    A couple neat letters from Colt

    Although I was pretty sure how the guns would letter, was excited to see that my suspicions were correct.

    Neato! Looks like you landed a couple of very worthy Colts.

    You happen to have a picture of the Dragoon? That is awesome, having a gun that belonged to Elmer Keith.

    I actually have 3 of his. The 2 guns pictured below and his Champlin Haskins 338/378 KT that he shot his 50th and last bull elk with, along with a number of antelope and mule deer.

    Two premier gun writers and Americans. I would be very proud to own those guns. Congratulations on being their owner. Now go out and shoot them!

    I was gonna say, before reading all this, was that Elmer's Dragoon was undoubtably blowed up.

    Well wow! - that looks like you struck it rich with them both! It's letter like those that always make me think of lettering every one of those strays brought in.

    Very nice score for sure. This reminds me that I've got a S&W 27-2 that I need to letter since it supposedly belonged to a gun scribe out of Arizona. Probably a long shot but the gun's so nice it's worth a try. Congratulations.
