I don't have a dog in this fight.  Only T/C I own is a circa 1981 .54 caliber Hawken.  100 grains of Goex FF and a 430 grain Maxi-Ball.  Killed a lot of deer with that combo.  Hangs over the mantle now.  Something else to consider.  There is a press release out there dated 3 May 2021.  Subject is S&W brands plan to divest T/C product line.  My two takeaways from the piece:  (1)  Not expected to have a material financial impact on Q1, FY22 results. (2)  Will not result in workforce reduction.    Riiight.  My questions:  Who will buy the brand and what product lines will they continue?  Suspect Contenders and Pro Hunters will get scarce if they aren't already.
If you have the shot, take it.

I was really looking forward to a new challenge, too bad the nephew sold it on me.
