Re: Ruger Standard Pistol

Oh my, what a score. Bill What Bill said!! The auto is where it really started and is a favorite of mine as well though I will never have as fine a collection as many of you.

Re: first deer

Better look out for flying buttons! Grandpa must be proud enough to pop his! You are a blessed man to have a grandson to teach how to hunt and be a good sportsman. You and he both will always remember this event in his life. May you hunt together for many years to come.

Any member I have ever talked to is more than willing to help in any way that they can. I am proud to...
