    Take it from a genuine old dude, you guys are babies. You're not old till they put your bottom in
    ICU and ask if you want a DNR sign.

    A lot of satisfaction in taking your time and enjoying each shot. Also a lot cheaper ammo-wise than blasting through a high cap mag.

    "any gun designed for use by the military " ........ a cavalry carbine...... by their definition, a 1851 Navy Colt would be banned.

    Back in 1873, the '73 Winchester was the high capacity 'assault rifle' of the day...compared to the single shot Trapdoor. In the 19th century, the civilians and the Indians were always better armed than the military....Imagine that????

    I don't see a problem. I'd love to have a Sharps Rolling Block.

    Besides that, if push come to shove, you can get all the hi-caps you want with it.

    You my friend are afflicted with an illness for which no known cure exists. But do not despair, an approved treatment plan exists. Keep buying guns and all will be well.

    I've fired some old singles. One of them was the 'Quigley Special" it was in .45-110 I think. That put the bug on me and I have been wanting one ever since. I just havent done it yet.

    Just for clarification, the Sharps rifle is a falling block;

    The rifle is an Italian Pedersoli 45-70 calvary carbine. Beautiful wood, deep blue finish, rear sight is ladder style with post front.

    Yeah, I know its ancient, good for nothing, and single shot would not interest many, but I am dreaming of days at the range, with a box full of handloads, blue skys, cool breeze, and taking my time, savoring every shot, and knocking the center out of a 12 inch bull at 200 yards.

    Really, I need help.
    Nothing wrong with you, I've always wanted a Shiloh Sharps 1874 Business Rifle.
