Youth muzzleloader options

5 posts in this topic

Hello all

Any input on best starter muzzleloader for a 12 yr old? Not looking for a sniper rifle, just a good, basic, modest weight, easy to handle muzzy good to 50 yds. He also is a lefty, which makes things more interesting. He will be using it for the muzzy season, so no scope. Looking forward to hearing what has worked for your kids.

Thanks

I don't have experience setting a kid up for muzzleloading, but I am a lefty and use a CVA Kodiak pro; the stock is made to be ambidexterous, it fits me well. They are pretty reasonably priced also. You could research the recoil difference between a 45 caliber and a 50, maybe the 45 kicks substantially less, but I have never checked into that.

I'd suggest the Kodiak. I found an used and wow good deal for 100 bucks. I suggest them because they used to have external safety's.

I started my father in it and I think he's probable more of a kid then yours... We did put a Limb Saver Pad on the back end of it so it would kick less. Don't know why he was soo scared of a 50 cal when he's shot 12 ga before and was over 300 lbs at the time. Make it fun and hopefully it will take off.

    •   Yes, he lives in Russia. Good job, but no one disputed that fact.     Or, from your own article:         1. That's not even the point I was trying to make with that quote. 2. You do realize that Gary Johnson is no longer Governor of New Mexico, right? 3. The last political office he ran for was as a Libertarian.     I OWE you nothing but if we ever found ourselves in the same drinking establishment, I would be happy to buy a couple rounds.   Now. Tell me more about these butt-hurt Texans? Or are you just being a giant hypocrite?     
    • sorry for late reply !! hope your trip went well. We have done great this year amazing for numbers and always a few big ones.
    •     As NYT reports, the president of the 'Yes California' movement lives in Russia.     https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/21/us/yes-california-calexit-marinelli-russia.html?src=twr&smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=1   RUSSIA !!! Must be buddies with trump and putin .. (OH, MY...)   And gary Johnson (liberatarian hero) is in fact a republican.   WOOOOOO!!!!!   That's two beers you owe me.
    •   You could have just looked at him for starters.     Nothing to see here, probably just some "Christians" making fun of autistic folks.

      I swear some of you must be emotionally attached to these laws because there is no logic in your thinking, the same kind of thinking that has wasted a trillion dollars and has yet to solve a single issue. The lottery has better results than the war on drugs, at least a few winners have emerged over the years.
    •   In our local paper they highlighted a local that is an author and wrote a book on what he did for his weight loss...he would eat good for 6 days of the week and then have 1 splurge day where he could eat what he wanted and doing this reset his metabolism and he lost a lot of weight.
    •   I was thinking the same I rarely use my own wheeler but when I do I like my auger on the wheeler. I thought about buying a mount but can't stand spending that much cash on one. I was thinking of making one but that's a project for the summer months. Sorry I can't help.
    •   If that's what you want to do go for it. You're the one who will pay the consequences.   Should the guy in this video chug a bottle of Jack? Probably not but it's legal.    
    •   Maybe phone service and internet will be down. Yes! Living off grid. I like it. Can we even call it "winter" anymore? I mean seriously where's the days when getting a foot plus of snow wasent uncommon. A lot of people like these warm snowless winters. I hate it! Thanks globle warming!
