    I got these from a forum member... Kelly-A. He custom made the grips. They sure are beauties. :D I'm gonna build a display case for em.
    He can tell ya much more about em than I can.

    Guns were made to be shot. That's why I usually stay away from the guns made for show. The prettier they are, the more I want to shoot them. (Kind of like women.....except I don't want to shoot them) :D

    Good Point

    Good point , guns are made to be shot . But when you got lots of them you can choose to shoot them or not :D
    Some people collect Picaso and Rembrandt to admire on thier walls , some collect guns . I often buy two of each gun, one to admire, one to use as the tool they were intended to be .

    I would buy two of every gun too, if I had the money. For now I buy one, to admire and to shoot.
