Re: How to customize your 1911 grips
My wife does beaded and fused glass jewelry (makes her own beads and fused glass) and needed to photograph her work. I was meandering around in Walmart while she was shopping and I stumbled across a little set up from Kodak (I think) that provided a opaque box and lights for indirect soft light that didn't break the bank. Don't know if they still carry them but you might take a look in their photo dept. It just might fit your needs.
"The Utopian schemes of leveling [redistribution of the wealth] and a community of goods [central ownership of the means of production and distribution], are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the crown.[These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional."
