The OP did say possibly his Sharps too. Looks like you got 'em all rounded up.


Id love to spend a day in Shrapnels gun room.

Missouri but my hearts in the ...
I have my grandfathers 95 in 30-06 made in 1922. He managed a sheep ranch near Lander and Tensleep Wy. Way back in the 20s and 30s I believe. It was carried many miles and according to my mother, was his main hunting rifle for most of his life. He carried it mostly in a saddle scabbard and it really shows the wear but it still shoots, and according to my uncle who passed it on to me, “it shoots a little high and right”. I shot it and verified that.
As an aside, I also have a photograph of my grandpa with a nice muledeer and the rifle taken in Wyoming in 1928. My cousin still has that deer mount on his wall about 30 miles from me.
Take care, Les


Its not always easy to do the right thing, But it is always the right thing to do.

I've done 99% of my hunting with a traditional lever gun and have taken antelope with a .25-20, 25-35, .30-30, .45-70 and probably several other calibers if I counted the BLRs. Depending on the terrain, long shots at antelope are not usually necessary. Antelope, in my opinion, are the most fun of all North American big game animals to stalk. I have shot them as close as 30 feet, but 100 yard shots are not uncommon.

Sure! Normally I do hunt with my bolt action, scoped rifles. But... I've hunted successfully with a lever action Marlin, a traditional 50 cal muzzle loader and my 44 mag revolver.

Have only succeeded on small game with my bow, but I'm hoping for elk this coming year.

Yes, even "out west" a fellow can slip up close to game and take them at more modest ranges.

Regards, Guy

Fun stuff huh Guy? Hey you bear hunting yet? Went out this evening and checked trail cameras, got two cougars but no bears. Too early here by a couple weeks I'd guess. I think you hunt a little lower where you're at.

I'll have to wait for our fall bear season. The spring season is draw only.

But "fall" bear starts August 1st. smile
