THANK YOU TO OUR CUSTOMERS, SUBSCRIBERS, and FRIENDS! I'm grateful to the many great fellow gun enthusiasts I've met in person, through correspondence, and online, whose patronage has enabled Eve & me to make our livelihood doing what we loved, raising our three sons, all of whom helped in the business, and getting them off to college. I'm grateful to Jennifer who has managed the OTS sales & made friends of our customers with grace, expertise and good humor. I'm grateful to the good folks at Kull Auction for turning our occasional firearms auctions into a regularly scheduled and professional national level operation. I'm grateful to NRA for hiring me to do the only job I could love more than my current one. And I'm especially grateful to Eve for her love and support, and the willingness of a life long Kansas Girl to move "back east" so I can take the museum gig.
Thank you all! - Jim
