    Thank you Bill. As always I appreciate the information.

    I look forward to buying your book as a Christmas present for myself.

    Regarding the bayonet revolver, an old H&R catalog stated that H&R originaly intended them for export. But it did not say which export markets H&R targeted with their bayonet revolver.

    Likewise, this would make a most excellent stocking stuffer alongside a bottle of J.Walker Blue!

    I'm always entertained by your insights and knowledge Bill, thanks for all your efforts and I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the book.
