According to my calculations, Rudy has about six more years to do on that chain gang.

The No. 4 should definitely go in one of the “Commonwealth” portions of the display, but a Sten would also be good …. (If either the No. 4 or the Sten are Long Branch production, that would be ideal for the Canadian.)

First car was a Karmann Ghia, floor shift. Second car was a Studebaker Lark, 4 on the column.

I taught my wife to drive on a floor shift Datsun pick-up. She'd only driven automatics up until then.

Hello The Camp,
     My Bis. Vaquero shoots schofields fine- it is 5years old, so not sure if this is germane to the question.

Well, I got to work and my sub was already there, seems the supervisor had thought I wanted to take today off in exchange for working last Saturday. So I thought-that's a great idea! So here I am at home, on a sunny, mid 40's Friday.

When I was in the Army, as a motor pool mechanic, they had me teach some of the drivers how to drive a stick. There was a big gravel parking lot out behind motor pool row, took them out there in an M-151 Jeep. Some of them had grown up in the city, and never even learned to drive before Uncle Sam wanted them to. One girl was excited to get to learn to drive a "boy" car. She said automatics were "girl" cars and sticks were "boy cars".

I took my Drivers test in 1956 in my Dad's van. He did not own a car at that time. It had a 4-speed floor shift but you only used the top three gears. No directionals so you had to hand signal.

PLUS ONE for Abilene you betcha.  I'm no USFA Ex Spurt by any means but USFA didn't make Stainless Guns (best of my knowledge).  Well over priced too.

They look to be in the white....polish isn't that good, polished white looks sorta like SS.....they are Uberti parts guns, but then their American made guns were to Uberti spec.......always wondered why you'd go to the exspense and trouble of tooling up to build a Colt type SAA, then use Italian specs......But, they seem overpriced for what they are, but you see USFA's on GunBroker all the time at prices higher than you can find a Colt for.....at least asking prices.
