Recycled Packaging Shipping keeps shipping costs to a minimum.
The faster I (try) to go .....
I am sure the heat of late has had something to do with the lack of getting all things that I want done ... done. Or maybe that is just "retirement".
In any event, I will be striving over the next several weeks (the Alaska trip with Great Grandson Chris, his Grandparents -- Ron and T, notwithstanding) to get about 10 of my antique (read that "beautiful old reminders of days gone by - wall hanger") rifles, shotguns and pistols onto the auction side of the website. There are some very special pieces, and they will all sell without reserve once the opening bid is met.; Some Damascus twist barrels, Full or half octagon barrels, some identifiable as to prior use and owners, some with tiger oak, antique walnut, special engraving ... lots of history and fun, both.
So keep checking back and I will get to work. Best wishes to all
