Capt. "Kiss My Duck" is back...
 
Hey, Gents. Been a long time. When I returned home from Iraq a few months ago I quickly found myself prepping for a training mission to lovely Nigeria where I am currently working.

Hardly any access to a computer - but, I have missed all of you completely.

My question: I have a Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 with a nice 10.5" barrell back home. This favorite of mine deserves a set of grips to highlight its beauty. Now, being in Africa at the present, I have access to artisans and exotic materials by and from which I could have a gorgeous set of grips made. The question is, are there any blueprints, specs, guides, etc., that I could give to one of these talented young craftsmen? I didn't bring the originals, so some specs would be great.

Any ideas? And, for that matter, anyone need a specific souvenir while I'm here?

Wow, Iraq then Nigeria - the Army likes you!

Perhaps one of our folks has said Ruger and can send you a set of grips? I don't but...

Great idea, but I think I'll be home in a few weeks. Not enough time for mail to run. Thanks for the thought, though! And, yeah, my country utilizes me "well" I suppose... ;)

Do you have access to purple heart wood? That would be awesome!

You wouldn't believe... ;) By the way, it's like O-Dark-Thirty in the morning at home, no? Why are you all awake??? Glad you are, regardless.

Us Army civilians are a dedicated bunch. I'll be getting ready for work shortly as the 3rd ID can't function without me...

Roger that! And a "Strike Lightning" for my son's unit...

You could also just have some blanks made, and have them turned into grips when you get back Stateside. Thanks for your service.

+1 on that one. Get the material locally, but get a professional to do the work
