collection of replicas that illustrate the history of firearms (except that I lack a wheellock or a matchlock. Someday...).

    Does a T/C Renegade qualify? Only once did I pull the trigger and the deer not fall. Don't let anyone tell you a patched round ball in not deadly.

    That's a neat speed reduction set up you have. Can you modify it to run 2 mills at once or move belts to run 1 at a time? Or a QD set-up to swap mill...
