    First the knives, now the guns!

    Thanks to Rhome's excellent photography, here are a few pics of the toys; Rhome did the modifications on both the Springer Champion, as well as the grips and holster from Stingray (my birthday present!), and both Safari Arms; and they still shoot!





















    That's most of the serious toys, except for the Glocks, and they are ugly; of course, they work...

    Dang John - you are spoiling us today - a visual feast

    #8? Is that a competition tricked out K frame - looks like it might be a M19 or such. Looks like ideal for PPC.

    I nearly said ''Davis'' but could not recall where he was. One of the guys in my old comp team back in UK had a Davis (at vast expense!) - and we all envied it no end.

    I ''made do'' with my smoothed 686 and barrel weight. I now have almost that again since ''recovering'' from being de-gunned.

    I'm feeling a little flushed after looking at that gun porn.

    Very nice pics and some damn fine looking guns. I especially like the grip on the Safari Arms 1911. Very nice looking.

    Those are beautiful. Thanks for the pictures.

    My pleasure Mike. The grips are diamond back rattlesnake, and are a great grip surface. I think they were $25 on ebay.

    The surfaces are rounded, not sharp, so the grip is great, doesn't slip, and also doesn't hang up in fabric. I'd like to have a set for all my guns.
