I must be feeling better, because I woke from an afternoon nap thinking about my Turnbull 1911. When I wake up thinking about guns, it's usually a good thing.For the last week I've been waking up thinking about snot.
Anyway, what I was thinking was that the Turnbull 1911 featured in last season"s SHOOTING GALLERY episode on Wild Bunch shooting (where my Sweetie and that bowler-hatted devil Turnbull conspired to build me a custom 1911, those scalawags!) was that it is so good it needs to be morphed into my semiauto BBQ Gun. Get Doug to color caseharden the frame , which looks just soooooooooo cool. Save my pennies until I can afford some real, honest to goodness ivory grips, although bark mammoth ivory would certainly be considered. I suspect a couple of things from Wicked Grips might be forthcoming. And the leather! That'll take months of agonizing! LOL!
I hope this is a good sign vis-a-vis recovery.
I did locate and but some Federal 7.62/.308 168-gr Match, which the Colt 901 I have prefers, which is a Good Thing!
