    something new from my hubby

    The new GRIPS are made of Cherry. The old ones are made from what ever they have in the Philippines.

    Very cool, Dawn, and nice work on Brian's part. I don't recognize the pistol model. Whatcha got?

    That looks like a Rock Island Armory compact 1911 pattern pistol. Made in the Philippines. I would hope it is in .45 ACP, but could also be 38 Super or 9mm Luger.

    Very cool. I'm interested in the IDPA, but the closest matches are not real close to where I live. Plus, I'm trying to watch my expenses pretty closely these days, and I suspect pistol competitions are a slippery slope much like woodturning.

    Nice gun and grips Dawn! Good one Hubby!!!
    Thinking of doing some checkering? I don't like gloves and the kids are putting it to me at our gun range in the back pasture, making me sweat more and more so I would need checkering in order to hold it consistently.
    Good luck on the shooting!! My wife and two girls and I love shooting .22's out back at our range.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    most competitions are free to Women so I'm lucky in that department, but as I get to the more regulated competitions money might be an issue also my husband and I are going to start reloading our own ammo
