Lovely rifle Jim!

BTW: I recently reread 300 Years of Tradition and wanted to thank you again for your part in making that exhibit happen. It was a incredible display and it's a shame it was under publicized and under attended.
Fortunately, I was at the opening and wish there had been name tags during the day because I missed the opportunity to meet many really interesting people because of my shyness and reticence, including you? We did have name tags at the dinner reception, were you there? I don't remember meeting?
One of the finest moments of my career was seeing my Low Wall displayed in a case with Ed Weber's Sharps '77.

Was it shyness and reticence Steven, or were you simply drunk on your ass like you obviously were about a year ago when you called me from (406) 222-9377 in Livingston, Montana, screaming vulgar personal threats. You were slurring your words quite a bit, and I assume you didn't have a stroke.

If I ever get the chance to meet up with you, I won't need any name tags to give you the opportunity to see if you are willing and able to back up those physical threats. I'll just look for a paunchy little fag. I think it is more likely that you will piss yourself, coward.

Is it time for some more free advertising of your over-priced classes little worm? Or did you log in to finally pony up some money for all of the other free advertising you used this forum for?

Just my personal opinion, as always, based upon your cheap-ass and cowardly actions.

Steven,
By way of an update. Evan Maurer is now living in California. Corrine Wegener is now working at the Smithsonian. Joe Horse Capture is still at the M.I.A. I had one of the large hallway placards hanging in my shop since the exhibit closed. Last fall I sent it to Mark Silver for him to enjoy.
Jim

Thanks Jim~
No surprise about Corry, I worked with her early on and she was extraordinary! Smart, efficient, enthusiastic and accomplished. I missed not meeting her and always wondered if the exhibit would have been more successful in recognition and attendance if she hadn't had to go off to war?
I saw Mark Silver at the Antique Show in Las Vegas a few years back showing a couple of remarkable longrifles, we talked for quite a long time. It was great to see him and his work!
I checked out availability online for the 300 Years catalog/book and they are available, some even less than new price.
The exhibit certainly was a long time coming as it was a true shame that John Bivins didn't live to see it... I guess you were like a cornerstone that allowed the rest of the pieces to fit into place.
I recent resold the Bertuzzi double gun of mine that was also shown bringing all of this back to my mind and causing me to revisit that unique experience!
Thanks again!

This is mine. It was the subject of a gun Digest article I wrote many years ago. The engraving was executed by Fred Bowen. The casehardening was by Dave Noren and the receiver base and some other parts were fashioned by Bill Schultz.

When I was a serious collector of British single shot rifles this Farquharson was my favorite.

Hard to beat a best quality Gibbs sporting rifle......

What caliber is Joel?

I just picked up a very nice little Gibbs action that will become a dandy little .303 British. Similar vintage to that action from the look of things.
