thompson center

Postby DeerCamp » Mon Sep 15, 2008 5:12 pm

I went to Jay's today and I fell in love with the new thompson center. I loved that way the gun, looked, felt, and everything eles. I think Im might have to buy one of these. I kept thinking about it all day. Does anyone own one or shoot one? I have a blackpowder gun already, but boy did I fall in love with this one. I think Im going to wait and see if the price drops on it. A grand is to much for a gun if you ask me.

I have the Pro hunter in .50 cal.  I bought it when it first came out and paid a grand for it... I you just want a T/C and dont need the new endevour you can pick up the Pro Hunter's for about 600 now.  On the other hand I love it I put the Nikon Omega BDC 250 on it I cant believe how accurate it is.  Wouldn't trade it for anything.  I actually think I am going to use it in regular rifle season here in PA this year.

I also have a Pro Hunter .50 cal.  I love that gun and use it during regular "shotgun" season here in Ohio as well as "black powder" season.  It is accurate and reliable.  I also wouldn't be afraid to use it during West Virginia rifle season as well.

I have a TC Black Diamond 50 cal that will shoot clover leaf patterms all day long @ 100 yards with hornady SST's and 2 pellets of 777 .... They are hard to load but group oh so good ... tried powerbelts in it and it looked like I was shooting them with a sling shot ......
 
I do like the look of the new Thompson/Center Triumph ....

I own the TC Black Diamond .50 Cal. as well. I like it a lot, like the above post said once you find the right combo your comfortable with it will group excellent. I havent had much luck with it in the field though, i have never taken a shot at a deer with it, but i would trust myself up to 150 or so yards with it. Well worth the money, I bought it a few years ago, my dad got the same one lol, he took a doe with his in 2006.

I also have a Black Diamond as well as the Pro Hunter.  Both guns love 3 pellets of 777 and the 250 gr. Barnes MZ solid copper.  Tack drivers.  The only thing I didn't like about the Black Diamond was it was a bit of a pain to clean.  I killed a lot of deer with that Black Diamond though.

I have a TC Omega and I absolutely love it!  The way it comes up for me and just the over feel and ease of use is awesome!
