    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Do you have a link? I'd buy a pair for sure if they weren't too pricey.

    I don't think he has a website....I just did everything by email with him....he sent photos of his blanks to choose from...and sent photo updates along the process....I'll email him and ask if it's ok to post his mail address here, or for anyone who wants it to PM for it or something...

    P.S.-- As far as price....for the amount of work that I'm sure went into them...I think they were a STEAL!

    Those wouldn't be from Wicked Grips, would they? They look similar in flavor to some that I've seen from that outfit.

    Whether they are or not, here's a link to them for any of you who are interested (no hijack intended!): http://www.wickedgrips.com/

    He did a beatuiful job. They are great. I've never seen any grips with a barbed wire inlay before. Very nice! Nice wood too.

    Nope, they aren't from Wicked, although you're right, they do seem like they could have come from there. No, this gentleman is a guy (who shall remain nameless until I get confirmation from him that it is OK to post his contact info, if anyone wants it) that posts on another forum I frequent. Thanks for all the thoughts (good or bad) folks, keep 'em coming, because I sent the maker the links to all the threads I posted them in. I like to encourage anyone with his kind of talent to expand their business if they so desire....
