I don't want you to think I was being ugly at you, that is not my intent. I read your post, the one I initially responded to and it reads as nothing more than "flintlock bashing" and all I wished to do was clear up the myths and misconceptions created by cheap production built guns and replace them with the facts, not "opinion". The facts are simple, you spend $720 on a T/C Hawken, you get whatever happened to be slapped together on an assembly line and even if you never fire it, when you go to sell it you'll never even come close to recovering what you spent on it. On the other hand, you invest a little more for a quality hand-built custom gun built the way you want, use it for years and as long as you take care of it, you'll sell it and make a profit.
