    That's what bugs me. I was born long after they heyday of Askins and Keith, but I read their books. And Walter Winans' works, from before the First World War (highly recommended, BTW). These kids are clueless. Yes, there are a handful who are knowledgable, but the vast majority have paid no attention to anything that happened before the last decade.

    And one day most of us still writing and teaching will simply say screw it and walk away from this strange industry, leaving them all to their ignorance.

    Has it not always been so. I am not bugged or bothered by it because that is how it always is and has been.

    I believe Charles Askins killed a VC or NVA soldier in Vietnam with a Model 29 Smith.

    Col Charlie killed several in the RVN, from the Big S&W to using a lever gun while hunting Batang, I wish when I was younger I had , had the smarts to record the conversations I had with Bill Jordan and his ilk, Col Askins and Mr. Bryce I keep in my heart, and I truly believe if around now, they would have taken a long hard look at the weapons we have now, and at lest tried them, although I not sure they would love the 9mm

Worth mentioning that, according to my Dad at least, my first words weren't Dada or Mama, but "Keith!" because my Dad used to read to me from Keith's books. Keith wasn't a gunfighter himself, but talked about hanging around the old gunfighters of the previous generation when he was a kid.
