I just discovered ‘popular highlights’ on my kindle books. This option shows you what passages other readers have highlighted in their copy.
I like that line also, by the way.
And on a side note, have you ever LOOKED at the prices of Colt Peacemakers? Good heavens!
They ain’t cheap for something that’s almost a 150 year old design! They even cost more than most 1911’s that require far more machining and intricacies to build and operate.
What’s really fascinating, is that when they came out they could be bought for a single gold piece THEN and NOW. In 1873 they sold for $17.50, which was about a month’s labor, and a gold eagle (1 ounce gold piece) was worth about $20. Today, they sell for around $1799 according to Colt’s website and a 1 ounce gold piece is worth $1805 today.
Anyways, I want the 5.5 inch barrel version.
Colt, if you’re reading this… Hook me up.
