Oh, c'mon Pustic...that would be like mothers voting in a 'beautiful baby' contest...12 entries and 12 votes, all for their own baby! *?.

Or sitting Presidents and candidates for President voting for themselves...
But they can vote for themselves, and they do it all the time.

Reasons? It was a hard choice. Lots of goodies. To choose by beauty, by composition, by bling ...? The Patersons were exquisit. Fingers' cased nickeled Colt is outstanding. But, somehow, I immediatly took a liking to Sourdough's composition. Wild Bill layout? Pocket watch and Tutt in Springfield MO, dead mans hand up north and I sure like Mr Daniels. Composition is a tale.

Hi Hawg, if a tie they will all share a part of the prize. The Uberti Charcoal blued 1860 will be broken into three parts, barrel, cylinder, and frame? Or Dave will offer a LeMat revolver to all tied members? A brace of Patersons would also be a nice prize. Dave's the man!!

Regards,
Richard

I wish I even had just one Paterson and LeMat Richard!  (7+"

I'd probably trade a couple of mine for a Paterson!

In fact, I'd trade one of my 72 Open Tops and an 1860 Army for a Paterson. Any takers?
