PISTOL PACKIN' MAMA - THE DAY I MET ELVIS

The never before told story of how I met Elvis Presley on the day he bought a .357 Magnum which sold at auction for $195,500.

PISTOL PACKIN' MAMA - THE DAY I MET ELVIS

I hadn’t thought about this incident in decades until I came across a website hawking Elvis Presley’s .357 Magnum for $275,000 and noting that he bought it at a certain sporting goods store in Beverly Hills. That’s when I knew I had to tell this story.

I was 18 years old in 1970. I used to enjoy wandering through the ritzy shops in Beverly Hills looking at cameras, art supplies, and other expensive stuff. On November 6th of that year, I dropped into Kerr Sport Shop (AKA Kerr's Sporting Goods), purveyor of high-end sports equipment. In the far corner of the store was their gun department. On the back wall stood dozens of expensive shotguns and hunting rifles, before which was a long glass display case filled with handguns. I was leaning over the display case admiring the finely engraved revolvers when I felt a looming presence step beside me to my right.
