It's ALSO mentioned in Quigley Down Under. (not the similarly named porno Wiggly Down Under)

Huh. I haven't seen either of those two movies.

But I DID shoot a Quigley Sharps down at Stalkingbears. That thing hurt my shoulder worse than any shotgun. I kept checking my shoulder to see if I would bruise. I didn't but, damn......that hurt.

You should watch Quigley Down Under.

Quigley Down Under starring a Sharps Buffalo Rifle and Tom Selleck as its sidekick!

Quigley Sharps rifle

Quigley says of his gun:

It’s a lever-action, breech loader. Usual barrel length’s thirty inches. This one has an extra four. It’s converted to use a special forty-five caliber, hundred and ten grain metal cartridge, with a five-hundred and forty grain paper-patched bullet. It’s fitted with double set triggers, and a Vernier sight. It’s marked up to twelve-hundred yards. This one shoots a mite further.

Three fully functional .45-110 rifles matching the above description were built for the film in 1989 by the Shiloh Rifle Co. of Big Timber, Montana, United States. They also had a 15 1⁄4 inch length of pull to fit Selleck's tall frame, a full octagon heavy barrel with a blue finish, and weighed 13 1⁄2 pounds. Due to the weight, one of the rifles was sent back to Shiloh to be refitted with an aluminum barrel so it could be swung faster (as a club) in fight scenes. After the filming concluded, Selleck kept all three rifles, and had two of them reconditioned by Shiloh Rifle Co.[12]

In 2006 Selleck donated one of the rifles used in filming to the NRA for a fundraising raffle. In March 2008 that rifle was sold for $69,000 through the James D. Julia auction house.[13] The company which created the rifle for the movie (Shiloh Rifle Co.) also offers production models (1874 Sharps Buffalo – "Quigley") for sale to the public, with an approximate $3,300 price.[14] An Italian company (Davide Pedersoli & C.) sells a copy of the Shiloh rifle under the name S.789 1874 Sharps Quigley Sporting.[15]

An annual Matthew Quigley Buffalo Rifle Match is held in Forsyth, Montana (180 miles from Big Timber) on Father's Day weekend. The shoot is the largest of its kind in America, attended by around 600 shooters, with targets out to 800 yards.[

Strange, but when I'm 84, I plan to be strange. I'm sure I'll forget what I'm planning now, but by then I'll have come up with something stranger!

Say hi to your dad for me!

At least the government is consistent.

A gun (an operating system) is used (programmed) by the lunatic behind the trigger to kill children in Sandy Hook (or fill in any other tragedy). The problem is with the shooter (programmer) and not the gun (operating system itself), but cries for gun control (criticism of the operating system choice) ensued.

Grrr....
