Hi Customers,

46 new old catalogs this month and just before the first snow we made a 1400 mile trip in four days during which we were fortunate enough to be allowed to borrow over 140 terrific old catalogs including many German treasures. You may see the list in Coming Soon but we have already prepared 18 for your pleasure and these are available in the general listings and Recent Additions pages. Please note that each catalog has its' own index of sorts at the bottom of each catalog page.

I have changed the entrance of the website to make it simpler for computer novices. Those of you who are more computer savvy can still select the old front page by going to the More Advanced Computer User link. Oh yes, I think I fixed the link problems in the last email- please let me know if they don't work for you.

Many thanks to all my writer friends who generously gave me write-ups in Guns and Ammo (October), Gun Digest 2007 and the Thompson newsletter this fall. I cannot tell you how much help that is for me; over one third of the retail price of my catalogs goes to advertising and any free publicity is a real boost. So please, please tell your friends about me so I can hold my prices and cut back on Ebay advertising and fees. The over $800 cost for a set of color ink cartridges is one thing but ad prices really hurt!

Another big thanks goes to all of you who have sent me your valuable catalogs to scan and return. I have never had a complaint about how I take care of these wonderful loans and every loan enhances our collection. This benefits every one of us and will for years to come, even those youngsters you have coming up who are not yet collectors and have no interest in history today. This wonderful treasury of our history belongs to them most of all.

Please keep your suggestions and corrections coming. I really appreciate them and remember to send me your old catalogs and share this wealth with all your collector friends.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Abby
