"You know, Ben I'm not sure what they are worth now, the gun biz being kind of upsidedown what with our ailing economy. I think if you had a good one at a gunshow for $250 that it would likely sell and if for $350 it would…"
"That's a #1½. It's a 5-shooter. The #1 was a .22, six-shot. Yours is built on the same frame as the #1, but carries 5 because the cylinder was too small for 6 chambers. I have a #2, which has a slightly…"
Hello! I apologize, it is by coincidence that I sent you a friend request because of your screenname. I am afraid your photo is too small for me to recognize you.
But yes, I'll be in San Antonio once again this March, but I am afraid my father will not be able to make it out, unfortunately. Still, I cannot wait to see everyone again! March is always the highlight of my year.
My apologies, Ray! I finally put two and two together when I saw your sharpshooting wife's account on here and your url address! I have a few friends who live in the U.K, as well. Yes, indeed, it is good talking to you again. I hope all is well with you and yours and will see you in March.
Sadly, finances have gotten the best of us since last March. But, I am confident my dad will join us again in the future.
I will be in Texas from March 3rd to the 11th, but I will be in San Antonio from the 4th to the 8th. The rest of the time, I will be looking for apartments in the Arlington, Texas area. I hope to move there sometime this year.
As for the shootfest, I share your thoughts exactly. But I am afraid, due to the entire fall out with Ned over the Alamo forums, that Mr. Hinnant is ignoring me. I truly hope this isn't the case. Unfortunate, if it is true.
Otherwise, I look forward to seeing you and your wife again. March will be an amazing time, with Joan Headley's party, the Alamo Symposium, the reenactments, and the Alamo Plaza demonstration that is planned for the morning of March 6th, after the dawn ceremony.
I do have some copies. It is not a book, but rather a booklet--80-plus pages if I remember correctly without digging them out of storage. It deals almost exclusively with the Sandbar Fight, and much of that information was transferred into my Alamo Story book. If you want a copy of Mr. Bowie With a Knife, I usually sell them for $10.00 plus postage, but since your postage is going to be so high, I will lower the price a few dollars. Send me your mailing address.
Hi Jack, I would love a copy, that is very kind of you to offer to lower the price, but there is no need. We will be in San Antone this March, and hope to meet you again, so if you could fetch a copy along to Alamo Plaza some time over the High Holy Days period, I would be very grateful. Will you be there at some time?
