Re: What Do I Have? Do I have a Trapdoor, Do I have anything?

Thanks, Bob - - you are much too kind. There are a great many folks on the informal "staff of experts" of this fine DISCUSSION BOARD (only a handful of whom I mentioned in my last posting) who have far more knowledge and experience than I will ever be able to accumulate in my lifetime (72 years and counting). The important thing is that we all love each and every TRAPDOOR (and other Springfield arms and accoutrements) and are delighted to try to be of help. And we have all found that it is in trying to be helpful that we receive our satisfaction. After all, we all started out at "ground zero", and it was other good folks like those I mentioned previously who offered their time and knowledge and experience to give us a start. Anyhow, your comments make the effort all VERY worthwhile, and thanks very much.

Now if I could only learn to type and spell - - and then take the time to proofread and check what I have typed (and then make the necessary corrections) - - there's no telling how helpful I could be (and don't snicker, Dick Hosmer - - once in a VERY great while I've been known to catch one of your ever-so-slight mistypes!). And, if I may, I shall pass along your regards to all of the "TRAPDOORS-men" at the 33rd Annual Ohio Civil War Collectors Show & Artillery Demonstration at Mansfield, Ohio on April-30/May-1/2.

With best regards,
