I'm lucky. There never was a half stock Hawken that was a flinter. So I never have the temptation of wanting a flinter.

Keeps things simple.

It would be a range toy for me. My hunting choices would still be an in line just from a confidence level.

I can assure you, I'd like another one too and while we're wishing, the Carbon Stealth. I've held them before and they are stunningly beautiful.

Well it's kind of hard, I used to build side locks and still have a bunch of them, and a half dozen inlines. I guess one of the new copper's if I could get it in a 1-24 twist.
I thought about smokeless but I guess if I was going to shoot smokeless I would dig some cartridge guns out of the storage safe.

Go with a cartridge based BP gun like my .500 BPE side x side lemoyne. Best of both worlds Of course finding them on the cheap is a task unto itself I will warn you of that. The quality ones that are well tuned and the barrels matched for yardage anyway. Over many years of collection and shooting I have been pretty lucky with estate sales and such.

A Knight Ultra-Lite under the Christmas tree and a Nikon Monarch scope in my stocking would be my wish. It will have to wait till next year unfortunately.

Getting my replica .44 cal 1861 Army revolver tuned up and front sight replaced would be nice too. I haven't shot it in 15 years.

A Knight Ultra light would be absolutely awesome, but if I only had one wish it would be for a Pedersoli Missouri River Hawken.

If that ultra lite could be a fast twist 45 that would be my wish, Otherwise it would be a NIB White model 97 451.
