A friend of mine is on the SWAT team in OKC and also a big gun and hunting nut. He just got one and is nuts about it. Me personally I am saving my pennies for one. Would get one now but already have a TC muzzleloader and the wife won't let me....Sad and lonely.....Let me know what you think if you get one.

Hey, size may not matter but it sure IS nice!

I bought mine about 3 years ago. Awesome weapon! I shot a caribou last fall with it. I have found, at least with mine, that it is very accurate out to about 150 yards. I shoot only 100 grains of powder. I tried 150 grains of powder, but I lost alot of accuracy. 295 grain PowerBelt and 2 Pyrodex pellets gives me 1.5" high at 50 yards, 2" high at 100 yards, and 3" low at 150 yards. Best I have been able to shoot is 1.5" group. Good enough for me!

If you get one, you'll love it . . . Rob
