Ahh, I was standing behind you in line waiting for opening.

Chris, are you saying YOU are the guy in the orange shirt with the "short" hair?

Were all the SGs sporting USGI instead of that loathsome orange birch commercial stuff?

Were the Carbine mags in brown paper or red cellophane wrap? $15 each?

No I'm the guy next to him in the hat silly! Guess it does looked like I worded it that way! haha Mags were in brown gooey paper $15 each. NO some SG's were in chocolate birch. The stocks looked like the belonged on some of the Correct Grades!

Different trophies which, I assume, are (were?) awarded at the National Matches.

Chris,
e-store confirms 5.79 gem coming my way.
When you called I was dropping a transmission...None of the dots were connecting.
Can't thank you enough!
We all need to make a trip there soon. The South Store looks better than the Smithsonian.

Thanks Chris for picking mine also. Hope you enjoyed Mc'D's. Triple thanks for all you do. Can't wait to see what you got. Half the fun is waiting on the "BWT". Thanks again, needed "winnie" to have all the mfgs, can't wait. Drywash.

everyone has to let their own conscious be their guide; but I certainly hope that most (if not all) are providing more than the modest $20 "fee" requested. This is a 'gift' to have your items hand selected and to receive them the follwing week instead of waiting several (weeks, months, etc).

Thank you Sir.

Of course, what a joy you must get spending a day buying thousands and thousands of dollars worth of some of this Country's most historical and finest militaria. It's a win-win for all involved (if the consumer provides a 'proper' stipend for his services)

As an outsider who didn't know who he was or what he was doing, I can vouch for the fact that he was spending a lot of time, and paying a very close eye, to selecting rifles for many of you.

There was a wide range of quality in the rifles that were in stock yesterday, and I'm quite confident that whatever you all receive in the mail reflects the very best (and the very closest to whatever it was you requested) of what was available.

Wish I'd known...I didn't have anything better to do (I was mostly just visiting the SS for fun), I would have gladly helped.

Great work!
