Ok, sell the AKs, the ARs, the M1A, or at least put them to the back of the safe, bring on the 45-70 Sharps, bought me a Taylor Sharps with a 32 in barrel, and boy-howdey is it nice. We were plugging away at rocks out at 600 and 800 yards, is that fun or what.
Is it normal to wig out on a gun like this or have I lost it? yeap, I have lost it....
Just wanted to share the moment with folks who might understand....

I know what you mean.:cool: I've got a rebarreled and restocked Rolling Block in .45/70. Sometimes I have more fun with that than with my evil black rifles.

Ned, it really is fun, and if you are lucky enough to have a place were you can shoot at long ranges it really is fun,( I do) the 500 grain bullets really kick up the dust, heck the 300 and 405 grainers kick it up too..
And, if there are any buffalo that happen by the house, you will be ready.
