Probably getting some guns back.
« on: August 12, 2018, 12:53:59 PM »
A couple years back, I sold a Remington 1858 and a Remington 1858 .45 Colt conversion pistol to a buddy. Now he and his wife are in the middle of hard times. He lost a toe to diabetes and poor circulation and is back in the hospital to lose another toe and maybe the whole foot. I'm probably going to buy one or both of the guns back to give them some extra cash.

You are a good man to be proactive in helping out a guy down on his luck. Kudos to you, EM!

Agreed, good friends help each other. I did much the same when 2 friends were going through divorces. The only bad thing in my cases were that the friends moved away and now we don't see each other very often.
