Shooting The New Christmas Present

Post by Shrapnel »

I found this gun at Christmas time and decided to buy it. It is a real nice original 1886 Deluxe 45-70 There were plenty of rocks to sight it in on out to and beyond 100 yards. I didn't have to adjust the sights at all, I just shot the gun as it came, no disappointments...

That's a beautiful rifle. I often wonder if my ancestors ever shot their rifles on paper. We have so much prickly pear.

Nice rifle involved in one of my favorite sports, rock shooting.

Wow, I am envious. There is something about that cactus that just screams "shoot me"...
