Will PA ever change?
 
This whole in-line muzzle loader thing has really taken off. Everyone has a great in-line out there and there are many advancements in propellents and projectiles. Do you think PA will ever have a black powder season where an iron-sited flintlock is not the only legal tool? I can see that they want to make it a challenge, but now they are trying to thin the herd. Even a flintlock with a scope. There's still a chance of a misfire, but the improved accuracy may prevent a few cripplings. How many states are flint-lock only? How about patch and round ball only?

Pa does have a season for inline muzzleloaders. Our early season is pretty much as long as you load it by the muzzle it's legal.

<font face='Verdana'></font id='Verdana'>Please remeber to read the regs. The traditional iron sights are now allowed to have fiber obtic inserts. and You can use pretty much any bullet you want. Not just the roundball.

Yes, I know now that you can use an in-line in the early season. I hate being the last to know.

KIDD642,
You better check the reg's. It says on PGC's web page that fiber optic inserts are permitted.

KIDD642. Sorry about that. I miss read your Post and thought you said that fiberoptic sights were not aloud. My mistake. Funny how your mind plays tricks on you.

14 years later and we are still flintlock only in our muzzle loader season (with the exception of the one week early doe).

That's the way a lot of us want it. But it has evolved a bit from its original regs. Initially you could only use "buckhorn" style open sights, flintlock ignition and patched round ball .44 cal or larger.
Today you can use FO sights or peep sight and any projectile (still .44 cal or larger).
If you want to use your in-line you can use it during the early ML season (anterless only) or during the regular firearms season.
If it were my choice I would have allowed the changes in sights but kept the projectile limited to the PRB.

In my view, the technology creep from iron sighted sidelocks to scope sighted inlines in the primitive season of various states was a terrible thing. It totally destroyed the intent of those seasons.
