    Found this scratched up Hillsdale TRS that will make a nice truck gun. :) What do you think?

    ^^ Oh, yeah - toss that baby in the glove compartment and forget about it. Maybe let it rattle around in the toolbox in the truck bed.

    (LOL - awesome LB!)

    What kind of truck do you have? My truck isn't good enough to carry that!
    Nice gun, really like it.

    That's a sweet find! I once found a crispy $1 bill but, ended up spending it. You should sell that to me.:grin:

    I would carry it, but only Glocks get left in the truck

    Good sir, I CAN NOT in good conscience allow that, that hideous chunk of metal be your truck gun!

    I will, for a limited time offer, buy it from you for a $250! Which I think is MORE than fair!
    Or I will trade you something more truck gun appropriate like a HighPoint 9MM! ;)

    All kidding aside, beautiful pistol!

    Thanks for the comments guys, but I hope you know I was kidding about it being a truck gun. Just having a little fun.

    I was thinking, throw it under the seat as the glove box will be the first place someone would look! It should be fine under there.

    I'm sure they are on a firearm like that but, got to ask. Are the grips real ivory? They sure have a nice patina to them that I like a lot. TW

    Well, there are dueling pistols and there are drooling pistols. You sir, have a drooling pistol in my books. I'd have to keep it well oiled!:grin:
