THE LOCAL GUN SHOW THAT IS HELD ABOUT EVERY 2 TO 3 MONTHS IS IN TOWN THIS WEEKEND. MY UNCLE (TODAY IS HIS 57TH BIRTHDAY) DECIDED TO DO SOME PRICE CHECKING FOR A SINGLE ACTION 22 REVOLVER AND ASKED ME TO COME ALONG AS I HAVE PURCHASED AT LEAST ONE BEFORE:cool: HE QUICKLY NOTICED THE PRICES ARE KEEPING UP WITH THE TIMES.

THERE WERE A FEW COLTS BUT NOT MANY.. A .22 NEW FRONTIER CAUGHT MY EYE . 6" BARREL. I LOOKED IT OVER WITH ANOTHER FRIENDLY FELLOW ALSO LOOKING AND LISTENING. ASKING $550 +8% TAX. GOOD SHAPE BUT I PASSED. I POINTED OUT THE MISSING MAG CYLINDER (AND CYLINDER BOX) AS IT HAD A MAGNUM BARREL, NO PAPERWORK, .. 2 PIECE TAN BOX WAS A TESTAMENT TO WHAT SCOTCH TAPE COULD DO.. AND FAKE LABEL OF COURSE.
THE SELLER LOOKED AT ME AND SAID "UH.. YOU ARE A COLT FORUM MEMBER AREN'T YOU! " JOKING.. I just got the blank stare and he started talking to the stranger next to me. The stranger that listening to what I told him about the gun and then did buy it. It was the only single action Colt in the place.
I guess the price wasn't too off queue, but I want all the original extras now and it is obtainable thanks to the Forum members that have sold me some fine guns for very good prices.

Reminds me of my last gun show.A seller was claming to be selling a Bankers Special that is "all original."I took 1 look and said You may be misinformed but this gun has been reblued,it is not original.He barked"How can you tell?".I said if you have a few minutes I will happily show you.He pulled up a chair and school was in session.In the end he thanked me and said"Should have known better than to call out a guy wearing a Colt Tee Shirt @ a gun show."
