My favorite story about the BAM cases is the one Bruce tells about the guys from the Chinese Laundry.
 
Maybe he will pop in and tell it again.
 
Hey Bob,
 
I mention Dan Herrera and his gun case business in an article I wrote titled, "Auto Mag Collectables."  It is on "Ian's AMT Information Site."
 
How do you turn a Mexican Restaurant into a Chinese Laundry ? 
 
Here is what I wrote;
 
 

"There was a request for cases so the factory ordered them from custom case maker Dan Herrera of Walnut, California. Mr. Herrera was again called upon to make cases for the Bicentennial guns and was regularly recommended by the factory to customers requesting custom cases. The author paid Mr. Herrera to watch the movie Malone so he could check out the case Burt Reynolds used for his Auto Mag. Mr. Herrera then made ten copies of the case. When the Baby Auto Mags were made Mr. Herrera agreed to make 1000 cases for the factory. He put off making the cases as long as he could. He said he waited outside a Mexican restaurant until they closed and hired all the dishwashers and waiters to work through the night to help him complete the cases. He said he had quoted the factory a bargain basement price on the cases and they sure look like it."

Dan later made a line of coffin cases and cases with glass lids.  Larry Grossmann showed off the first Harry Sanford Signature Series gun at the Shot Show in Vegas in one of Mr. Herrera's coffin cases. 

Another article is in the works.......Bruce

I couldn't remember where I read your story at.

About the Chinese Laundry, I have no idea where I got that at.   Confused
