    Great article!

    Wow, I don't think I would mind if you locked me in that room-full of frames and slides for a night!

    WOW, Indeed!

    The original plan involved Stan and me "buddying up" for the trip to Arkansas, but a family emergency prevented me from going. Stan's great photos and text prove to me that he was the right man for the job.

    I appreciate you shouldering all the responsibilities, Stan, and look forward to meeting you and Kara sometime in the not-too-distant future.

    Thumbs up

    Great write up! How do I get the job of test firing the pistols?
    A few years ago I took a motorcycle ride to the Wilson shop (about three hours away) to drop off a pistol. With the Buffalo river and the Ozark mountains for scenery it is worth the trip if you have the time.

    Steve,

    I'm really sorry you were not able to make it, and I hope everything worked out okay on your end. We had a great time and look forward to doing it again. Hopefully, you'll be able to make it!

    Aww shucks guys, don't make me blush!

    You know, I asked John May how to get that job... he just laughed and said "you gotta be good... real good".

    I opted out!

    How come they didn't give you a sample gun? ;-) I would have begged.

    No, groveled...
