Default Rude Awakening from Fedex

Did i do good? I didnt pay much at all for this beautyful TC Hawken that i just got back from TC.

On it came a new stock that beautiful wood grain and a brand new lock. The old lock has some wear on the finish.

Debating on if i should shoot it or not. Got a whole bunch of powerbelts.

Whatcha guys think? I LOVE the TC box they sent along with it, thats box is eye catchy.

That's a nice rifle. They are good shooters and a lot of fun to have around. Good luck with it.

Ok Falcon, Just to make you happy i loaded the rifle with 80 grains Pyrodex Select, 295 grain HP Powerbelt and took along 2 speed loaders. I went to my longer shooting range, trimmed some tree branches up and shot my target box @ 72 yards. 1st shot was 6 1/2" low and 4" to the right. After adjustment #2 shot was 3" to the right and 4" low. On my final shot i clipped the 6*Clock postion on the 2" orange dot.

Great shooting rifle i will tell you that! Today was just sight in and get to know the rifle. Tomorrow i'll take 3 more shots now that shes on target.

My brother also took "Big Girl" out and at 72 yards with the .54 smoothbore musket, he shot a 4 1/2" 3 shot group. This rifle just has a shotgun style front sight lol. We are still learning this one, but so far it looks to be perfect for 75 yard and under Deer/Elk hunting.

Great Plains is coming out next after i clean the TC.
That other Big Bit.. can wait till later.
