    That had me LMAO. With 4 kids I have found myself saying that quite often!

    That is a fantastic little Sharps. I love the engraving on that fine piece . It's hard to tell from the pic's but I'm not seeing any signs of lines or grain in the grips. I have seen them with wood and also a black synthetic rubber. So what type of material do you think they are?

    Looks like bone or ivory for the grips-trying to shoot it would be a bad idea-it's a 19th century weapon made using 19th century materials and tolerances, not intended for modern ammo.

    That sharps is in fact the dreamgun of mine when i was collecting guns. I never bought one even i could get one imported legally since it is legal to won guns older than 100years (or something like that, i forgot since i got of that addiction)
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Most likely.
    Nice piece!
    If it were not so difficult to own hand guns here, I would likely have a few.
