Billie enjoyed shooting his old Colt's. In the late 1970's we managed a gun shop that had progressive re-loading machines and an indoor range so shooting an hour every day was a common occurrence. One morning Billie opened the "not for sale" showcase that held a group of his favorite shooters and pulled out his 7-1/2" New Service Target .44. He disappeared to the reloading room and returned with a small plastic tub which held a couple dozen .44 special re-loads. I recall thinking that he wasn't in the reloading room long enough to reload a half box. Instead, he found these .44 rounds already loaded and figured he'd save some time and shoot these. He would never again shoot a reload that he didn't load himself.
