    Very nice Bill. I am lucky enough to have one of these rare pistols also...and I have the same box of shot rounds and holster!
    I have always wondered how many of the 55,000 pistols actually exist, still in original form.

    For real.....my US&S was bought from a little old man sitting on a bench eating a sandwich outside at the Great Western Gun show over 30 years ago..........(for $350) A hard story to forget.

    I'll post pics of mine sometime also.

    Regards, Steve
