  1. I got that number from the NSSF, along with 12 million total gun sales for 2020. That's 39% first time gun owners.
  2. Hey Slim: The million new gun owners you mentioned is a bit low. 2020 had 8.2 million first time gun buyers. Hipshot
  3. I had a great experience dealing with LSB Auctions (Lock Stock and Barrel Investments) last year. Owned and run by Spencer Hoglund, who is better known as Lead Despenser, multiple time SASS World Champion. He and his team take many photos of each gun and include detailed descriptions of the condition of the gun, and history of the gun if known. Yes, he takes a commission, but I felt he got top dollar for guns I did give him, and he earned every penny.

  4. Frank Leaman was shooting short stroked Colts, but he was the only one. NO ONE was shooting light loads, you couldn't but any .38 bullets lighter than a 158 GR bullet that would feed in a rifle. A few folks used 148 GR wad cutters in their six-guns but not many. McCandless: Thanks for the memories.
  5. Just for the records, I am currently shooting Great Western IIs and have been since 2004. I shot Colts up until that time starting in the mid 1980s. I had my picture in the Colt Catalog twice in the 90's because Colt thought it was pretty interesting that I was competing with Colt's manufactured over a hundred years apart One made in 1875 and the other manufactured in 1981. I would still be shooting the Colt's, but the Great Westerns are much prettier and the Munden action jobs on them make them a dream to shoot. BTW: All my SAs are in .45 Colt Hope I didn't disappoint you Happy Jack.
