SIG Sauer Custom Works P320

Sig Sauer P320 in Shark Skin Holster

Although, I must admit that the absence of a hammer throws me off, I really love this gun. My black-on-black shark skin and ostrich paddle holster from The Southern Trapper arrived July 5th and I couldn't be more pleased.

"If you are involved in this hobby of collecting old guns, hopefully you'll find something useful or of interest here."

Bob Dylan wrote a lyric in a song that said something like, "if you're not busy being born, you're busy dying." After a health-scare a few years back, I began downsizing my collection. In the process I came to the realization that I didn't have to give up my hobby altogether. It was during this time that I developed a self-awareness that gave me the power to influence the outcome of my endeavor of downsizing.

There was this one gun in my collection that I had stored away and not seen in years. Why not pass it on for someone to enjoy as much as I once had?

Early on, I had decided to sell some, give some away and keep some. And as the weeks turned into months and the months turned into years, I developed more self-confidence in my decision making. I also began to understand things more from multiple perspectives. I'm talking about my own outlook, the viewpoint of potential buyers, and the perspective of my friends and family members that I gifted pieces to.

Bob Dylan also wrote a song that said "the times, they are a changing." Boy, are they! Rising concerns about mental health could possibly usher in new gun laws. If our leaders get it right, hopefully any new laws will protect the public without encroaching on our Second Amendment.

The Pandemic and Disruption of Health Services in 2020 & 2021 Resulted in a 15%-20% Higher Death Rate in the U.S.

Our society and even societal or cultural makeup is changing, and due to the COVID Pandemic many changes have accelerated at a rapid pace. What am I talking about? Take for example...

Workforce Makeup in 2018
  • Baby Boomers—born 1946 to 1964 – 29%
  • Generation X—born 1965 to 1980 – 36%
  • Millennials—born 1981 to 2000 – 35%
Workforce Makeup Today
  • Baby Boomers—born 1946 to 1964 – 6%
  • Generation X—born 1965 to 1980 – 35%
  • Millennials—born 1981 to 2000 – 35%
  • Generation Z—born 2001 to 2020 – 24%

The future of gun collecting is slowly passing from us Baby Boomers to the Gen Xers. Research describes them as active, happy, and achieving a work–life balance. Optimistically, I believe our hobby will be in good hands.
