Reply To: AEAC reviews the Western Big Bores Bushbuck .45
Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Yes, I am a proponent of a mechanical safety (although I own several rifles without them), but it should be noted that mechanical safeties are not fool proof.
IMO the Bushbuck is a purpose built single shot hunting machine. And the cocking mechanism should not be engaged until the shooter is ready to take a shot. In the event the target does not present a shot then the shooter should disable the powerhouse by de-cocking the action.
Your desire for an additional level of safety like a mechanical safety is understandable. I sent an email to Western Big Bores linking them to this thread. Perhaps they will consider this in future designs.
