I dont have 69, but I wanted to choose my serial number when I got mine, because I knew I would have this gun for a while.
I wanted #21 because that is mine fav number but already taken. I ended up with #215, since it was one of the lower ones that was raw when I got mine. Eileen was great about letting me choose my gun.
I can saw this though, whoever got #211 ( my first choice). That gun made a trip to Maine a back before you got it. They sent it to my old address by mistake. Would like to hear who got that one myself. I hope I am not walking on your post Foo, but I like hearing about things like this too!
