2-1-1856: "These weapons should be the American arms, and none but American citizens should be supplied with them."
Orleans Independent Standard, “Mr. Sharp showed me certificates from scores of men, civilians and soldiers, who have used this rifle, and they all testify to its wonderful qualities. . . . The cavalry pistol carries an ounce, and the pocket pistol a half-ounce ball. They will be ready for sale in a few months.”, Feb. 1, 1856
