: The term "throw" seems to have been a more generic term covering all whip moves. Incendentally, the side throw is the hardest hitting throw of all of the moves. It is used in South America for hunting small game, and is capable of breaking a rabbit's neck, so be careful guys in your practice! Regarding gun laws, are you speaking 1930ish laws, or current. Definately different animals, as you well know. I think the history of the arms are about as interesting as the actions of the weapons themselves, but I find myself getting more sentimental as I get older, or is that senial? About the only real safety rules to keep in mind are that all guns should be considered loaded, regardless of whether or not you know for a fact that they aren't. Never point a weapon at anything you do not plan to shoot, so keep control of the muzzle at all time, keeping it either downrange at at practice range, or toward the ground. Never let the muzzle cross the path of another individual when carrying the weapon. Remember the "never aiming at something you don't plan to shoot" rule. Every weapon has a different cleaning routine, so I think we'd be going to far afield from the forum FAQ for this information. The Cristy's auction took place in the late 80's as I recall. The details as well as pictures were on the forum not very long ago, and I printed a hard copy of the information, but it is at home, and not here for me to refer to. As I recall, the bag went in the $3000-$5000 US dollar range. A bit more than we paid for our bags, or least I hope so! Send whatever you want directly to me. As you say, it should reduce the "clutter" from the forum. Good idea. Talk to you soon. Regards. Michaelson

Excuse me, Michaelson, do some people really use whips for hunting???
Strange! I'd have understood it if they'd used whips for a battue but
a whip as a weapon for hunting...

Anyway, I was refering to the current gun laws in my prior post. I
planned to give just a brief overview as the laws vary from state to
state like you probably know. However, I must admit it would be
interesting write about former gun laws as well. Regarding the Basics
of Safety, I have found a little booklet (The Colt Companion) I got
with a Colt features a section about safety rules. Maybe I can 'copy'
some of these as well. But I think you just named the most important
ones in your post.

Yes, I will include some information about the history of the guns as
well. Incidentally, I'd say it's quite natural to get a little bit
sentimental about it. These guns actually ARE milestones in the history
of military handguns...

Gee, the bag was a little bit too expensive, wasn't it. I expected it
to have been around $1000. At least it is a rather 'unknown' minor
prop. I think an original Wested jacket (worn by Harrison Ford) was
once sold as well. As far as I know it was about $14000!
