    Every once in a while the stars line up just the way you want 'em to.

    Forget Brownells your work should be displayed all over the world if not in a museum. Congrats on the cover!!!

    Thanks everyone!
    BTW...These guns should be featured in The American Handgunner Magazine in the near future. The American Pistolsmiths' Guild is raffling these off. $20.00 a ticket. You can't beat it.

    Thanks Again everyone. I just finished a really nice Gov't Model as a presentation piece for the Commander of the 23rd Fighter Squadron USAF.
    I'll post some pictures when I'm able to take good ones.

    Brian, I just received my catalog so I can see the pictures in all their glory and I am speechless. "WOW" is totally inadequate. Your artistry is perfectly displayed, and it’s just one more reason for me to hope to be able to have you work on a gun for me some day. Congrats!
