Yes, it has been fun. Everyone should have at least one old .22 caliber revolver. Funny thing...... Those old H&R firearms used to be considered junk. . . . . just cheaply made users. However, as time goes on, an interesting fact seems to be happening with them. These were made when Americans still had pride in everything we made. Looking closely at the under-appreciated H&R pieces from post-WWII and you can see even they were made with pride. I've been watching them for the past few years and they are rising in price on the auction sites now. Not everyone can grab a $3500 - $6000 and up Colt Python, but these H&R pieces are a viable way to get into the history of our earlier offerings from our country. It's fun and inexpensive too!

Eric: When did you become old?
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

I guess when I turned 70 a while back. Then again, perhaps I have another ten years to go before I'm "old" at 80. 

80. . . . The new 70.  lol

Have a great 4th of July Weekend coming up folks! 

Summer is here!  Enjoy it!

Thanks, Eric, but we will have to wait until November this year in Houston to enjoy outdoor activities. It is even too hot to go to the range this summer. I don't believe in global warming but they are making a good case in the southwest this year.

Well tracker, I guess you'll have to save your range time for the Fall. Stay indoors with the air conditioning on and enjoy a good book and a beverage for now.
