Does this qualify as a BBQ Gun?

Post by TedH »

I treated myself this week and bought my first Kimber 1911. A Commander size Pro Raptor II, 45 ACP, of course.
It came with very serviceable Zebrawood grips, but I thought I'd dress it up with a set of SK Grips made from 10,000 year old Mastodon Ivory with a blue/gray/black tone. It's not as perdy as some, but its the nicest 1911 I've had. Haven't time to shoot it yet, but I have no doubt it will shoot as good looks.

This is acceptable

I just re joined the 1911 club myself a few days ago. Mine are not bbq worthy, but may do fine at a crawfish boil

In short, YES!

Nice looking Kimber. If I ever get back into owning a 1911, Kimber is very near the top of the short list.

The mastodon ivory is a great addition.

I believe that qualifies! None of mine do, but work well for a chili cookoff!

I don't have anything that qualifies as a Barbecue gun. That mastodon ivory looks good.

I still need to get some proper leather ordered for this Raptor.

Thinking about something like this Cobra skin from Simply Rugged.

Ted, you chose well! Eager to see it paired with its new holster -- and read your range reports.

Wow!

I was inquiring about some worthy leather for my new python not long ago ! That setup seems appropriate - although I had more of a field grade basket weave setup in mind
