I agree OD, I like it a lot better. Feels a lot better in the hand also.

Wish you were close enough Bud, I would be glad to let you have a go with it.

I need to do something with the frame, I would like to nickle with hard chrome over it but I may get something to do myself for now. Maybe gunkote or duracoat. I think I may do a high cut on the front strap and dehorn just before I do that. I was thinking about checkering the frint strap myself but maybe not. I can take them either way.

I gotta find a fricken place to shoot, everyone that lived in the boonies bailed out.

Yea, that would be pretty sweet. It also makes the aluminum very durable.
