New toy.

I had a moment of weakness yesterday.

Called and ordered a side by side Pedersoli safari express, in .72 caliber.

Shoots a 500 grain patched round ball.

Luckily, I have 9-12 months to wait for it, so I can pay every month.

Not sure what I was thinking.

The lady that I ordered it from said "Whatcha hunting? We don't get many orders for that one"

I'm going Bison hunting again next year, so I guess that's a justification. Who am I kidding though, I'll use it in regular deer season next year. Not legal for muzzleloader season.

It's awful pretty.download.jpeg.004bd81733eae0262485550f11b7dec5.jpegdownload(1).jpeg.6c281b050df72180c18f9ed4a1a73d37.jpegimages.jpeg.69fc27ec1e160e0b4c01d8c19eac9dc1.jpeg

Cool gun. Is it rifled or smooth bore?

It has a 1:75" twist. Very slow, so I'm guessing it will not stabilize a conical. Probably round ball only.

Why not legal?  Single barrels  loaded  not a revolver.. ...

Firearm loaded through the muzzle with a minimum bore of .44 inches and shooting a single projectile. Scopes or fiber-optic sights may be used at any time. You must possess a NYS Pistol Permit to hunt with a muzzleloading pistol.

A game warden I know looked into it for me yesterday. He said from what he gathered, it has to be a single barrel, capable of firing only one projectile.

They have no way of knowing if I loaded both barrels, so he said it's not legal.

I suppose I could remove one nipple during muzzleloader season, and probably be fine.

Boy, that’s a slow twist to throw a heavy ball. Should knock down a building :)

I’ve been tempted to shoot PRB out of my 10 bore, but I haven’t done it yet. 

Interesting take from the ECO. I didn’t know that.

If it has 2 triggers  its 2  guns..  you can carry as  many guns as you want  in muzzleloader.. even if it has a barrel selector can only fire one shot out a barrel.

Any pics of the 10? Love to see it!

Sure, I did a thread on it when I bought it. It’s a shotgun first and foremost, but one of these days I may see how it handles prb. 
 

 

That is a piece of art right there. 

Please post results when you shoot a ball.

FWIW, I had a double .58 and having a discussion with 2 DEC officers both were of the opinion it wasn’t legal in MZ season and that was 10+ years ago. I hunt public and it just wasn’t worth the potential argument to carry it as I have an inline anyway.

I also didnt carry a drilling 20/20/7x57 during regular in a shotgun area after a discussion, which is kinda ridiculous if I didnt have any rifle ammo with me, how could I use the rifle barrel. 

But it only takes one encounter to take all the fun out of it….

Guy I sold the .58 double to shot a monster elk with it, 390”!

NY does have some goofy laws.  On the years when I’m lacking a buck tag on Thanksgiving weekend (about half) I’d love to be able to hunt bear and grouse simultaneously, up in the Northern zone, with a slug in my left barrel and a # 7-1/2 shot in the right of my 16 ga side by side.  

I don’t think that is legal though, so I always leave the bird shot locked in my truck, when I am targeting bears, and the slugs there, when I am targeting grouse.  I’ll be pretty bent out of shape, if I ever encounter the species that I’m not loaded for.  It hasn’t happened yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it does some day.
