Digging through the New Braunfels Schuetzen Verein archives, I just stumbled across this photo.  It's titled "Stevens Rifle Team".


I thought the middle man was asking permission to go to the can.
  

If a waffle falls over on a breakfast table and no one is there to hear it, did the waffle make a sound?

You see how his right eye is bigger and more pronounced than a normal persons right eye? That's because he used it a lot shooting iron sights. All the best shooters had that big ole eyeball.

I believe that the gentleman seated on the right in the top photo has a J. P. Lower Special Order Ballard.

Perhaps it's a screen resolution issue but I can see front barrel sights on all rifles except the Sharps in the center where the bottom side of the rifle faces the camera.
I higher resolution photo would likely show those front sights more clearly.
