Yes, I know. Funny thing though, my mom saved my old cap guns for me but the BB guns got handed down to the nieces and nephews, one of whoom still has my old plastic stocked Red Ryder but the M-38 is lost to history.

Same thing here Louie. I have cap guns and cap rifles from the old tv shows. Hard to part with but it is time now

 I hear what you are saying, and as a collector for almost 50 years, I made a decision with a tear in my eye to start selling some of my 150 Daisy guns about a year ago, not including a collection of western cap guns and holster sets, and a few other toy guns.

I realize that this hobby attracts mostly us older characters, we grew up with watching western movies, playing with bb guns, cap guns, and we looked at the cowboy as a hero in our youth. It has been a great ride for me, much fun, but coming to an end. I have about 50 guns left plus several cap gun and holsters and a few other toy guns. Sad to watch them go, but it is what it is.

That's what a lot of us older collectors are facing now. Had about 100 Daisy guns to get rid of and still working on doing it. That doesn't count the other toy guns and stuff. Seems it is taking as long to get rid of as it did to collect LOL

I think there are a few who can relate- I'm one of them, for that matter!  I have to watch carefully the guns I allow to come home with me because if I didn't, I'd soon be overrun and then it would fall to others to dispose of them when I'm dead. That's not something I want to put anyone through. That said, why on earth do I sit here with 5 Daisy CO2 200s?Wacko  I guess after learning how to resurrect them, I got a bit carried away. Sure, they're fun to shoot- but I don't need 5 of them! smh

Yes, I have no doubt Louie is the real deal and the gun he pictured is very nice, really pretty wood. But as I told Louie, $175 seems a lot to spend on a novelty just to say I have one. The quest to find one is the interesting part, once I have it in hand I'll probably shoot it 25 times then set it in a corner somewhere and forget it, just one more thing for the wife to dispose of after my passing. LOL

Dang.  So sorry, Joe.  Makes me want to strangle those rats.

If you have any $$ left from your budget, you can feel confident dealing with Louie.  He is a good guy and a super-knowledgeable collector  who has been on this forum for a long time (only 15+ years!).
Be Prepared

Unfortunately I did get conned into using the "friends & Family" mode, PayPal has already informed me there is no recourse there. I checked with Discover card and they did hold out some hope but that is a work in progress at this time. 129 bucks is not going to destroy me and I'm not even angry, mostly just disappointed in myself that I overlooked so many obvious warning signs.Ouch
