Ran across this while I was trying to get safrai to let me on Dan Wesson. I'm from east central okla
And I like all kinds of older rifles and handguns. I tend to collect Dan Wesson, s&w and a few Rugers.
I saw your new member into and noticed that you are located in east central Oklahoma. I'm SW of D/FW about 30 miles, but both sides of my family came from the Clinton-Weatherford area. When I was younger and lived in Tulsa, my parents took me to the Firearms Museum in Claremore (it was still in the Hotel back then), and I knew that my future would be about firearms.
A friend from later college years, whom I treasure and adore, lives in Claremore. We drove there for her wedding, and I got a brief but edifying look at your part of the world. I thought it was very pretty. I saw some "built in the side of a hill" residences that intrigued me, though I only saw them from the road.
