I thought I'd try the dart throwing thing to get a winner.

I wrote the names on a post it note and cut them into 1/4" strips and attached them in a circle around the bull's eye on the board.
Then I backed up about 15 feet and let fly.....

After resting my throwing arm I repositioned myself to ten feet from the board and let fly.....

After all that practice I have found that I can consistantly hit somewhere near the board about half of the time. :(

I had previously decided that I actually had to pierce the paper with a name on it to count. After all of that I did finally hit one.

And the winner is.... Belisarius.

Congrats to him and a Merry Christmas to all.

After Belisarius makes his pick I would like for you other fellas to post back and pick a grip.I would very much like to make about four other forumites a gift of a set of grips.

Hey it is Christmas and I'm in the mood for giving. :D

Happy holidays to you and yours.

That's a kind offer, and if Belisarius leaves the smooth S&W grips up for grabs, I'm not too shy to ask to be considered.

And if you were to walk over to make delivery I'd even make a fresh pot of good cajun coffee to help perk you up after the stroll.

Hey!

Wow, I actually won! Potthawg, I congratulate you on your fine thowing skills! (Actually, one of the reasons I'm glad I won is now I get to try and figure out a way to top some of the ways to pick the next winner)

I do believe that if it's still okay, that I'll pick the Colt Officers/Defender grips. Thank you very much and a Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I'll PM you with my mailing particulars.

I think this brings us up to GK 20. Now the only thing is that I am leaving tomorrow for a week's vacation and won't post it until then. So no one please start flaming me when you don't see a post until 4 Jan or so.

Once again, thanks Potthawg and Happy Holidays!!

Since I'm pretty new here, I'm not sure which grips you are refering to?

Would you please enlighten me?

I hope everyone had a safe & happy holidays... Please be careful, if you're traveling back home, from where ever you might have had to visit...

S. A. S/S loaded 1911, is what I shoot.

Thanks,
:rock:

Potthawg,

Any chance that I could get the old style Ruger BH grips from ya'?If so just let me know, and I'll send you a pm. Thanks.:D
They're yours for the asking DW10PM. They are for the Super Blackhawk frame. Came off a nice three screw that has since gone down the road.

I'll be looking for a pm from you.

JD...

Thanks for the kind words.

There's someone else here on the GK thread that has plenty of Christmas spirit too. If you remember GK 18 that I won from Yotehunter,you may recall that I chose the Fobus holster from his list. Well,Ole Yote tossed in a set of Houge grips and a couple of boxes of 10mm Double Tap ammo. :eek:

I've said it before and I'll keep on saying it. The 1911 Forum and especially the DW page has some of the best folks you'll find anywhere.

GROUP HUG! :D
