Notes from the gun shop...

What a day. It seemed as if every fella that heard the boss man had gone to the NRA "convention" had to call today to ask a question. Then the instant on-line check system went down for several hours. Good news was that when it came back on line approvals were instantaneous.

I did manage to convince one doubter that the .223 Remington can kill a coyote and thus sell one of the new Mini-14s.

We got 20 1 lb bottles of IMR 4350 last Monday and they are all gone. I sold the last one today and this at $27.99 each.

I had one fella come in looking for a .357 Magnum Marlin 1894 Cowboy but he never could get the nomenclature down. They are still cataloged but I have doubts that we can get one. He looked at the standard 1894C that we have (we have 3) and while doing so told us about his previous carbines. He'd had a .45 Colt which was apparently an Italian repro of some type and it was a real killer. Then he thought that he'd get a step up and got a .44-40. It "kicked like a mule". This is the sort of show you have to pay to see elsewhere.
