Salesmen Beware! (Nov, 1952)

Salesmen Beware!

This photo of the model Winchester (p. 146, Feb. ’52 S&M) was taken with an antique box camera and I couldn’t get as close as I’d like to. I used a powdered graphite method for the blued steel effect on the wooden model and it sure made the breech shine in the fading sun. I am now ambitiously looking forward to the Colt .44 as the next wooden gun project. That sign at the entrance of the driveway really works—no more bother with insurance, magazine, or other salesmen.

You shouldn’t have tipped your hand, Charlie. Next thing you know you’ll have some salesman trying to sell you powdered graphite . . .
