I grew up in and near Amarillo.  My grandparents moved to Amarillo in 1926, because my Grandfather was in the trucking business and Borger needed supplies.  Why did you all pick Borger.  Back in the day it was called Borger in the Daytime and Booger at night.

I guess I didn't answer your question.  I'm thinking I'll pull the pin just after the first of the year for tax reasons but I don't have a firm date right now.  Cate and the dog have been down there more than they're here in the last month or two.
Outstanding!  I'm looking to pull the pin about the first of February.

There is a lot of history in the area.  Caprock Canyons State Park has the remnants of the Southern Buffalo herd.  Many of the Red River Wars engagements took place in Hutchinson and Grey Counties.

Somewhere in my stuff, I have a picture of Matt Kimes sitting on the porch of the police station in Borger.

Another place I need to visit.  And they'll be someone to see when I get down that way.  But a good 5 years before I can do any pin pulling.   :'(

I've only got one (1) New Service, a 1916 british contract .455, that was converted to .45 Colt sometime along the way.  Last of the straight barrel, 1909 configuration.  One of my sweeter shooting DA's.

My only .455, that was converted to .45 Colt is a S&W
