Open letter to Cucamonga Kid.

Dear Sir,

You are truly a gentleman and a man of your word. Honestly I was surprised tonight when I got back in town from a doctors visit and my wife handed me a package and I realized it was the grips you said you were going to send to me. I was not prepared however, when I pulled them out expecting a standard set of factory grips and cast my eyes on a beautiful set of hand made cocobolo grips. Good grief they're beautiful. I was stunned at your skill and remarkable craftsmanship. The fit and finish is on par with the finest custom grips I've ever seen. Perfectly flat,square, and true and detailed precision inletting of the back!
I have to ask, are you a gunmaker or perhaps a tool and die maker? They are awesome. If you will sell them to me I'll buy another solo and have one for day and one for night. I bygod love them!

Again thank you not only for their loan but for being a man of your word.

Well Dale, I think you will find that is the way a lot of our members roll around here. Atta Boy Cuca!

I am not surprised.

Dale they are yours to keep I hope you enjoy them and I'm pleased to hear you got them so quickly. I just like to play with wood sometimes and I made those for my first solo; wasn't crazy about the black ones.
