    Good stuff. What museum is number 4 in? I would love to visit and take a look.
    Thank you for sharing.
    EDIT: Looks like Woolaroc in Bartlesville is the location. I need to make a trip to see that as well as the JM Davis museum. Both are right here North of Tulsa.

    I believe it was @dennishoddy who put a trip together last year to the JM Davis Museum. Bunch of fellas said they had a great time.

    I've been threatening to go to the JM Davis Gun Museum in Claremore for well over 30 years......being a self professed gun nut I guess I need to quit procrastinating and do it.

    There is a significant collection of guns at Woolaroc, pretty interesting. Takes up most of the basement. Woolaroc is a fun, historic, and inexpensive day trip if you just want to do something with the family for a few hours without spending a fortune.

    Lots of old Colt SAAs and such, very neat. I've been a couple of times out there, probably time to take The Boy back out again now that he can appreciate them a little more and probably remember it better in the future.

    Notice they all have the idiot scratch. Now your 1911s have something in common with the originals.

    Yes, Dennis set up a great day at the museum. Even for a gun guy, that’s sensory overload!

    Yep. I'd go again. There's so much stuff, towards the end I was in overload mode.
