    I'm looking for a book - Memory loss

    You get to a certain age and you find it impossible to find a tool. After spending too much time in fruitless searching you give up and just buy a new one. Of course when you bring the new tool home the original tool is laying on the dining room table.

    Now to what I can't find. I had a soft cover book, more like a booklet, that listed every variation year by year in the Colt SAA in chronological order . B&W pictures of somewhat poor quality showing the change. It would show address changes, font changes, caliber introductions, etc,etc. It was immensely useful in determining if a SAA was original. Well I've been looking for at least 6 months and have decided to just buy another one. It wasn't expensive but I can't remember the name or the author. Can anyone help?

    Are you thinking of 'Colt Peacemaker yearly Variations' by Keith Cochran?

    It never, ever fails. I posted this less than 3 days ago after being unable to find the book for maybe a year. When Chaffee told me what I was looking for I went right out an ordered it. This morning pulling another book out of the bookshelf out falls Colt Peacemaker yearly Variations' by Keith Cochran.

    Why I have at least two of every tool known to man.

    It was hiding between Sixguns by Keith and Cartridges of the World. Go figure. Should have been between Taffin and Scovill.

    You ALPHABETIZE!?! - My God, the dedication…

    I basically go by Xerox box - I like the hunt ;-D

    I once explained 'scrounging' and 'acquisition' ( time-honored Army activities) thusly - 'If One's Good - Two's Twice As Good - Three's Optimal, Because It Gives You Trade Stock'...

    I don't alphabetize but my bookcases are all arranged by subject matter and the like. For instance, my gun books are arranged by manufacterer and then by the age of the guns. ie: Colt books go from percussions on up from left to right. Old west books go by state histories, cowboy, Indian Wars, gunfighter, biographies and general subject matter, etc. Oh and I usually do keep all the same authors together. This way, when i'm looking for a particular book, I know right where it is. The problem with having so many is that I sometimes forget i have a certain book and end up buying another when I'm out of town.
