Dear Shooter:
The Thompson Center muzzle-loaders were good, out of the box rifles, but the Encore, and its ilk I will not have in my shop! The Contender also!
I know they are popular, I know they shoot, but I wouldn't shoot one or hunt with one! I'll get flak for this but our boys in the "Big One" flew through lots of it!
I don't like the Encores looks, I don't like the bbl. change idea and they are not handguns, but hand cannons! They are chambered for rifle cartridges that belong in rifles, not handguns!

Why would you make such a choice for your customers? That?s like saying," I won't have a magnum rifle in my shop because magnums are over rated and just not necessary." OR; " I won't have a Winchester trapper or marlin 1894 in my shop because they fire rounds that belong in a pistol." The encores and contenders are solid working designs and are bought by people who know what they want.
Hey, that's what we all want in a gun dealer or other salesman, un-qualified BIAS.
