It will have to wait until I retire and move back to Missouri.

2 yrs of scratching ticks & chiggers near Ava sent me running away with my tail between my legs; & that was before Lyme had arrived.

Jeff, That is what I’m talking about! I too hope to speed up once I retire. I’ve got a while.

Hi Bert-

You’re better at this than I am… Embarassed

I save my processed pics at 600 dpi and (a standard for continuous tone images in venues I’m familiar with) and cropped to “published image size”.  It does get unwieldy… Dropbox (or similar “file sharing” programs) were my friend when it came to things like sending a whole book (“scientific” compendium – not something useful/fun) to the publisher.  I always let the journal figure it out… Lucky (for me) that multi-terabyte external hard drives are cheap these days so I can save my files (however inefficiently)…

BTW… I would love to see a “monograph” of your Single Shot collection…  Doesn’t matter if it’s 50 guns or 500… Just good pics along with enough info to explain to an ignoramus (me) what I’m looking at… Paper or e-book… Sign me up for a copy…

Lou,

I am working very studiously on that monograph for the Winchester Single Shot.  I am currently just over 80% through an intensely detailed complete survey of the factory records.  When it is complete, I will write and publish a detailed statistical analysis of the Single Shot production. It will include photos and descriptions of all the many different cataloged variations, the total production of each variation, and all of the other specific details.

If you have enough of them, a small book, perhaps spiral bound, of the Single Shot Rifle Collection of Bert Hartman would be welcome.  Sign me up as a customer.

Count me in for a couple copies also.  One to read and one to let “appreciate” in value… LaughLaughLaugh

Bert-

May seem like a stupid question but will you include the Winder Muskets in this book?

Absolutely… the Winder Muskets were a very significant portion of the Single Shot production.
