    image.jpeg image.jpeg .....my favorite shop owner calls and says his friend has some guns for sale, " they are old".....I meet up with the elderly man ( late sixties), seems a distant relative just passed away ( her husband, a retired general had a huge collection, died in the early eighties)....and he has to disperse the household......opens a closet that has not been opened since the General's passing....ever see 35 years of dust on a gun?....it looks like brown rust..under that dust was a pristine 6-1918 M1917 Winchester, blued, escaped overhaul after WW1, and a pristine French Berthier.....this place seems to have slowed down since I took an extended vacation,....start cranking up the gun porn, I will be checking.
