So Iím at a gun show in Ft. Worth yesterday and this gentleman had 2 Belgian made 12ís. I somewhat jokingly asked if he had in sweet sixteens, because I donít think Iíve ever seen one at a gun show. In fact he did have one! 1969 fixed modified. Beautiful gun. I took a walk to think about the $1500 he was asking for it and in that 10 mins, it was sold to someone who didnít have to think that hard on the money, lol. Now this thing had gold inlay...havenít seen that before. Did this gun ever come with gold inlay or was this an aftermarket add on?

WELCOME, WELCOME on your first postings

You have to use a picture hoster like hunt101, or some other.
Then capture their IMG code and paste here

If you will get your pictures hosted, I will assist you in how to post.

Mike

Ugh.......that poor olí sweet indicates why we have all manner of shotguns, dogs, chokes and boots......and probably, fins on 60s cadillacs.
Choice...is a good thing. Idea
