    WARNING: A too good deal is probably a too good deal if from a stranger.

    COMMON SENSE!!!!! If you are offered a $1500 gun for $300, it’s a scam, period. Like when my wife wanted a teacup Yorkie . She lost $700 to a scammer. These are $2000 dogs at least. Would she listen to me? NO!!! 😡 finally made her visit a AKA breeder to set her straight…..

    Original Johann Springer Match Pistols

    I’d quit wearing the rubber gloves. You need the history of the gun to ooze onto your skin, and absorb it.

    Black walnuts

    After we were done walking home from school uphill both ways, we had to hull walnuts WITH OUR TEETH. Our mouths were stained so bad, people thought we were vampires. Come to think of it , we were vampires. Dad would come out of his coffin, and whip us until he was too tired, then we had to whip...

    Hunting gun

    People tend to forget after the civil war there were a LOT of veterans who only had one arm left. I think a few long barrel pistols were made for them. Also good for carry in the buggy, not taking up much room.
