Very nice collector piece. Congrats to Mark for being twice nominated.
In 1999 when Gil Hebard won the American Handgunner award, Thompson Center gave him a 12" Encore in 44 magnum. I now own this gun, with serial # HOY1999.


That rates Purdy high on the cool factor, as well!

I have Elmer Keith, Charles Askins, Bill Ruger, Bill Jordan, Harlan Carter, Skeeter Skelton, Warren Center, Steve Hornady, Hal Swigget, J D Jones, Elgin Gates, Jim Clark, Roy Jinks, Jeff Cooper, and Gil Hebard.
I think 1999 was the last year, and I don't have them all.
