My 1874 Sharps 45/110
Montana Black Powder Cartridge Rifle

If you have information on a shoot you would like me to post or general comments about this site, please send email to:

Weather Saturday and most of Sunday was somewhat fairly cold and windy with small gusts. An anticipated spring snow storm blew in during the second to last relay on Sunday afternoon. The last relay was almost totally snowed out. I say "almost" as all shooters of the last relay chose to call it a day, with the exception being the ever ready Dave Gallo, who was shooting a scope but was shooting Rams. Iron Sights were impossible but there was a little bit of a chance for Dave and his scope. His problem was that you couldn't see to spot with a spotting scope. Dave started shooting at the swinger with no help from his spotter who's spotting scope was basically snow blind. I had my binoculars and could barely make out fresh dirt low under the front of the swinger. Dave decided to go for score with no adjustments. Dave shot at the first two without success. I suggested that he come up a couple minutes and he shot at the third and missed. I noticed that there was a bit of wind and he made a couple of minutes adjustment and hit the fourth. I could see the ram swing from being hit in the hip so he moved a minute right, then hit the next six with the last one being in the head... Sure helps when not only are you good but you're lucky as well!
