    Just this week bought a Spolar from Gene. Sale couldn't went any better. I was pleased with the loader and him. He even delivered it to my hotel so I didn't have to travel in snow to his home. Treated me nicely.

    Turns out that Bueno has a stubborn streak caused by "Blazer-itis". If you do not succeed with one Blazer, buy another and then exercise your perceived yappin rights on good old TS.com...

    He'll try it again, but with another Blazer and another Gene. Decent guy tho...

    MIA from daughters puker.

    Having fine wine just before traditional lobster boil on NY eve.

    Wish you all were here.

    Happy and productive 2013 to you all.

    "Happy New Year" to all the straight shooters, and those that miss a few birds now and then.
    Present company excluded, of course.

    I think Gene is out helping Feinstein get signatures for their gun ban petition.

    The angle the photo was taken the comb looks disproportionate, but it is not. It is just right.
    BTW: I try to buy all the few shotguns that I have used, but nearly new, and search the web for them. The Baronese I watched for a whole year, before the seller dropped his price, and I got a great deal.
    Been trading up and getting rid of guns I no longer shoot or need, like a FN SCAR .223 and others.

    You are a gentleman, thanks.
    I didn't know that Gene Nosco was a "dead horse", now I get it. I only joined T/S com, a few months ago,
    but really enjoy the fraternity and camaraderie in this cyber space.
    Gene is a proactive fellow, and he means well, and In think that whatever toes where stepped on, he deserves a break.
    PS: I am (also) editor for an internet periodical and a badged contributor for the Washington post.

    A distinguished Bro-mance indeed. With Bueno's "badge" and Chesty's Congressional Medal of Honor, maybe these two should get together and polish each other's medals.

    LOL. brings up a true story about "Chesty" Puller in the Nicaraguan campaign.
    Chesty Puller was taken prisoner by the Nicaraguan rebels, and was set to be shot by firing squad. The head honcho asked Chesty for his last request: Chesty answered back that after he was shot he didn't want his body to be buried, but instead left outside for the vultures to eat his corpse. Asked by the bandido why the hell he wanted such a strange request? Chesty answered:
    Just because I want the f...ken birds to fly out and then s..t all over you guys heads!!!!!!!
    The head bandido started laughing so hard at Chesty's remarks that he decided not to shoot him, and thought he was an OK guy, and later let him go.
    True story, so help me........maybe apropo.

    I got an incredible deal for the SO-5, much below 18K that I couldn't pass up, and the previous owner never fired it! The action is so tight, that I might to hire somebody to open it up and down for a whole day to smooth it out, and they are now retailing for about $27K.
    I met general Schwarzkopf at a sporting clays shoot where he was awarded a shotgun. He was quite a guy and very approachable, had not stomach for politicians, wimps, or brown nosers. We need a guy like that in the oval office, to get back some due respect, from the rest of the world.
    Like you said, I had a closet full of unused guns that I never shot, was paying insurance for, and decided to let them go for whatever, and now I am so happy with just few very nice guns, and they bring me such pleasure, and don't mind cleaning them at all. It's like caressing a beautiful woman, lol.
    And then when I croak, probably sooner rather than later, my daughters won't have to mess with selling a bunch of guns,lol.
