James D. Julia Auctioneers’ Outstanding March Firearms Auction

I understand that most of the people reading this (like me) do not have the buying power to own a firearm featured in a premier auction such as James Julia’s Outstanding March Firearms Auction, but that does not mean you cannot have fun fantasizing, window shopping or just looking at a piece of history.

Second, please remember I am available for immediate adoption.
