  The looters better watch out when the rooftops start speaking Korean.
Yobo! >:D

IIRC during the Rodney King riots the Weatherby store had all of it's employees on the rooftop prominently displaying their best stuff--.300s, .378s, probably more than a few .460s.
I think their store got through unscathed.

Dexter-Russell used to make butcher knives in the 1800's that were called "Green River" and marked as such on the blade (near the handle).  It soon became a frontier expression to "go up to Green River," meaning you know what.

Yes, Old Fart, I am old and I used to collect even older stuff.  Now I'm trying to get rid of stuff (slowly).  I DO have a lot of stuff. :thumbsup:
I also read a lot and remember what I've read (mostly), unlike a lot of kids nowdays who google stuff on their phones and forget it in 5 minutes, it seems.

I bought my 7mm Magnum for hunting deer in the 90's. 

About 10 years ago it literally gave me whiplash everytime I shot it, so I sold it and bought a 270.  Best hunting gun decision I ever made, but I don't hunt anymore.

Midway has/had some Storm Lake Glock barrels on sale for $80--pretty good barrels at a ridiculously low price (retail is like 180-200 for these, I think).
Might be worth a try.  I've used SL 1911 barrels before and they're good.

BTW I bought the last 1911 .45 barrel Midway had on sale a day or two ago.

good work is never cheap; cheap work is never good

One possible hangup for the range not opening yet is the RSO's.  They have to interact with shooters at a close distance due to the noise, and may have to physically touch them.   They also routinely touch the guns to check them.
I don't ever recall being touched by any of the RSOs, nor have they ever touched my firearms without asking first (or if they were assisting with a jam)[NO, I do not need a hug!]
On the pistol side a couple of the guys would offer coaching or direct assistance if requested, but it's not absolutely necessary for them to interact with shooters at contact range.

The range is simply not a priority of fearless leader.

Spegels:



N frame square butt extended boot grips, extra-dark Cocobolo (looks almost like ebony).




N frame round butt Boot grips, fairly dark Cocobolo




N frame round butt extended boot grips, Macassar Ebony (old Buck 110 folders had Macassar Ebony handles)

I prefer the checkered grips, the two smooth ones I got off of the internet, used.  Just couldn't pass up a good deal.

They are definitely worth the wait, but most internet auction sites are asking 2-3X list price for them.

Damned crappy cell phone camera--makes them look pixelated.  They're nearly flawless in person, so to speak.

My hands aren't large but the full size Spegels with fingergrooves fit me very well. 

When my next order comes around I'll be ordering more like this one (N frame, K square) and some round butt Ks for my 2.5"  66.

The hard part really was trying to figure out which grip design would work best for me, and choosing the wood.  Since Craig's now in his 60s and is starting to talk about retirement, I figure I'll order the nicest wood he's got, plus I'll be ordering for future guns.  I'm set for HP and 1911 grips, now my focus is on the revolvers.

Ahrends were a good second choice for me but now that Kim is out of business the prices on his grips have escalated into the standard-grade Spegel range.  I won't pay that for Ahrends, I'd rather have Spegels.

What are their emails and numbers?   I got time on my hands (when I'm not selling stuff, that is) :thumbsup:

They're not my only Spegels.  His HP grips are the best.
