Mike - sorry to hear of your "near miss" . . . I've been in the same spot a couple of times in regards to an OP 4". It's at the top of my list . . . just need to be int he right spot at the right time. I've got a Army Special (38) with a 6" barrel (made 1910) and it really needs a "brother" with a "shorter tail".
Hopefully you'll run across another one when the stars and planets are all aligned in your favor . . . .
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
