As for fearing the unknown, it's saved a lot of bacon!!!
And missed a lot of venison.
With respect, quit yer bitchin'. If you don't like the Electra, don't buy one. But don't rant about those who do. The chasm between gun owners is exactly the thing the anti-gunners want to see. We need to be on the same side.
Nobody said anything was wrong with percussion or flintlock ignition. The Electra buyers (and there aren't that many) aren't trashing the traditional guns. The only people who are complaining are those who don't like the electronic ignition. I don't own one, nor do I intend to buy one, and I'm not in favor of using them during the "traditional" season, but frankly, I'm tired of the whining.
