I'll have to check my bank account to see if that Gatling gun comes home with me... :)

A long gone gunshop just outside of Philly had a short barreled Gatling Gun chambered in .30-40 Krag in the middle of the shop.
If I remember correctly, the asking price in 1967 was around $ 2,000.00 and the Consumer Price calculator says that is around 16K in today's dollars.
I'm figuring that a large part of the asking price for the Colt Gatling is that the gun isn't made my modern mass production methods, it's made in only a 50 gun run, and the .45-70 is a traditional cartridge.
Having said all of that, yes of course I want one!

Hi David,
The video in your "Yesterday in St. Louis" post auto plays and walks over other video.

John: Thank You. I will check that and get rid of it if I can't fix it.
