Oh I totally under stand your point, no doubt, I was just messin with ya a little. I WISH one of these Smoke pole manufacturer's would make me a Side lock with a REMOVABLE breech plug / lug. That way you could have the traditional "look" with the modern ease of cleaning and unloading. Just my take, I know the traditional guys will scoof at this. But it would be a cool feature.
