Roughly 26 years ago I was an indentured slave to a firearms store. Eldon Bryant was getting long in the tooth, as they say. Eldon brought in most of his firearms from the early 1900's. For those who do not know Eldon Bryant was old Alaska.
So by appointment Eldon shows up just as the store opens, and the slave master has coffee with Eldon, as the indentured slaves haul in roughly 90 old firearms from Eldon's vehicle.
It is soon evident that a large number of said firearms are not "Politically correct" by 1986 standards.
So the store was closed, the door locked, blinds were drawn, till we sorted out the sell'able product, from the "Holly Spit" this needs to be destroyed (classic history) firearms.
Eldon Bryant, was a very nice man, from a long ago time in Alaska history. And I must be careful what I record for posterity, but a lot of firearms that should have gone to a museum were destroyed. And this slave learned a lot about early Alaska, and "Set'Guns".
It is NOT my objective to cast negative light on a Alaskan Pioneer, only to record how we foolishly destroy our history.
If you have ever seen the "Tools" of men like Albert Johnson you would understand.
I hope I do not regret this post.
