Just say'n....
Now that is interesting...because you're using something with collectible value to it.

I wonder if this could be said....? In 1873 you could buy the best gun on the market for an ounce of Gold and today the same is true. I mean back in the day the peacemaker was pretty much the Glock/1911 of it's time...no? And today $1200 will buy you a VERY nice pistol.
