Re: DITTO PHONEY $250.

Agree with Leon's comments. Should say "REPRODUCTION" or "REPLICA" in the listing, not in the accompanying fine print. The magic marker added to the bottom of the can could easily be removed with the right cleaner. The seller did update the listing to indicate it's a different can underneath. Nevert...

The zip is a zip and the ring is not.
Are you sure about that?

Re: LETS SEE YOU FAVORITE FIREARM

My Uncle had something similar when we were kids. He put a shotgun shell "blank" in the cannon and attached a line so he could fire it from several feet away. The explosion was so loud that the neighbor's dog literally dropped dead (probably from a heart attack). Exercise caution.

Re: Keith Belcher's auction at the blue gray

Nothing. That was a separate, unrelated question in the MEMBERS ONLY section. Similar to the Grenke auction, I'll probably wait for the catalog price to be reduced 50% or more (I got the Grenke catalog for FREE), or just view the online auction listings once they're posted. Thanks for caring.

Re: Keith Belcher's auction at the blue gray

So, under the "Gentleman's Disagreement" gag order, we cannot mention or talk about any eBay listings. Meanwhile, this auction is being openly discussed and PROMOTED by Rusty Bunch Officers and members. Ironic? Inconsistent? Hypocritical? All the above?
