Well, Doc Gary has blown my mind with this one. He told me he was working on a secret project and today it was revealed. If you remember back last fall when the cannon ball was found in the black walnut tree in Missouri, Doc. Gary bought a huge slab of the tree to make witness pens. The slab of wood was thick enough to make a gun stock sooooo what did he do. Had C. Sharp Arms make him a custom Sharps and he could not wait to share it with me. He even had them custom engrave the butt plate. This is one fantastic piece and there not another Sharps or any other gun that I know of where the wood is from a CW Witness tree. So here it is. I ask him if mine was in the mail :whistling:

If the good Doctor still wants the Woodruff ball, then now he has some trading material.
