General opinion of the Traditions .50 caliber (percussion) "Trapper" Pistol"? Here in Idaho I can only use it for target shooting. (or as back-up to my .45 caliber 1911 for self defense) It is not a legal hunting weapon. (except for a tree'd Mountain Lion/Puma/Cougar if/when hunting with hounds, which because of a lack of a hound or hounds, I cannot do.) Can't even have it along for a "back-up" gun.
