RE: should not be fired unless FIRST checked by a gunsmith

"A reproduction Sharpes would be neat. In 45-70 smokeless."

A buddy of mine and his wife both shoot an original Sharps chambered in .45-110. Competitions take place at 800 yards, but it's all black powder. He does all of his loading with a drop tube, and FWIW, he says she's better than he is. He's one helluva leather worker, too, as evidenced by the photo. That holster is entirely hand made - one of a kind.

The M1 Garand is a fine firearm, although they're not cheap these days. My understanding from a friend (who's a 30-year retired staff sergeant) is that you have to be somewhat careful about the loads you use in it, though.
