Abercrombie on Madison Ave. was like Disneyland for gun lovers. They were known a hundred years for supplying safaris, even a couple Teddy Roosevelt went on. I bought a couple of guns from them including a Colt SAA that they customized for me. In the 1970's someone walked in and removed a shotgun that they had with many others displayed on racks on the floor. He loaded it and blew his brains out. They then caved in and are now the crappy store you see today. I loved hanging out there with my old German salesman. Guess nothing lasts forever. By the way, they were also hooked up with custom gun maker Griffin & Howe. Got that also. Damn shame things are so screwed up these days and the younger gun guys will never know how great things used to be.
