It was a beautiful day up here in Denver where my wife and I are attending the annual CGCA show. Of course this is a pure collector show, so there were lots of superb Winchesters and Colts; no black guns. My wife and I did a lot of visiting with other collectors that we've met along the collecting trail over the past 35 years; that's one of the best parts about a show like this.
However, at one point my wife turned to me and said; "you don't see a lot of young people here looking at the guns"! It's kind of true, most of the collectors of these guns are middle aged and old folks like me! Of course, old Colts and Winchesters aren't cheap, so folks that buy these guns usually are in established careers with decent incomes.
Today I bought a pretty nice 7 1/2 inch barrel Colt Single Action from 1902 chambered in 44-40; so it was a good day!!!!
