YaY!!  That means I can use the famous patented Col. Colt's disappearing rear revolver sight.
That's the hammer. :applaud :applaud

Pull the trigger and the rear sight disappears. :Doh!

It worked quite well for Hickock and Hardin...  :bl th up :toast :shake

By contrast, I've kinda forgotten about all those skills.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest Up to God.
