NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

John Dillinger’s Remington Double Derringer


James of Hell in a Handbasket emailed the tip on this story about John Dillinger’s Remington Double Derringer going up for auction. They expect it to go for somewhere around $45,000. Judging from the photo, the piece is not in exquisite condition but provenance does command premium prices. The auction is on July 25th so there is still time for you to prepare your bids; I’m about $44,999 short of cash so I’ll be sitting this one out.
