July 1st Update- Yesterday I attended another auction in Indianapolis. No A/C in the Auction 'Barn', but several large fans kept the air moving and provided a measure of comfort in the 100+ degree weather. Turnout was pretty good with a little over 250 folks registering for bids. I took Janet and Grandson Chris to the last one and purchased 9 handguns, most of which I have parted with as of now....This time Janet declined the honor, and stayed home. I wish she had come along, as the whole pricing/bidding structure of this auction was quite a bit "Lower" than the one two monthes ago. Many items went quite 'cheap'.
I will add some photos of the "Good Stuff" later today or tomorrow, but I will tell you I came home with 17 (seventeen) new additions and one very nice 6-gun oak gun cabinet.... and spent less than I did on the May Auction.
Details to follow but here are a couple of the "Highlights"
1. Ruger Blawkhawk 44 magnum, 4 and 5/8" barrel, Chrome Plated, Fake Pearl Grips with John Wayne image in each grip.
2. The "Yellow Rose" 22 caliber revolver, single action, 6 shot, 24 karat Gold Plated, 4 inch barrel, has 22 magnum extra cylinder, Italian.
3. Hawes (German), Chief Deputy, 44 magnum, 7.5 barrel, case-hardened frame, Single Action "Cowboy" style, w/ western-style cowhide belt and holster-(doesn't fit me!)
4. Four 22 revolvers of various types, 2 Mossey 500's, a 12 and a 20 gauge, one with slug barrel and smooth bore, 2 Escort Home-defense 12 gauge pump shotguns, one Ruger 10-22, and a few others of interest to me.
It was a real fun day. I even got an oak gun cabinet that matches - pretty well- our bookcases. So it was a great day and very productive.
