Yes , two years ago the only time Iíve been there I was carrying two back to the tent and it was a handful . Not to mention I had no idea where ďThe tentĒ was , walked thru all the sales tents and asked several dealers where the Parker display was and they didnít know . Two 10ís in leg o mutton cases got heavy after walking around trying to find the tent for a good bit longer than if I knew where I was going and walked straight to it .

I'm sure both of you guys have seen the dozens of cars parked at the Dove Field, which is feet from the PGCA tent. Craig Larter has parked there. You can park there too. When the parking attendant tells you that you have to park on the "road", tell him you want to go to the Dove Field and he will let you drive there. You will be within a one minute or less walk to the PGCA tent.

Sold a P Webley to Mike back in 2012. He still has it. The stock was cracked. Somehow, it got better. GB 844981553.

A few pictures from today of 83621 in natural light, pretty amazing gun!! Light cleaning with a Frontier pad, still has some brown tint but the CC does show.

Just to close to loop on this gun. As I stated it had a crack at the wrist from the top tang down to the trigger guard on one side. The gun was originally fitted with the hickory rod and that keep it together. I did not want to soak the wood to de-oil it to glue the crack (and lose the original finish and character) so Brian Dudley suggested a carbon fiber 3/8" rod be inserted up through the pistol grip cap past the crack, glassed in place. I couldn't be happier the gun is now completely stable with zero movement.
