    Bob, if you talk to him, tell him we are thinking of him and wish him speedy healing. I noticed in recent photographs that he had lost a lot of weight. Didn't think that it might be due to illness.

    $15 was half a weeks wages for many people in the 20's. My very generous grandmother and aunt bought me my first .22, a new Remington 514 in 1950 for $12. It was a BIG present. What is half a weeks...

    Mike, I think that he meant that there are none available because folks have panicked and bought more than they needed. Sales have stopped because there is no inventory, because sales have been...

    Two fingers of his left hand will not be happy

    if he pulls the trigger in that position! He needed to look like he was serious for the photographer but knew that he really wasn't going to shoot soon, hence the dangerous grip.

    I'm asking this question here since we don't have a Class 3 forum.
