It’s worth mentioning that my first foray onto the internet was about 1999- and the second place I found was ‘The Campfire’, a forum inhabited by fine gentlemen like John Taffin, Jim Taylor, Lee Jurras and the like. At this late date, I can’t recall whether Taylor or Taffin was running it at that moment; but the changes were seamless and the fire was always warm. The background was the color of weathered leather, decorated with worn Colt Single Actions and the melody of ‘Seven Spanish Angels’ playing in the background. The highest compliment I can pay those gentlemen is to say that couldn’t have arrived in a better place on the web.
So welcome to my Campfire. Down through history, the campfire has been a place to spin yarns, enjoy the camaraderie of friends and family and maybe enjoy a snort of Ol’ Stumpblower before turning in for the night. But more than anything else it is a place to talk after the day’s stresses are set aside. We’ll discuss a lot of topics which are important to us on the big and small scale… and of course we’ll talk about guns.
Let’s begin with the wonderful old 30-30 Winchester. I hope you all enjoy it here.
