Outside our time frame, but I think many of you would be interested in the exploration of the greatest Naval "What if" of WW2.

You are a  good man,  Russ

Thanks Major

By the way.  The Tabby is Captain Jake Cutter (Jake), and the fuzz black ball is Samantha (Sam), and even though they claimed no involvement, they did demand pieces of the salmon. ??? ;D ;D ;D

Bought it.  It'll match well with my 5" Navy Arms Schofield.  Good use for my latest government check.  At least when the country is bankrupt my grandkids will have something of value.  The Navy Arms ones had the best Black Powder Bevel on the cylinder, and mine works well with Triple 7 in the CS case, and a 454190 with beeswax/olive oil in the grooves.

Navy Arms had the best box too.

Sad to say mine has been gone for many years now, but I do give some enjoyment to my wife (as we have no children of our our), by helping her current kids do things for her. (Shown below)

They made her favorite dinner of grilled Salmon, made a Mother’s Day Card on Hallmark software, and of course they denied any involvement in it all. ::) ::) ::)

Story, I think you've got it--thank you!  I've moved McChristian's book up a few in the "to read" list but it will be a while before I get a copy, so this really helped. 

I followed up on Googlebooks on your quote, and felt much better when I read the words "Unique to the Smoky Hill trail on the high plains of western Kansas was a type of bunker dubbed the 'prairie monitor'. . . "  About 15 years ago I hit every local historical museum I could find in KS, but hadn't seen mention of this before. 
 

1) You're welcome
and
2) Of course it was specific to your quest - note the 'Fort Hays' in the URL as part of the search terms.  8)

I see them show up on the usual internet sites occasionally. But there seems to be little interest in them. Everyone wants a Civil War Spencer, not these post war oddities. But me - I like the odd and unusual  ;D

Really interesting rifles. Of the 1100 manufactured must not be that many around the country.
