Sorry again William, I still don't know what you mean.
I merely indicated that the value is relatively modest in my opinion for what is referred to here as "the collection," and though it should obviously be secured it does not warrant insurance. I don't think I can make it any simpler for you than that William. No need to respond if you still miss the point.
I also don't think someone who is a novice about arms and/or has a well below average income should erroneously build up the expectations of the family, to which I extend my condolences, who apparently doesn't know guns much at all. No need to respond if you take exception to that William.
If you are impugning my character by implying that I was somehow trying to depress the price of any pieces for my own personal gain I would say three things:
1) you obviously don't do much here which includes reading the most popular current thread on the Blackpowder forum, by far, or you'd inevitably have developed a different perspective;
2) only a cur
who themselves would act as you indicate would suggest such a thing, and;
3) number two is especially true if you read my comments and understood
that I clearly only indicated all arms should be sold through an auction, regardless, including those that the family may want to be generous with. Perhaps Steve will even confirm I didn't contact him personally. So, William, are you a mutt or just illiterate?
In fact there isn't, and probably never was, a reason for you to respond here William.
