Yearout collection at auction
Posted by Tom Trevor on Wednesday, 8 October 2014, at 6:58 p.m.
Noticing the Yearout collection was looking well worn in the Julia catalogue and having seen much nicer guns of theirs in magazine articles over the years I googled Layton Yearout and found the following. Great Falls Montana January 11, 2012 Layton Yearout was killed in a house fire that consumed the house, when the fire department arrive the house was fully engulfed and ammunition was exploding along with a large propane tank along side the house.The fire crews assumed a defensive position and fought the fire from a distance. As a result the gun vault was for TWO days under a stream of water until considered cool enough to enter. I bet it contained enough water to fill a swimming pool. Sounds as bad as the Frank Sellers disaster.
