Actually, even though the grips are genuine diamondback rattler, I had to find them in Michigan! ...at Dog Grips... Home Page
That looks great. And I'm a Prescott native, so I might have to have one!

Same thing on my 1911 -

Yea, you sure do. Seems every time I go through Texas, someone's trying to get me to taste a genuine rattlesnake that tastes just like chicken. I like the snake hide on my grips, but I'll stick with Col. Sanders on the menu selections...

B-E-A-utiful grips.
You got a range report up about that beauty yet?
I am seriously considering one.

It's a straight shooter right out of the box. I did have a few FTF's during the first 100 rounds. I polished the ramp edges by hand (no Dremmel tool) with some 1500-grit paper followed by Flitz. With the sharp edges polished like a mirror, it performs beautifully. Ruger has done a very nice job with this pistol...very tight fit all around, and I especially like the 70-series design without the lawyer parts in the slide. They also put a small peep hole above the breech end of the barrel so the shooter can see if a round is in the chamber. That's much more classy than one of those chintzy Loaded Chamber Indicators found on some other pistols. I recommend this pistol. In fact, I don't know why a guy would pay more for a 1911. Ruger did it right...

I like that Ruger listens to what shooters want. Series 70 design and a GI rod. I may have to get one of these

Well, you appear to be pretty flush with revolvers, so go get one, man (if you can find one)...

1911s too. The Ruger will be 1911 number 8. If it shoots I collect and horde it
