The man in town just got a couple of them in a week after I bought my model 62. I can't buy any right now. I'm a little low on pocket cash for buying right now, heck I'm still happy with the 62. I still like to look at um though. The only way I'll hang one on the wall is if it want shoot any more.  ;D   :-*

Walt Kirst was over last week and he traded me a NIB Robert E Lee with all the accessories.
Then this week I scored a "slightly used" C Series. So that's two new to me Colt 1851's......... {?|

I also bought an 1860 2nd Generation off Gunbroker and I hope it's here the first part of next week because I have a Thuer Conversion ring coming and I need to decide what to do with it M__

Shield your eyes boys, it's a wall of glory !!
You are at war now; the liberty of your enemies is not an important concern.
