Well, I had to use my Surefire and get down on my knees to check the bottom shelf of my safe, but I did find a couple of guns to bring to the show.
A 5th one is still in progress and I'm waiting on some new grips.
:)
Be sure to stop by the Louder Than Words booth #931 and say hello!

What I wouldn't give for the grey Springer-based gun on the left....
How much would one of those cost, anyway?

As always, amazing work!

DAMN that one with the scallops on the top strap, mill cut on the side of the slide. Wow that just does it for me.
Every time I see your work, I just think, thats a shooter. Its nice to look at all the froo froo guns that the other top end smiths do. But every time I see one of yours I think, Id carry that not just look at it.

Hell even the engraved stainless looks like a dressy carry gun, not a gun that comes in a $1000 box to collect dust.

I like the grey one with the HP cut and fluting on the slide. I don't normally go for customs, but your stuff is in another league. All of those pistols are top-notch.

Long days and late nights and an OUTSTANDING body of work. You managed to put together a collection that offers something to everyone....including color. :) And the spring plug on the fluted gun? YOWSA!!

Safe travels, buddy. Hope you have a great show!

Hey Chuck - I have been waiting for your call. I just know you want to take my 1911 with it's hand-cut ejection port along with you to show off. I'm certain you'll be ringing me up today to ask for the pistol, right?

:D:rofl:

Best,
Jon

YyyyyyyOWZA! Not something I can afford anytime soon, but I'm SURE that it's well worth twice that price.

Someday.... :(
