Title says it all . Seems there are paid trolls joining various web sites frequented by conservatives such as gun owners . Their goal appears to be stir up crap , speak negatively about the president , start as many arguments as possible . You'll almost never see them post anything firearm related .

I believe they are on all forums I visit, not just firearms forums.
Doesn't take long to spot them.
Lot of times they're scammers.. looking for members email addresses etc .. for whatever they use the info for.
Moderators delete them, but some keep coming back.. cockroaches.

You run into them everywhere. Once you respond to them they will never stop, they keep saying the same thing using different phrases and words. I learned my lesson the hard way responding to a troll.

Kinda like stepping where the dog had been there, just walk on a different trail here. As noticed by all problems like that are so very easy to see, and fix.

It takes a deranged individual to wish to do something to or become one so despised by others, a often used well worn quote from my old Capt.

I don't know how many people are going to recognize the reference. " Have Gun Will Travel".
His Colt and leather gear are displayed at the Western Heritage Museum in Ok City, very well worn. Also a business card with them!

That's great. I always wondered what happened to his stuff. Richard Boone was the perfect actor for that role. One of my favorite shows.

When we went there to visit they were cleaning the glass inside and out the employee handed me the holster and said "Hold THAT a second" while he cleaned the display it was on, I like to have fainted, he knew I was glued to looking at it. It looked exactly as the TV series showed it just very worn and used. They also have a Marlin room with unfired in the box antique Marlins, great place to visit but a lot of walking, the clothes on display alone are worth it, not reproductions but original. My #1 was a buckskin coat worn by 3 different actors in 3 different series, Matt Dillion, Cheyenne & John Wayne with pictures of all in it.

That is outstanding !!! A once in a life time. I envy you brother.. You actually held Paladin's Holster. The buckskin jacket I remember from Mat Dillion and Cheyenne. I really got to look into going there., Heck for a chance to see some of those things it is worth walking no matter how far. Thanks for the memories.

Also had Josh Randall's mare's leg from Wanted Dead or Alive the coat was in the hall going to snack bar very over priced and not good at all BAD! take ice chest in Truck! The Sharps display and the original Buffalo Hunter's clothes were also a must see plan it as a 3/4+ day trip. Also an entire western town with shops and businesses with original things in it. Dentist and female private part's doctor best. I had a dentist with me and spent awhile there.

One other store In my life I have been in with original 1800's firearms in the boxes was Rowe's Guns in Ohio City, Colorado, they had a new Colt 1911 rubber band pistol in box and let us all shoot it.

Honestly as much as I like firearms I enjoyed the actual clothing items the best, darn sure not like shown on TV, the reloading tools for the Sharps were also very interesting to see. Some of the original shell casings also there, many had a powder line scratched on them! I used to use a 20 ga hull cut off at 100gr 2fg
