Black-powder Cartridge Rifle

If you've seen the film 'Quigley Down Under' you will know all about our shoots - bucket and buffalo targets with the odd steel-pig thrown in.

Rifles must be American 'exposed hammer' firearms from the last quarter of the nineteenth century.  Obviously, replicas from firms like Pedersoli are most popular, with the Sharps and Rolling Blocks making up most of the field.  Crossed-sticks are the favoured form of support and iron-sights can be anything, providing they look authentic.  Shooting takes place at all ranges from 200 yards out to 1000 yards - our famous Billy Dixon shoot.  It's usually plenty of sighters and at least 40 rounds to count.  We also have a few 'precision' black-powder shoots for any type of BP rifle.
