Here is a copy of the email I sent to the editor of Shooting Times. Just the idle thoughts of an idle fellow. All the best...
Gil

Dear Editor:

I enjoyed the article "Ithaca Model 37" by Joel Hutchcroft in the March 2014 issue of your magazine. There is no doubt that this is a classic shotgun and I am fortunate to own a number of them in 12, 16 and 20 gauge options. All of my Ithaca shotguns were bought off the used gun racks in various gun shops and the last one cost $189.00. I believe the author omitted the price of a new Ithaca Model 37 because the MSRP is right around $1,000.00. Who would buy a new one at that price when an excellent used Ithaca Model 37 can be purchased for a fraction of the cost? I doubt that you will publish my letter, but that is just fine because I am allowing my subscription to expire without renewing it. All the best...

Is there really a town in PA called Schnecksville?

Not to be confused with Schwenksville which is on the other side of Green Lane.

Is the Seneca Arms brick and mortar store still open there Gil?

I gave the proprietor tickets to Cedar Point last time I saw him at Camp Perry. (Two years agao).

Dawgdad,
I believe John's shop is still open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. He sells most of his stuff online. All the best...

I agree with Gil. Since I am retired and on a fixed income the cost of new firearms is out of reach. I only shop the used gun racks. Take care...

My letter was published in the May 2014 issue of Shooting Times. I am amazed. All the best...
