    I was very motivated today and quite board so I started pulling guns out of the safe and did the grips dance. I was quite surprised that Esmeralda makes the grips for Volkmann and even more surprised he doesn't use Challis GB. I bought these "slim" carbon fibers a long time ago and this blue'd...

    This is my new Volkmann 45. I commissioned @Gripwright to make me a set of Chittam Burl with VP Medallion grips. As usual Bob leaves nothing to be desired. I wish my photography skills were equal to the beauty of this pistol and grips @Limited 10 take notice. Once you get your grips .... you...

    I saw an Instagram post about Volkmann and I was hooked. I found this blue'd bobtail in 9mm and was all in. I hear they shoot better than they look, if that's true I'll be making one hole in all my targets cause this looks amazing.

    @Jrock9 posted a thread a while back about “ its not the arrow, it’s the Indian” I have always believed that to be true. However I had an experience today that is just another one of GHW Bush’s “thousand points of light” I was out shooting and I had my tricked out 22 with all Volquartsen...

    I may be winding down and looking towards retirement. As gifts to myself, from my wife and kids, I am planning on buying a nice guitar and gun. The guitar decision is easy, want/need a Les Paul. The gun choice is a little harder. I'm an enthusiast like most of you addicts, not loyal to one...

    One of you guys should outbid me on this Volkmann. I called the shop selling it, they said it looks like a safe queen. I'll be happy if I win the auction, but wouldn't mind putting the funds towards the new propane insert, tank, etc. http://www.gunbroker.com/item/717753202

    I liked the gold bead and 3 hole trigger as looks go, but as my eyes age, decided to go with F/O's on all my range guns. And might as well work towards all my 1911's having the same trigger. Before: After:

    Well I did it. Like many of you I have had a long standing obsession with JMB creation. This obsession has taken me through almost every custom shop in the USA. The one shop that has alluded me has been Stan Chen Custom....largely because the cost of admission has always intimidated me. What I...
