Well, this could be a terrible thing. A new gun store opened up about a quarter mile down the road from my house. I stopped by today and over in the corner, well away from the black rifles and plastic guns was an ASM "1851" conversion in .44 Colt.
The tag said $280 and they took $250, threw in half a box of Black Hills ammo and two and a half boxes of brass.
Seems like a good deal. Finally...finally
I get to go shooting tomorrow!
