I've occasionally seen copies of Steel Canvas on the Bargain shelves at Barnes & Noble. Don't know how much they are asking, but I'll have to pick up a copy for myself next time I'm there, assuming they're stocking it of course.

    Impossible? Not really...  ;)

    I believe you misread, sir  ;).



    Especially for the ISBN. It'd be impossible not to find with that.

    Taking out my contractions (IIRC that's what those little devils are called): "It would be impossible not to find with that ('that' being the isbn)."

    Cool thing about those are that any database anywhere, you plug in that number and it'll pull it up. Was basically nerding out over that aspect of it  :coffee.

    As someone who writes research papers, you come to love that little ISBN number, cos losing an electronic source is a b____.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    Well I think I found the guy to do the engraving. Found a guy named Jim Downing. 

    These 2 pictures sold me:



    The first one I really like, except the gold, because it incorporates the S&W logo.

    Okay guys, an update on the the Court/ BBQ Gun project.

    First: The pistols

    I recently snagged a P&R S&W Model 66 for a steal, at least a steal for today's prices. I have my eye on a police trade in Mk III Hi-Power that is good mechanically but the finish is almost gone. But it'll have to reblued anyway so no big deal.
    I talked to Mr. Jim Downing who will be engraving both firearms. He is running 9 months to a year on engraving so it'll be a while before that'll happen. He is a very pleasant individual and I look forward to seeing the finished product in the future. 

    The Hi-Power will have similar engraving as this 1911:


    The Leather:

    I've spoken with Luke and a rig is in the works for the Hi-Power I'm glad to say. Just hashing out details and the like.
    For the S&W, I've got an order in with Purdy Leather. 
    The holster will be in this style with similar carving:

    With a new ranger style belt:
    And a matching speedloader carrier and dump pouch:

    For a carved holster, you can't go wrong with Old West Reproductions.  The fully carved holster on the home page for their website is mine.  When I called Rick in August to order a holster I asked if I could have one just like the one on his website, and Rick responded that he would sell that holster to me.  Pretty cool.  I ordered my holster with a cartridge money belt.  It took a while to get it, but I was very impressed with the quality of Rick's workmanship.  Here is the link.  http://www.oldwestreproductions.com/

    I bought a Ruger Vaquero in .357 magnum to put in the holster, and right now I am saving up money for real ivory grips and a tasteful engraving job.

    Pictures to follow in two years when I finally get it done!

    I don't have the fancy gun, but the holster works. :) CZ P-09 in a High Noon Slide Guard in bison hide.
