The Federal FireStick Ignition System

Pros and Cons?
The bullet is loaded from the muzzle but the powder is waterproof.
Not sure about this.

No thanks.  Buying a gun just so you can use their proprietary loads to solve imaginary problems? I'll pass.

If people are really having big problems with loose powder or pellets they probably should stick to centerfire cartridges and leave muzzleloaders alone.  Hard to believe this one is going to market.

People increasingly want things that are easier and require little to no thought to operate

Here is the ML for them.

I think it is going to be an issue in many states as they are playing with symantics.

I would be mildly interested it if I could charge the loads instead of buying prepackaged powder.  But as was mentioned, its just one more proprietaty item that will cost more to use.

No way for me. If you could still shoot it by loading it the way you do now maybe-- but to paint yourself in a corner with their loads only would be risky.

As I listened to their pitch, it sounds like there's a "ledge" inside to prevent it from being loaded from the breech end, forcing you to still stuff a projectile down from the muzzle.  That probably gets them over most of their legal issues with various states, but still looks like a gimmick of almost no value to me.
