That is exactly right! They do not want us to have guns. It is not about limiting them. the long term goal is to take all of them away from us.

The government requires registration and licensing of vehicles.

"For 2016 specifically, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data shows 37,461 people were killed in 34,436 motor vehicle crashes , an average of 102 per day."  Why no attempt to ban cars by the libs?

In the latest Texas so called "shooting", the law has said the guy has a criminal record. I bet he was not even legally able to own a firearm. We shall see if and when it is told to us.

In the meantime, I am wondering how many people have been killed this year with hammers, fists, knives etc.?  Suspect the numbers far out weigh those killed with guns.

The government has banned the use of cell phones in vehicles while driving in many areas yet a huge number of people die in accident caused by them. It is against the law to drive drunk. That law is not working very good either!

This is one of the earliest Sharps Slant Breech production rifles, made between Nov. 1 1852 and April 1, 1855. These were also call "Box Lock: models. The Slant Breach models were distinct . 1851, 1852, 1853 and 1855. The Sporting Rifle was chambered in 3 calibers. At the time Sharps used the English system. The Sporting Rifle came in 3 Bores. 32 Bore 60 Bore and 90 Bore.

The stock is walnut, brass hardware. Stock was varnished and barrels browned. The receiver and lever were case hardened. The fore arm tip was cast pewter.

Apparently a very few of the last 1851's had blued barrels. Single triggers, like mine were standard. double set triggers were and option. Apparently almost half were double set.

There are serial numbers barrel, receiver, wood forearm, patch box cover, Maynard tape primer cover etc.

Hope this helps give you a better understanding.

I will not be shooting this gun as I am NOT the owner but merely it's caretaker. When I meet my maker it will be donated to the Montana Historical Society so others may enjoy it..

I just got this 1851 Sharps rifle with Maynard primer system. It is a 60 bore (approx. 42 caliber)  According to Frank Sellers only 193 1851's were produced. Of these only 30 with round barrel and 60 bore were made. I am fortunate to be it's new "caretaker"!!

I think we should ban Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and any vehicle that can exceed the Interstate speed limits. They are not needed. All vehicles should have a speed limiter of some type so our roads will be "safe".

All vehicles must be sold by a licensed dealer and private sales should be banned.

There should be a 10-day waiting period from the time of the vehicle's purchase and when the new owner can take possession of it.

And so forth...

We should ban liberals.   Just saying......

Pass all the gun laws they want. Present gun laws are not followed by our government or enforced. Anyone who thinks a criminal will obey the gun laws is and absolute FOOL!!

The grabbers say the 2nd Amendment was about muskets. NOT! the Juicers had those and the Colonists had far superior rifles!  The good guys had the best and most modern firearms of the day! We should as well.

The question was asked, "why do we need 100 rnd. mag"? Need is not the issue. It is our right! The Constitution is clear about this.

If we want to solve a huge cause of accidental deaths, lets ban cars!!

Hi, there has been a lot of discussion on Colt supplying extra cylinders for his revolvers. Most say that extra cylinders are a myth.

Dennis Adler's book "Colt Single Action from Paterson to Peacemakers, has many photos of original cased Patersons, most with and extra cylinder.

I am fortunate to have a number of unfired, cased 2nd gen Colts and a number of original firearms. I have reproductions of all my 2nd gen and originals so I do not shoot them. I think of myself not as their owner, but their caretaker. They can not be replaced. My favorite everyday shooter is a 2nd gen 1851  Navy. It had been fired when I bought it. I got it to shoot. Love the action!

It is interesting to read about this battle. Fascinating the differences in them as told from each sides point of view. I go to the battlefield often as it is not far.
I always think it interesting to fanaticize being able to go back in time as the pilot of an A-10 Wart Hog! I wound what the historians would have to saw about that?
