If I had two rifles suitable for deer it would still take me up to the day before to decide which to use. I had to get Momma's stuff ready for tomorrow morning so I made up my mind. [file]147833[/file] Shiloh Sharps Montana Rough Rider in 45-2.4, 3rd generation Colt SAA, 5 1/2 in. in 45 Colt, Jimmy May damascus knife and Rick Bachmann leather. The fact that I can't see the Rocky Mountain sights on the Ballard good enough for shooting at game might have had something to do with the decision. Aperature sights I still do well with!!
