    New grips for my Ruger New Vaquero. This gun came with factory wood laminate birdshead grips, which are not bad, but too “modern” looking for a cowboy gun. I first tried a pair of black polymer grips (shown below), which was a better look, but the fit was not the best. So I had a local grip maker custom make a set of wood grips using the factory grip panels as a pattern – they are made of Mesquite – can’t get much more Texas than that! Very happy with the new grips (not happy with the photo I took of them).

    New Mesquite Grips - prefect fit and a better look

    Polymer grips – if you look closely you will see where they do not completely cover the grip frame in a few places.

    New El Paso Saddlery Street Combat holster to tote my Colt Super 38. IMO one of their best "modern" rigs. You can’t beat the quality of EPS holsters – well, once you actually get them (Midway had this one in-stock). I am still waiting on an EPS western holster I ordered in April – it should be here “any day now.”

    The bird’s head grip was originally designed for Colt Derringers in the 1850s. In 1877, Colt incorporated the distinctive style into full-frame revolvers called Bird’s Head Colts

    My latest addition, a replica 1863 Sharps Sporting Rifle with vintage-style 4x scope.

    Now here it is with the rest of my Sharps "family". However, one of those is not as it seems...

    Yeah, two of my dogs photo-bombed me. One is a Cocker, the other a Springer.
    In the second pic, the 1874 (top) was laying at a wonky angle so it doesn't look right.
    Here's a better shot of the 1874.

    Beauty? Nope. Pure working gun. I still have it and often give some thought to having it restocked in decent walnut. Once I do that I'll post pictures. All my African battery needs work. The .404 also needs a new stock because the one it has now is an ugly '50's Monte Carlo. The .318 needs a new front sight and a reblue. I haven't been in any hurry because I don't see another safari on the horizon. Should that change I'll move swiftly you may be sure.

    The cleanest CZ 52 around. I think it's only been test fired. My other one is in really good shape as well, it's my shooter but when I saw this I started drooling all over the glass on the counter.

    You know what I imagine. Some dumb kid my age probably came in and traded this down for a cheap AR.

    Love those M 41's. Mine is identical , the long barrel model. I do have a sport barrel from the old Gil Hebbard guns that's 5 -5 1/2 I with a red ramp front sight. Both are extremely accurate. I also have a couple of K frame revolvers, K 38 and K 22 but both are 6" barrels.

    Wifey cannot drive anymore. Oldest son needed a new "family" vehicle. So she took this in last night as a down payment on her Explorer.

    He had JES Rebore it to .35 Whelen. Originally 30/06. He was going to use it for a new elk rifle. But he just can't seem to wean himself of his Shiloh Sharps or his .300 H&H. I dunno what her plans are for it. I stuck it in the gunsafe.

    Been a busy summer. Visits here are brief. Leave for New Mexico mountains in about 2 weeks. Hope all are staying cool! Will check in when I can!
