Well MELVIN, I see you're still here, just as nasty and just as negative, as ever. Enjoy yourself, MELVIN.andy said:yeah, they can hit a target the size of a pickup truck, after they get the range figured out, if there's NO wind, etc. So what?

John:John in AR said:Yep. Sharps in .45-110, with a 34" barrel and tang sight. Made by Shiloh for the movie, and now they make them for sale. Might be fun to play with, but I'd never spend the money for one.
(Thing's got to weigh 12 pounds probably.)

When I was just a kid, my first centerfire rifle was an Uberti made 'Baby Rolling Block' repo that was chambered for .357mag. Uberti makes some beautiful guns. That rifle only weighed a smidge over 3 pounds but it would drop a deer.
