I have a question. Does it seem like the preference leans heavy towards the Bisley model ? Seems a lot were shipped to Arizona mines and Tucson area.

I thought I would bump this to the top to remind everyone that I'm still actively looking for new listings to add. This week I have been able to add three new entries, two which were long flutes.
