Old Gun Factories

Interested in guns and history?

I originally authored this post a year ago, but I accidentally deleted it and had to republish it (with the help of Google cache).

Let me know what you guys think

Those pics and historical snippets were very interesting.

However, who is "The History Girl"?

side story....traveling throughout Texas in a past life, I often stopped at various gun shops just to look and see if anything interesting was for sale.
Some time passed before I returned to a gunsmith's shop in East Texas to find the shop gone.
Spoke with a neighbor and the old boy had died.
His Daughter came from out-of-state to handle his funeral and his estate.
Not being a "gun person", a fire sale of inventory was exhausted quickly.
Lathes and othe machine tools sold for scrap prices, anything left over went to a rented dumpster.
Made me want to cry.....and make my will for my small inventory.
