This story isnít about combat guns that we normally talk about
But it is about a gun used in combat from a different era. I found it to be an interesting read and thought others might find it interesting. It involves a story or a myth about an impossible shot with a Sharps rifle made by Billy Dixon in 1874. Billy Dixon knocked an Indian off his horse at a distance later surveyed to be 1,538 yards. A forensic scientist calculated that a .50-90 black power Sharps couldnít throw a bullet that far. Here is the story of the tests they ran to prove it.
