    How far do YOU go? Alias and Story

    My alias is easy. My favorite TV Western was Cheyenne. My second was Lawman. But over time I had put these heroes of the small screen aside. My wife had over the decades correspondet with Clint Walker, and eventually phone calls and visits. In the 70s I started collecting M1 Carbines along with having ads in couple gun related magazine, and during this time got a letter asking if I had seen ever or had a 1916 Colt Army Special in .41 LC, seeing my ad for military firearms. The letter was signed J. Russell with a phone number. Well happens that there was a pawn shop in area that had one in almost perfect condition and not re-blued. I called the number up, and told J Russell we had one in local pawn shop. He asked if I trusted him and would I purchase it or put a down payment on it for him. He was in Indiana visiting friends and would drive over, asking my address. I said I would, (if he didn't follow through, it would be in my collection, or a future trade item). Surprise the next day when a Ford Thunderbird drove down our lane and out stepped John Russell, the Lawman. After coffee at our kitchen table, and small talk we headed to pawn shop were Mr. Russell made necassary paper work to have the pistol sent to his dealer. Mr. Russell was a ardent firearm collector, shooter, and hunter. We continued keeping in touch until his passing, and was able to get together over the decades many times, just not enough. So, when it came time to pick an alias, Cheyenne was my first choice, taken. Then asked if Marshal Troop was available, it wasn't. Now you know the whole, and complete story. MT Just to add: Mr Russell was a wise investor and got me on the road on how to invest. Me and the Judge at the 1st State match in St Augustine, had a good conversation on Mr Russell. The Judge also knew him personally.

    With Medical Records to show proof. MT
  5. If you lived closer, I would have considered trading my extra set of matching stainless Ruger  SA numbered seq. pistols with original red box and papers. (I bought 2 sets, 1 as backups). They sell with tax over 1600.00 today. For your Garand. I have 6 Garands now and 39 Carbines.

    Good luck in finding your wants.  MT

    For an early "B" western, and possible considered by many the best Trio western series. The story is actually good. MT
  7. Interested in cash still? As to trades, all I have at the moment to sell or trade s a Ruger SA 5 3/4 .22 hardly fired. But if cash and interested in an offer, I can make one. Live in Jacksonville and have a &R License so can be shipped direct. 

    My E-Mail is   m[email protected]

    Lot easier to get ahold of me that way. MT

    One western I looked forward for decades until finally the Western Channel showed it a few times, haven't seen it since, always looking to watch it again, and again. It's not, and never been available in DVD or Video tapes. But you can catch it on YouTube but have to pay a couple bucks to watch it. Dana Andrews in "Three Hours to Kill". If you get a chance, take a chance and watch it. MT
