A lot of people are adding modern semi-auto firearms to their collections because of what the future may bring.

California being California - but as the old political-quote goes, "...so goes California, so goes the country..."

That’s a well-worn adage (with hair on it) but thankfully not necessarily true, regarding firearms.

Why would you sell off parts of your collection that are perfectly legal, even in California, because of what your “inherent knowledge” portends?  No pun intended, but it seems you’re jumpin’ the gun a bit with that.  Would it be a matter of anticipatory capitulation?

recent law changes there have me liquidating a lot of my collection (Aw's and magazine fed Semis), because of my inherent knowledge of what the future will bring.


Inside skinny or just "California being California" ?

Hi pit, thanks for the great photos. I am envious to say the least. How long have you been collecting originals?

Regards,
Richard

Hi Richard,

I have tinkered with original antique guns for years, Merwin and Hulberts and some Flintlocks, but my home base is in CA (AZ for work), and the recent law changes there have me liquidating a lot of my collection (Aw's and magazine fed Semis), because of my inherent knowledge of what the future will bring.

I've always had a deep interest in the history of the West and the war between the states, and my interests have galvanized in the collecting of these, so, I've probably earnestly collecting about two years.

I find a firearm, research it, photograph it, and read and about - it is more fun that shooting them for me, lol.

I did the same with the WW2 firearms, for a while.


Pit.

That my friend is totally awesome. Thanks for sharing her here. Do you or have you shot her and if so, how do she do?

Thank you, Big Ted,

With a small load, 25 grains or so, I am sure she'd shoot just fine, lock up is solid and nothing rattles.
I very well may shoot her - we'll see,

Pit.
