Wow, I love seeing your weaponry. Someday I would love to get together with you and put some lead down range!

That is the older Baercoat. Nice finish.

I really like the Melonite. Very different finish and tougher than nails.

And I'm a huge fan of hard chrome.

The reissue Series 70 is in line for 2013 for a full-house custom job with this local guy

Nothing fancy about mine, a stainless Kimber Compact, circa 2000.

The Kimber on top was a graduation present for Daughter #3 when she graduated law school at Iowa. Has the laser grip.

The other, of course are not 1911's at all. One is the gun I carry in the car daily, a Browning BDM 9mm. The Walther .380 PPK/S gets carried on my person more than any other and is in my pocket as I write, a time zone and then some away from home.

No, I'm not a Ruger bigot - just an unabashed fan of their revolvers, M77's and #1's.

A good .30-06 is a 99% solution.

Mine is a step down from the others, and it rides on the dash year round so it's a little scratched up, but never a hiccup. [Linked Image]

I will add the CT grips were a waste of money.

The gun on the left is a Les Baer Custom Carry - the pistol on the right is a Colt that was lightly customized by Ed Brown from the early 80's when he was a one-bench pistolsmith.
