Royal II

As suggested, I went the the LGS and asked if they could expedite the process and GIVE ME MY GUN NOW! Maybe it was the fake limp or tears, but they said "We'll find it..." Ten minutes later I walked out (forgetting to limp) with my precious.

This is the first pic, as soon as I got in the car. The pic doesn't do it justice because in terms of being "stunning" as they say on the web site, it is...as advertised. I'd say drop dead gorgeous is more accurate.

The blue color is beautiful...more blue than it looks on the web site. The bone grips look exactly like the pic from Kimber, but the camera phone can't capture such a subtle color. I bought a Hoppe's cloth because the polished flats are quite shiny and show fingerprints. Tonight I'll strip and clean and oil it in preparation for the first range trip.

OMG! I pulled it out of the case to take a pic here in my office and it was even more beautiful than it was an hour ago!

It's hard to photograph because it is so shiny.

She is a beauty.

You will have to fight your son and possibly your wife to keep that one. When she sees it, she will understand.
