to be allowed to troll through the Historical Foundation's database? I don't necessarily need to find anything, I just want a glimpse into the past through letters and correspondence.
After my first experience with the SWHF's kind and helpful people sending me 5 delightful pages about my gun, I must say I'm mad at myself for not realizing exactly what is going on there sooner and sending my money.
I do have a question: is there any possibility that some day the database will be available to the public? Or do the personal records that are contained in there need to be kept private?
Is it maybe an end goal to make the records available through a company such as Google for the public to search?
After the little tastes I have seen of the documents you have been coming up with on Registered magnums I could see myself spending my off time just browsing through the records, reading polite letters about broken shell extractors and re-blues.
