    Joni,
    I really like it. We have made trades before (K-22 Masterpiece's).

    I think that you need to get it to David Carroll or one of the auction people (RIA, Morphy, Amoskeag, or Carol Watson's Orange Coast Auction's).

    It's no doubt a very rare and beautiful piece of history.

    Stunning! Komifornia has saved me again. Someday...my vote is that you keep it.

    Go shoot a box before you sell it. You may be very pleasantly surprised.

    Thanks, I have others to shoot and just don't feel the need to shoot this one. Besides, as mentioned before 357 muzzle blast often gives me a bad headache.

    Let me add: I took these photos with my call phone and did nothing to the gun to make it look it's best. It's not waxed for appearance.

    How or why did all these folks have some inkling to save the Box and the packing paper.....My 686 came in a cardboard box, my Mod 19....Years ago the model 39 was like new and in the box....If I had kept every box I would have needed a shed just for the boxes.

    Box storage is sometimes a problem but I found a solution.

    Put it back in the safe , pleeeeeeze.

    Beautiful gun Lynnie. I can only imagine the stories in the history.

    If I owned it, I would on every Sunday, unwrap it and stare at it with a fine cigar and a glass of Black Label... Heck I might even break out the Blue Label.

    I think this one belongs with you.

    I seriously doubt it's going anywhere and it's already back with the others. It sits between a 1928 Colt Shooting Master 38 and a S&W Transitional 38-44 Outdoorsman.

    If one of our fine members should decide they just can't live without it, it's easy enough to take out again.

    I'm getting older, it's time to begin some thinning out.
    I know, we all say that. We're addicts, right?

    My timing on this one may have been poor given the election and the stock market.
    It's been returned to the back of a safe but if someone gets serious about it, it's easy to dig out again.
    Thanks everyone for the great comments.
