Well gang, as of today, I have joined the likes of CactusJack, FRO, and Stokes. I am the happy owner of a fine Colt Carbine, (the one Stokes had for sale in the EE forum).
Thanks to Stokes for a good business deal.
I am so dang happy I could shout!
The rifle is in excellent shape, and I'm a VERY happy man!
Thanks again Eric!
