    It is not a disease, it is not a disease, it is not a disease.

    It is an affliction. It is treatable.* It is not contagious.
    I walked into the tradin'post this aftrenoon. No small talk, no comment, just a 'hey where ya been?' And Ed, the retired military, retired State police, the retired Border Patrol fellow was muttering sorta under his breath, 'colt, colt, colt, colt.....'. Great. OK, I says, 'What?'.
    'we just took in a decent M1903. 'you (as always) walked right past it. We got a nice Python, too.' More on that later.
    So now there is another M1903 in the pile. Certainly no worse than any of the others, maybe a little better. 1923 mfg., incorrect mag, a little scrape mark on one of the OE grip panels, good bore & chamber, finish not bad for an old gun, a few dings but no major uglies, lots of nice blue, back & front strap gettin' bare, but all & all a decent one. I have a more correct mag in the parts bin. $422 OTD. I ain't complainin'. I gave more on the one I snagged 3 weeks ago. (correct mag.)...........

    Now, about the Python. 4" blue, good condition shooter, a little wear near the muzzle from what I could see wearing Goodyears, Pachmayer,? not original. Came in the same time yesterday, was placed SPF immediately. The money? $1199. Helluva deal for the lucky dude who jumped on it. I woulda bought it in a nanosecond.

    It ain't a disease, and I ain't crazy.
    That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

    * Treatment usually involves buyin' Colts.

    ps. Somebody stop me. Or not.

    Nope. C&R Trading Co. in Brunswick. Just over the Freeport/ Brunswick line on old rte. 1. They are in the old Dexter Shoe outlet building. It is the coolest shop in the area. On Saturdays, it is equivalent to goin' to the gunshow. You never know what will pop up. Often, a piece will get in the bound register and out again in a matter of minutes. I have shown up 5 minutes late on several occaisions. They observe strict BATFE regs., and reserve the right to decline any sale. You just have to appreciate an outfit like that. He has some excellent connections among collectors, sportsmen, LE, wholesalers, & regular customers. I have seen some equipment there that is never seen in circulation. Inventory fluctuates as with any small shop, but itis fluid with the season and times. They run regular handgun certification courses as well.
    I have never seen a Hawaii reg. in the parking lot, but some from all over the place. He does ship & transfer for guys in other places, and receives transfers for customers. The place is a genuine resource in a region where some things are hard to find.
    They are not about to make a fortune and retire on the back of the first sucker in the door. They pay the bills, make a little, and provide a great service to all their customers. I always get treated fairly and sometimes, unbelievably well.
    There is a 'yard sale' bin that gets replenished when someone offloads old gear or when a widow wants to clear out some gun stuff. Some amazing deals to be made if you are there when the boxes arrive.
    The $1199 Python slew me.........

    ps. There is a website that shows the place quite well. Just search C&R Trading and it will be there.

    I disagree, It most certainly is a disease And once infected its only treatable by acquiring more! There is no cure, of that I'm certain! Repeating to yourself "its not a Disease" Will only send yourself to the LOONEY Bin! Embrace It!
