    So I have 2 guns that Dave has been connected to previously. A SCG he built when he was still at Colt and a Delta he modified for me 2 years back. Both great work.

    I have loved the look of Dave's EVO build on here, but that is a big step up in price for me from the pool I play in that typically tops out at 2k or less.

    Anyway, emailed Dave a build idea a week back just to see how far away I was from saving up the money for it and he replied back that he had one he had been building in the shop that would match up with my build exactly.

    I was still a little shy on the money and not completely certain I was ready to commit....that kind of change on a factory mint parker shotgun is one thing.....but I took the plunge.

    If ya'll don't hear from me again, it probably means my wife used it to finish me off... :)

    The guys at EVO are great to deal with and build some quality guns too.

    They built/upgraded 4 Colts for me and then I had them build me 10mm EVO Elite using their frames and slides and couldn't be happier.

    There is a company by the name of Tiffany's that makes therapeutic devices out of fine metals and rare stones. From what I've observed, simply giving one of these devices to a woman is enough to make her forget why she hates you.

    P.S. If you take my advice, you should know that you're taking advice from a man who lives alone with a cat.

    I am quite familiar with the T&Co establishment. My wife has enjoyed several high quality pieces from that store including her engagement ring.....However, my wife is .....lets say very frugal. She would never have purchased said items for herself and giving her a similar piece to compensate for the expenditure on the EVO would probably just result in a quicker death....:)

    Being the man that Dave is he sent me pics of the gun as it currently is. He's gonna fit a Stan Chen Magwell on it and send it off to be ION Bonded I believe and it will be good.

    The rear sight is one he posted a while back on facebook about building himself, and I thought it looked good so he is sticking it on there.

    Will be polished IB with a silver trigger, hammer, and barrel.

    Do not feel too bad I am in the same boat! After my Smith and his Company decided they would build a custom 9x23 for me which I have been wanting for a long time sent a deposit check.

    If you have a frugal wife, consider yourself blessed, even if your Evo results in temporary harm.

    Who is building the 9x23? That's an awesome round with some serious snap. Good luck.

    Rob at Cabot is going to do the first one coming from them. We speced it out with what I wanted done. Going to be an awesome piece when it is finished!
