  1. $1680 later we have a new pump and water pressure again.
  2. We are in the process of getting our house on the market and my 86-year old FIL, bless his heart, didn't hear his toilet running and ran our well dry. In the process the pump locked up. So, in the meantime we are buying water jugs at Rural King so we can keep things clean. Dealing with an elderly person with an ostomy and has the reasoning skills of a five-year old with no water is hell on earth. His plan was to empty his pouch in the trash can... Oh, heck no!
  3. I assume OFS stands for Out ***** Standing and not Orange Free State. If that's the case, thanks! You're the reason I chose a Shiloh. I am hoping that the sights are as high quality as the rifle. I have been reading the Shiloh forums just to get an idea of what I have started. My goal is to be able to compete in the long range matches at Winter Range 2021 which go out to around 500 yards. I will not be traveling any long distances for anything like the Quigley match until our situation changes. My elderly FIL lives with us and is in poor health so short trips of a few hours is tops. WR will be about 2 hours away once we make the final move to Prescott this January so I hope to go down and get the lay of the land on 2020 and be ready in 2021.
  4. I saw that. I saw where the first stage was free-hand at 300+ yards. That's going to take some practice.
  5. I like any match after our match director comes back from other regional matches with something new and fun to try. I say Doughslinger does a heck of a job at Pine Ridge Regulators. However, using movie quotes from Mary Poppins was a tad interesting to say the least.
  6. I started out with .38/.357 and then realized I wanted to compete in Classic Cowboy which requires all firearms to be .40 or larger, a rifle designed before 1880, and an external hammer shotgun. If you just plan on shooting in your age class and not a costumed category .38/.357 is the way to go.
  7. I'm having a hard time finding the sabots for that.
  8. Sure. Something that shoots like a laser out to 1,200 yards with the recoil of a .22 LR. Got any suggestions?
  9. This is the most expensive firearm I have ever bought but I feel like I got a good deal on it. https://www.gunbroker.com/Item/831406297 I look forward to getting it. Our new house in Arizona has a long range shooting range on it so hopefully I can come proficient enough to do it justice.

    Sharps Questions

    The mystery has been cleared up. I call The Shiloh Sharps Company about the Shiloh Sharps with a C Sharp barrel. They said that Shiloh Sharps briefly had a partnership with C Sharps and was using their barrels. They are legitimate Shiloh Sharps.
  11. I use the Estate shells sold at Walmart. The work fine in both of my SxS and I even reload them from time to time when my wife wants a softer shooting shell. Never had an issue with extraction.

    Sharps Questions

    The only style of single-shot rifle that fries my chicken is a 1874 Sharps. The rest just don't appeal to me. I'm sure it's a character flaw on my part. If a Springfield Trapdoor would to cross my path and I had the extra cash, I might be inclined to buy it, but not before I had my Sharps.

    Sharps Questions

    At this point I’ll probably use APP. I have to sell a few more things before I can look seriously.
  14. Two Questions: if if you were to start fresh, what caliber Sharps would you get? I have a bunch of new .45-70 brass and dies so that’s the way I’m leaning. Isn’t C Sharps and Shiloh Sharps two separate companies? I see two rifles on Gunbroker that have Shiloh and C Sharps markings. I assume someone has swapped barrels, which concerns me. My goal is to do the long range matches in Arizona at Winter Range (I think).
  15. I take it they eat the hair and pine cones because they can't find a block of cheese.
