    When I was young my grandfather had a 1st Generation Colt Model 73. He kept it on a table in his den. There were several homemade cartridges on the table with it. He had lead and molds in his garage workshop. He told me he always carried the Colt with him going from the farm to town - it was 10 miles. His brother stole it and sold it. Shortly thereafter he gave all his other guns to my dad. Winchester Model 21 with 2 sets of barrels, Marlin Model 39 (an original with the octagon barrel) and a Winchester Model 12.

    So, I guess my .38 special wadcutter reloads from early-mid 1970s missed their chance at 15 minutes of fame.
    :banghead: -but congrats on your acquisition.

    Funny, I see a thumb being blown off of a hand. Be careful with that stuff.
