    which match/class?

    I have a Smith carbine and a Sharps Infantry rifle. Somebody tell me if I interpreted the rules correctly or not- The Smith I can shoot in regular carbine matches and the Sharps 3 band I can only shoot in Carbine II matches?

    If Im in the wrong area, feel free to boot me...!

    I believe you can only shoot the 3 band Sharps in the Single Shot team matches and individual matches.

    JBratu - Your Sharps Infantry Rifle, but not a DST Berdan, can be used in: Single Shot Individual Match; Single Shot Team Match; BLR/CL2 Individual Match; and BLR/CL2 Carbine Team Match. So, you are allowed to use your Sharps Infantry Rifle in 4 different matches. I'm sure you understand the handicap you would be under in the BLR/CL2 Team Match as you would be shooting against a majority of Henry Rifles!

    Thanks for the clarification John. I wish the type matches and the guns that are allowed to shoot in each match were listed somewhere a little more clearly!
