    Everywhere I turn for high road information on Colts, Smiths, 1911s, wheel guns, pre-war, post war and now even Kings custom sights... always the most detailed descriptions filled with purpose and history- Cast a vote if you would buy an Old Fuff gun encyclopedia.

    Hey, what happened to the poll option?

    I think Old Fluff and SM both should write a book.

    Just A book? The gentleman, as he has demonstrated so often here, could easily write volumes on what he knows. I would buy the entire set.

    That's what I like about this place. Why buy the cow, when the milk is free.:evil:

    Old Fuff seriously know stuff. Got a random S&W from 1914? He'll tell you the serial number, original finish, bbl length, etc... It's amazing.

    I'd buy two copies of his book. That way, I can read it twice!;)

    I would buy a copy.

    And while we're getting THR members to write, get RCModel to write one on reloading. That man has forgotten more than I'll ever know.

    I can write one on creatively placing shots AROUND the bullseye, in what seems to be a random pattern, to help those around you feel better about their skills. :neener:

    Well I’m overcome… Should I start a fan club??? :D

    Occasionally someone wants me to write a book, or simply sit down with a tape recorder… The problem is that each individual wants me to focus on whatever subject they are particularly interested in. Another issue is that my typing is a lot slower then it used to be, which makes a recorder look better and better.

    Anyway, what I do here is answer specific questions, which is really what most members want. Then of course I get to answer those questions that I want to, and ignore others that I wouldn’t be so good at. :uhoh:

    The big advantage of this forum is that there are other members that in certain areas know a lot more then I do. Take “1911Tuner” for example – he has forgotten more about the mechanics of a 1911 pistol then I’ll ever know, and his unmatched expertise also comes to our members, as well as others – for free. There is a gentleman who should really write a book, or put out a video.

    No matter what you want to know, there will be someone who can give you an authoritative answer. The Old Fuff is only one of an exclusive bunch.

    And as been pointed out, books, videos, etc. cost money. The High Road comes free.

    Oh, if I ever find the time I might write a book, but first I'd have to decide what it should be about. ;)

    Old Fuff, RC Model, SM, 1911Tuner, Stephen Camp, Jim Keenan and Jim March should each write a chapter in a giant gun bible.
    I'd be willing to help publish it any way I could :)

    I think old fuff should write a book, Rc Model has answered a few questions and given advice for me as well.

    The knowledge that is available here is the best on the web IMHO. Thanks to all those at THR that have filled the (often large) gaps in my personal quest to become better informed about firearms.:cool:

    "The Collected Musings of Old Fuff" shouldn't be too difficult to produce for anyone willing to take every useful post from himself and string it all together in categories so the Old Fuff could then edit it.

    Hmmm that might not be so bad if you were to break it down by category.
