    Found a Philadelphia Derringer awhile back at a yard sale for $20, couldn't pass that up,
    so I brought it home, monkeyed with it a bit...decided that it needed a re-blue,
    thought about it awhile and decided that it should be a Re-Brown to look more "Period-Correct"

    Stripped the stock, polished out the barrel, grabbed some Birchwood Casey Browning solution
    & made the barrel nice again. Then started thinking Color for the stock...
    did some reading up on old Pirate Pistols and was deciding what color to go with...
    when In Walked Trouble, who decided that it was entirely too cute and just her size...

    Giving that Wifey had purchase a Pirate Wench Costume, she needed an "Equalizer"
    that didn't look like a "Equalizer"...so on went the Pink Stain and accessories...

    What can you do when the one you brought home from the dance wants to dance with your new toy?
    I'm not sure of the pink but it is a nice accessory for a lady pirate.

    I go with the "If it makes the Wifey happy, just do it!"
