Happy New Year and a prosperous year ahead for all in 2023. 

I've been around this forum for almost 14 years now, made a lot of good friends, and have seen many come and go.  But as each new year rings in, I also feel the effects of passing time and realize there is a point when decisions must be made with all the iron we've collected and coveted over the years.  We see it happen to those around us, but we don't think it's going to happen to each of us individually. Well, we all know we can't escape the effect of time!  

So, this year, in the interest of simplification, I've decided to "thin the herd" of Dan Wesson and move it on to those who are more active in the sport and shooting community.  I haven't decided yet when or how to do it, but I feel that the time is coming. 

Once I get things sorted out I should have a better idea of how to start.  There's a lot of nice pieces including some of the most collectible and coveted - a new Norwich 7414VH10, 7360, 7460, 22 Magnums, 740's, 7445's, 32's, 32-20, 722M pack complete, some one-off factory productions,  and everything in between.  Grips, barrels, tools, and all sorts of clutter from the Dan Wesson world. 

When I get it figured out I'll post an update.

I understand where you are coming from! Since having my son 10 years ago who has Down syndrome my focus has shifted.  I hope one day I can get him involved in shooting but we're still a ways from that happening.

I'm sure you will find a list of interested individuals here on the DWF.

You'll have no trouble moving those items here.  I'll be watching and am definitely interested in a few of them.

Jack, you just need a little more storage space. However, if thinning, keep me in mind for that 7360. I'll be your best friend!!! Thinning isn't quiting, it is upgrading. 🙄
