Careful about Bogart, he is better with a Tommy Gun.

Never seen, "Virginia City", is it, that the movie is bad or the acting?

You probably have seen it,  just it is sorta forgettable...

Errol Flynn , as a Yankee spy VS Confederate Randolph Scott &  Mis-cast Bogart as a Mexican bandit.
Typical Flynn outcome with glaring mistakes.

I chanced upon an old Sharps carbine and was fortunate enough to acquire it a couple of months ago.  The factory letter than came with it gave the date of manufacture as 1876.  Note that it is built on an 1863 Sharps action.  These carbines are mentioned in Seller's book as one of the few 50-70's built in Bridgeport after the move. These carbines also had 25" barrels rather than the more standard 22".

The rifle is all original with the exception of a replacement hammer installed by C Sharps relatively recently.  The rifle was owned by John Schoffstall, as the factory letter with it was addressed to him.  The bore is in amazingly good condition, being still shiny with strong rifling.  I've installed a Marbles tang sight - thanks to my local gun surgeon making me some screws to replace the existing tang screws, so I could mount it without modification to the rifle.

The bore, much to my surprise, slugs at 0.5045", and I had to have a mold made to fit it.  Once I did that, it shoots really well.  I haven't done any formal paper punching beyond zeroing the sights, but I can consistently ring a 14" target offhand at 100 yards.  That's good enough for me to enjoy playing at our local Cody Dixon SASS matches.  Grin

If you are looking for a double for CAS shooting there are basically four.  The Stoeger and Baikal on the cheap side.  And the SKB and BSS on the expensive side.  There are a smattering of others but these make up the vast, vast, bulk of CAS double barrel shotguns.  They all require tuning for competion and if tuned correctly each works just fine.

Almost real.
I don't know much about these games.  Does this take a special system?

Go to any sporting goods store and talk to the manager about any damaged mannequins he might have.

Scouts Out!

I think it was meant to be entertaining, not scientific.

Both testers have a lot to learn about reloading.

I wonder where we could get some of those targets?

For the second time this year, our club put on a "corporate day at the range". On the first occasion we had 50+ participants. Yesterday we had ten - from a medical clinic! It was done at the request of one of the Dr.s who wants to get into shooting.

For an all inclusive fee, participnts were provided guns, ammo and one on one instruction. They shot .22 rifles and handguns on steel and or paper targets. All action types were represented, including the AR15 with .22LR conversion unit installed. Trap shooting was also offered.

The event inlcuded demos of CAS and IDPA. Guests were invited to shoot a CAS 44-40 with BP loads and a 9mm SR9. Oddly, the ladies preferred the BP 44-40.

This is the sort of pro-gun PR clubs need to engage in in order to win hearts & minds.
