    Welcome!

    Hey, can you do me a favor? There's this guy in Salina who sells holsters under the name "lunker" on gunbroker. Could you track him down and burn his outhouse?

    Nothing special about the FDE (Flat Dark Earth) colored frame. I am just fond of the color and would like to have one. Depending on condition and # mags that come with it, prices range from $350 to $525 from what I have seen.

    Yes, I do. We have a 1K head stocker/feeder yard. That is my third job, aside from being the county agent and a dad. My avatar is my cattle brand, a smiling B. :)

    Wow! That is fantastic! Can I visit?

    When you are playing county agent, do you dress like Hank Kimball and drive a Bronco roadster? I always wanted to be him when I was a kid - Doing nothing but driving around and messing with people.

    I eat a lot of meat, and I love watching Hopalong Cassidy films. Does that count? I don't have an SAA, I guess that counts against me. Shucks, guess I'm as welcome to the rancher party as last year's haystack.
