Cody dixon in SASS Wire Posted 7 hours ago I asked Charles Goodnight lots of CD questions over the years as he was one of the original CD shooters at THSS that basically wrote the rules. He told me they really wanted single shots to be Sharps, Trapdoors, HiWalls in rifle caliber. I asked about 44-40 as it was originally a rifle caliber and he said no. He also said no H&R Handi Rifles, as they would obviously be a gamer gun. His opinion. And I tend to agree, is that a Trapdoor Carbine (in 45-70) probably the best Single Shot rifle. Allthough the short-barreled HiWalls that are self-cockers are also pretty good. for lever guns I think a Marlin in 38-55 is the way to go. Cody Dixon is a great category, lots of fun to shoot rifles that require more aiming than just pointing! I be wish more clubs offered it.
