Guns Old West Magazine article on the Lightning Bolt


Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone.   

Let me plug this magazine...

This caught my eye because that is an honest to goodness AWA Lightning Bolt pistol on the cover.

I immediately ordered a hard copy, and then, being the impatient fellow that I am, I ordered a PDF copy as well.   I am very glad I did.  You see, the article has a very special couple of features.   While the one pictured here on the cover isn't, inside, in the article itself, there is a picture of MY Lightning Bolt, and I am quoted in the article!   This makes me feel very happy.

But the article is not about me.  It's about this very interesting and rather rare pistol, and I learned a lot from this well written article.  My kudos to the author for an excellent write up.   The author is billed as Alan Garbers, but we know him here by a different name.   I will out of respect allow him to identify himself at his own discretion.

 

Anyway, I really enjoyed the article in question for obvious reasons, and there's a lot of other interesting stuff in the issue as well.   

Thank you "Alan" for a well written and informative article.  I am honored to have been able to contribute to it in some small way.

So...  Who has the third one?   Maybe we Lighting Bolt owners could start a club or something....  :)

Thanks. You can mention my name anytime. I’m the culprit, Alan Garbers. 

 

I wrote an article about Bordertown in this same issue.
