Those are some nice Colts!

Had to put the Mammoths on before Phil sees it with the posers.
Can't wait to get them to the range and compare them.

BTW, beautiful twins. How can you even tell them apart?

Nice.

Grip screws could use an upgrade.

I got the feeling I'm going to need a new fancy holster and belt also.
Remember, this is my BBQ GUN. Any suggestions? Pictures?

Not bad. Thinking associate grips with screws rather than screws with gun, so not the Colt screws. Didn't Celtic mythology say something about giant creatures of some kind? I forget or maybe just old mind messing with me. In any event, BBQ gun needs as much story telling bs as possible so that's the angle I'd shoot for...something with good bs factor.
