I noticed an older posting in which a member expressed a desire to acquire a Curtis Wad Gun.  I sent a PM to him
but have not received a response.  Therefore, I am making a general posting of my desire to sell my Curtis Wad Gun.

I bought one from Darius (Doc) Young several years ago.  He won the Championship at Camp Perry and this Curtis-built gun
was awarded to him.
Doc sustained an serious injury to his shoulder and gave up Bullseye shooting afterwards.  When I bought the gun
it had HUGE Morini grips on it to fit his HUGE hands.  I immediately sold them.  Doc said he had just shot an 893 with this gun
although I was NOT able to replicate his feat. LOL
Since I bought this Curtis it has been relegated to being a backup.  I have probably shot fewer than 1000 rounds through
it in total.
My skills have been steadily declining while my age continues to march forward.  I've decided to "thin the herd" and am
trying to sell my pistols and rifles so my kids won't have to deal with that burden when I pass.
If you are still interested, I will entertain an offer.  I should mention that both Phil Hemphill and Chuck Larson (Rock River)
were lovingly handling this Curtis last month at Perry and have expressed a great desire to "own a Curtis".

Mike McShea


THANK YOU EVERYBODY WHO EXPRESSED INTEREST IN THIS FINE CURTIS PISTOL.  IT HAS BEEN SOLD TO ONE LUCKY
BULLSEYE-L MEMBER.

I've tried to post photos previously for something else I was selling.  I was unsuccessful for some reason but will try again with the Curtis photos.

Okay.  I've tried THREE times to post photos and am again unable to do so.  I'll probably have to send them directly to anybody who expresses interest.

Rick,

I sent three photos to you and Alex 34 minutes ago.  Alex apparently received them as he has already responded.  I sent them to the email address you posted on this site.

Why the chunk taken out of the trigger guard?

Doc was 6'-4" ish with big ol' hands. I remember him shooting this Pistol when we shot on USAR pistol team. It was for trigger finger clearance. I recently modded a build for a big guy like him.

Jon,

Thank you for providing that explanation.  Yes, when I asked Doc why he had modified the trigger guard he said his finger would otherwise drag on it and disturb the sights.
When fully depressed the trigger comes up just short of the rear-most part of the opening.  When Phil Hemphill tried it last month (Phil also has very large hands) he really liked the feel.

I laughed when I saw the picture. The ERMA I bought from Doc has the same chunk out of the trigger guard.

Did you buy the ERMA .32 that had the slide welded?

He put a brand new slide on it, but it has the same barrel.
