From Longtime Reader MurphyAZ:
“I have this uneasy feeling that you might be sliding into a fire (flood?) sale. I hope that is not the case, and that all is well in Kim’s Land.”
Bless you, old son, for your concern; but let me assure you that this is absolutely not the case.
The plain fact of the matter is that as with many Olde Pharttes, I am getting tid of stuff that I don’t, can’t or don’t want to use anymore: the bass guitar gear was a “can’t”, the 16ga shotgun was a “don’t” — or, given that I plan on getting a 20ga to start doing sporting clays soon, “won’t want to use anymore” — and if the sale of said items can get me a “free” CZ G2 Bobtail:
…then so much the better.
Just to hammer the point home: we have emerged from the past four months of flood disaster and theft of two guns with our finances more or less intact, thanks in no small part to the unbelievable generosity of my Loyal Readers, blessings be upon you all.
I even managed to acquire a replacement S&W Model 65 along the way. (Range report to follow shortly.)
So once again, thank you (and anyone else who may have felt the same way) for your concern, but I’m fine.
