    They come in steel also, though I like the brass better.

    It is still at the store in Austin, TX, and the guy wants $300 for it.

    Austin, that explains so much.
    ALL ORDNANCE SHOWN BY ME HAS BEEN INERTED AND HAS NO LIVE FILLERS.

    You Americans have it so good. $300 US is around $500 Australian plus huge postage if it could be imported to Australia.
    I would jump at this opportunity as we never see these items here. Just my thoughts. Ron.

    I'd have to think hard at $50. No historic link, no special technology aspect, no geographic interest - nothing to make it worth $300 for certain.

    As we say in Texas, "Keep Austin Weird". That is where all the liberals reside in a very conservative state. I felt the same way about the price; that is why it is still there. I know from shipping similar items to New Zeeland that the shipping cost will be between $200 and $300 for US Post. Any courier service would be two or three times more. I can ship it to Australia with no issues, if you really want it. I will be back that way by the end of August.
