  1. Howdy, again, Hellbender, Those #20 screwdrivers caught my fancy. If you're not coming to Texas anytime soon, send'em to me at 77380. Let me know what I owe. Thanks, Brazos
  2. Mr. Shackleberry and I wish you the best regarding your surgery. And that's no joke. Brazos
  3. Howdy, Smokedawg, Sometimes my sense of humor is missed by folks that don't know me. Sorry for any confusion, and I'm not Mr. Shackleton or Shacklepound or Shackleounce. I'm sure the real Mr. Shackle... will show up, especially if he's looking for some gold! Good luck with your search. Brazos Unshackled John
  4. I'm your Mr. Shackleton. And you didn't pay me yet. Send lots of money to me, and we'll be good. Signed, Mr. Shacklepound looking for a ton
  5. I see your location. I stayed in a motel on the edge of Nashville a few years after Townes died, and took the page from the phone book that listed Van Zandt T It's among my treasures. I'll have to label it, so the kids know what it is. Or donate it to KPFT radio for a fund raiser. He was a regular performer in their back yard. Afterwards, they used to hold a wake for him on 12/31 or 1/1 down at the Old Quarter bar in Galveston. Townes was ......well, he was Townes.
  6. By the way, Jan 1 marks the deaths of Hank Williams, Townes Van Sant, and Eddie Shaver. That Heavenly band just gets better and better.
  7. On finding a friend, by a Houston troubadour: Now I'm out of prisonI got me a friend at lastHe don't drink or steal or cheat or lieHis name's CodineHe's the nicest thing I've seenTogether we're gonna wait around and die
  8. I'm sorry, my son, but you're too late in asking... If I included the last line, everyone would get it right away.
  9. I got all excited by knowing the song that I didn't look for other answers. Marshal Hangtree beat me to it, but he seems to beat a lot of folks at this musical knowledge! My hat is off to you, Sir!
  10. Love at the 5 and Dime by Nanci Griffith
  11. Buckles included????? That's the only way I'll get one.
  12. Your shirt sizes run large. Is #4 full cut? I'm not a big guy, but sometimes M shirts are rather slim. If it is full cut, I'll take #3 & #4. If not, I'll pass on both. Thanks, Brazos John The Woodlands, Texas 77380
  13. I like that name. Never heard it before, but it describes it nicely.
  14. That's an interesting buckle. I think the stone is called Picture Jasper. Brazos
  15. Better yet, can you PM me, and I'll reply to you? Thanks, Brazos
  16. Back in the good old days, maybe 30 years ago, I was at a gun shop looking at wishes and hopes. Colt had a rep there, a cute young lady, that was handing out pins and stickers. We chatted briefly, and I told her about how much I liked shooting my Colt Frontier Scout. She mentioned the Mag cylinder, and I told her that one didn't come with the pistol. I had bought the pistol at a gun shop, in used but like-new condition, for about $125, on lay-a-way. She took my name and address, and said that she would send me one. I smiled and said thanks. Well, sure enough, a few weeks later, a new Mag cylinder was delivered to me. I was impressed. I thought that was pretty cool. Trying to decide which kid inherits it. Probably my daughter. She first shot it at age 5, and loved it.

  18. We all know that SAA's cannot be shipped directly to the buyer (a regular shooter). However, black powder cap and ball pistols can be shipped directly to you. What about an 1851 Conversion? If the seller takes out the conversion cylinder, can he ship the cylinder and the pistol (separately) directly to you? Restated, if you're buying a conversion, can it be shipped directly to you, if the cylinder is shipped separately? Not taking shipping costs into consideration. Just wondering….
