Default Shiloh Sharps 1874

FOR YEARS....I've had a hankering to own a Shiloh Sharps in 32 or 34", 45-XXX fixed with a vernier tang rear sight and a globe front sight, and double set triggers. I may be "thinning the heard" (in my safe) in the near future to mitigate the cost (at least) as well as unload some stuff I no longer have interest in.

That said, I'm curious to know if any of youz shot the Sharps and what do you think of it, far as a viable competition piece? (I think it would be a blast, for example, to shoot it at the BBB!).


Quotable quotes...

"You can't miss 'em fast enough to kill 'em!"

"There's no part of shooting more expensive than cheap glass!" Rick Fox

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Edmund Burke

A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity. -- Sigmund Freud

"People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both" attributed to Ben Franklin.
