There are some matches that the Traditions Trapper cannot be shot in. It is considered a "plow handle".The Traditions Trapper looks like it has potential as a poor man's 25 yard Bullseye pistol with the sights swapped out
It looks cool, it shoots cool, it is cool. Probably the best bang for the buck. I love mine. They are insanely accurate. Mine is in .50", I kind of wanted a .54", but I'm quite happy with it in .50". With the Hornady 240 it produces as much power (or more?) than a .54" ball...if one needs/wants/desires that much power. With the slug and top loads, I believe it comes close to .357 Magnum ballistics. Or you can light matches or snuff out candles all day with powder puff loads. Nice pistols. You are going to love it. And it looks cool.I'm getting a Plains pistol in .50 ,I just think it looks cool.
