Congrats on the new addition to the family.

Didn't realize the concrete and shiny gun combo was such a taboo. Duly noted. I just liked the differences of texture.
Those revolvers look better than usual. I cleaned them up for the pics. The SP gets carried often and is usually my nightstand gun. When it gets to looking bad, I re-polish it. Carried the GP some a few years back. At that time I used a scotchbrite pad to give it a brushed stainless look. Made cleaning easy and hid scratches well.
Have a holster on order for the SR. Will see how the mat stainless holds up once it starts riding around on my hip.
Thanks again for the compliments guys. I like my Rugers too. Smoothed up the triggers and improved the sights on the revolvers. Seems like the more you shoot them the better they get.
That is an awesome trio you have. Be sure on updating us once you put a few rounds down range

Great photos. I bought a blanket/throw in winter camo from Wal-Mart for about $10. I plan on using it for a background when I start photos on my guns. My wife said I can't use the bath towels.
I have several Rugers. They all shoot great. I had a P97 (.45 ACP) that I didn't like much. And it wouldn't handle Wolf steel case without jamming. But my wife says next year I can get a .45 again. I'm seriously considering the Ruger SR1911 and the Taurus 1911. Just because I want one.
Received a Simply Rugged Cuda OWB holster, extra mag holder and belt for my SR1911 in the mail today.
Turnaround time was 12 days from order to door.
First impressions from wearing it around the house for a few hours....the set up is comfortable and concealable for a large side arm. I'm very happy.
Love the one I have for my SP101 and will get more for other pistols as time goes on.
Yeah, I could tell that SP101 has spent some time being rubbed upon. It looks like it's chrome plated!
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those that describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
The pistol is defiantly more accurate than I am. Plenty of bulls eyes first time out. I was very surprised to keep all seven rounds on a paper plate just point shooting from the hip at seven yards. Did it a few different times and was able to keep four or five rounds on the plate each time. Will have to try some larger targets to see how/where I am off.
I'm really liking this pistol.
