    I have a 32 Crockett along with 3 other 32 rifles. Love squirrel hunting with them. The Crockett is my favorite out of the ones I have. Shoots great and has good balance

    civilization has spread out so far, taken out rural areas. where im at, id be afraid to use bullets, as they can travel to far.
    Dang, if i can hit a squirrel with my 20 gauge, single shot., even if they are still. Must be a curse on that.
    good enough for dove's. i could hit doves, where other shooters were missing them with automatic, or pump shotguns. figure that one out, cause i cant. a decent pellet gun, is good for squirrels.

    Not sure how being a single shot would make it any more, or less accurate than a repeater. Studying on that one

    I like it when you catch them cutting a big hickory or walnut. Just shot the nut and the concussion kills em. No wasted meat at all that way

    I used a buddy of mine’s flintlock Fowler a couple years ago, went rabbit hunting, squirrel and Turkey hunting with it. Was a real satisfaction knowing I did it. Makes ya wonder how long it has been since people in that area used a flintlock to take a Turkey or a rabbit being ran by a pack of beagles with one. Or shot a grey outta hickory tree. I kinda liked mixing my shot. If I was in a stand of tall hickories early season I’d mix a little more 6 shot with some 7’s. If it was late season I’d mix 7’s and 8’s for the ground. For Turkey I mixed a good load of 4’s,5’s, and 6’s. Kinda a good all around gun. The owner has killed several deer with it by using a slug. He told me back in the day they would load anything up in them. Small rock, said he had read reports of them using shards of flint at the Indians. Kinda payback of them killing family members with flint arrowheads. Used old nails anything laying around they could ram down the barrel. Be a bad way to go getting hit with debris.

    Sweet looking little rifle ! With current political situation we may all have to get used to more primitive hunting weapons. Ammo is near impossible to find. Turkey hunters already complaining about unable to find turkey loads, and exorbitant prices when they do. Damn commie liberals.

    One of my favorite memories turkey hunting was a bird I killed across a small creek with a TK2000. Big ol heavy bird that was looking for love on our (I was a youth) way back to the truck. Adds a little more suspense not knowing if you hit the thing until the literal smoke clears.
