That big Herter's catalog sure kept this country boy entertained many a time. George Herter was the PT Barnum of the mail order catalog world!

I carried a Herter in 1966 when I went to Fairbanks, AK for college. .44 magnum, and I had one of the native Art students make a nice pair of grips for it. Nice gun, but I went through several triggers when the seers broke off.

Miss the Herter's catalog. It was much more entertaining than Cabela's! Too bad they lost everything in a fire.

Herters made their own brand of shotgun reloading hammer tool, something like the Lee Loader.

I just did a search on gunbroker for Herters. Wow a nice Winchester 12 with a Herters choke on it!

It is a real shame that the round was connected to Herter's otherwise it would have been one of the best middle Magnums going... It would have been the perfect round for the Python and Trooper and the yet to be made GP-100 and L-frames...would have been much closer to what Keith/Jordan/Skelton were looking for than the .41 Magnum on a N-frame they got...


Have been making "suggestions" to STARLINE that they make some brass as they would sell 100K in a year with no problem...


Best article I have seen on the .401s potential...

If glen says it you can take it to the bank. Hands down one of the most knowledgeable shooters and handloader, and bullet caster that ever lived.

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!
