Phoned in some maximum bids yesterday. Waiting/watching to see if I win anything. The first gun on my list went for $125 more than my bid!

Hawg, I had always heard that the Hawken was a difficult rifle to build. I have built percussion and flintlock rifles and pistols from scratch, also a Trapdoor Sporter in a pre-carved stock. I started a Hawken several (many) years ago, still unfinished. And started a Trapdoor Gemmer a while ago. Yep, they are not your run-of-the-mill rifles!

I had a new leather GI shoulder holster 30 years ago, but foolishly sold it to a co-worker. It was right handed so that influenced my selling it.

Very nice! My gun was purchased used; I think it was built from parts for competition shooting as it has a NM barrel, and mis-matched numbers. BUT....the price was right!!  Also had the grip safety disconnected. I put that back into use  because of possible legal issues if I had to use the gun for anything serious.

Have things gotten any better out there? We had very heavy rains here for 3 weeks, caused lots of flooding, bridge and road washouts. Luckily, we are high and dry, but lots of folks in the towns around lost most, if not all, of their belongings. Technically, they were probably on a flood plain, but most don't buy flood insurance. Who would have thought we would have two 100 year floods in 2 weeks? Some of the schools are starting tomorrow, starting late because they were either flooded or students did not have access to them because of washed out roads.

Good lookin' kid, I hope everything went well. Wow, $1300! That would buy 4 suits at my usual place! Can't remember the last time I wore one....probably to a wedding or funeral.
