I'm looking for some suggestions on where to find a lefty flintlock other than the Traditions Deerhunter. If anybody has any feed back on the Deerhunter please let me know what you think of it. My one problem with that model is that it doesn't look like a traditional flintlock.
For all of you left handed shooters is a left handed flintlock really a necessity? I shoot right handed rifles all the time and have no problem with brass flying past my nose but I am a little less happy with the thought of a flint hitting the powder in the frizzen right at the end of my nose. I know that there are some left handed percussion rifles out there but this gun is meant to be the ultimate SHTF back up gun.
My reasons for wanting a traditional flintlock are to make deer and hog hunting harder, for plinking at a local quarry and as the ultimate TEOTWAWKI gun. With some wheel weights, a mold and a recipe for black powder ammo shortages won't be much of a concern. Putting one together from a kit is not a problem and would actually be fun.
