Jeff, Tendler's Sales, 913 D Street Northwest, now under the FBI building. Griffith Stadium was a bus ride from Rockville to the District line, then a short trolley ride down Georgia Avenue to the stadium. The whole trip was about 35 cents in the fifties. Most of the time, I would go to the stadium with my dad, but occasionally, I would bus it and meet him there.

All I really know is that after all the shooting that had been done with it, all that remained of all the ammo that was made especially for the gun with special head stamps was one original box of 25 with the exception that when the gun was offered to me one of those original shells had been removed and replaced with a 20 gauge shell. It was a DHE and no I didnít buy it.... the price wasnít realistic for a gun with a lot of wear and nowhere to buy ammo for it.

I honestly don’t know where the gun is today and I don’t know which issue the article appeared in.

Bill— thanks for the fun reply. Tendlers was an amazing place. As I remember we rode in on DC Transit buses (yellow and green?) to Constitution (and 9th?) and catch a trolley to the Ball Park. I usually met my father at home after the school had called him. Youth was wonderful. Jeff
