Thanks everyone!

Craig - sorry forgot to include you in the list up top. Enjoyed getting to know you as well. And MERCY, what a gorgeous handgun! Nice leather work too!

Junebug - ha, you ain't kidding! More like a kick down that slope. I never should have shot the BFR with their Bisley grip. I'm a believer now.

It was a really educational weekend. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

At one point my wife texted me and asked how it was going, since I'd never met any of these guys in person. My response..."well I'm having a blast - I'm surrounded by handgun hunters and a gunsmith who is the Rain Man of revolvers". She responded with, "So I guess you're never coming home..."
