  1. Red & green inlays in the grips for port & starboard?
  2. Did the relocker fire? A relocker is an auxiliary locking bolt on a "hair trigger" (often a piece of glass in front of the locking mechanism). If the safe is violently abused (hammer, pry bar, drill et c.), electronic or mechanical, the relocker will fire. On cheaper safes w/o a relocker, if the electronic lock is beaten off, the burglar can operate the lock bolt solenoid if he knows the correct wires to energize. Re: setting dial combos, don't use #s too close together, say 5 or fewer #s apart. Nor zero, for some reason. The safe guys in the LS shop I work in (not a LS myself) say dials are better. A good (S&G) electronic is OK, but dials give fewer problems. Red Hooker
  3. Linen clothes are supposed to be good in hot weather.
  4. The Bullet Hole is in Delaware County, Town of Andes, near the hamlet of Andes.

  5. "An armed society is a polite society." Science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein, quoting ...uh, some French philosophe.
  6. 'Long as I'm posting IMDB links for pretty girls...... http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000368/bio
  7. Michelle Carey :wub: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0137004/
  8. Hate to burst your bubble, but what you have is, indeed, a Belgian knock-off. Westley Richards guns are always signed just that way, "Westley Richards", in full, no "W." It has English proofs because it was sold in England. If no Belgian proofs, probably imported as parts and assembled in "Old Blighty". Pics of proof marks?
  9. Gus: The new Dixie Gun Works catalog, page 8, has a new book on the Burgess rifle, "The Burgess Long Range Rifle Model 1878" by Dale A. Olson, $19.95
