GunDiva, thank you for posting for Mama Tink's tag!! Like you, I am somewhat breaking the rules on the photo op, since I have yet to get around to putting pictures in actual folders.
And since this IS a gun friendly zone, we needed to have some gun "porn", right?
I dug through and found the eighth picture of Dear Husband's first custom job:
His Springfield Armory 1911 .45ACP.
(Pay homage to the Prophet, John Moses Browning!)
main spring housing
added magazine well
added front strap
I'm thinking there was more, but for the life of me I can't remember all of them. When this project started, it was a plain jane, base model 1911.
Ended up kinda nice looking!
It did find a new home. Dear Husband plans on creating another one, and said he will gladly pimp himself out to customize for other folks.
One last note from Dear Husband:
"Attention All Shooters:
Keeping your booger hook OFF the bang button will keep you from NEGLIGENTLY discharging your firearm into the FLOOR! Placing the firearm on the table and asking for help (not sweeping me with a loaded weapon when you turn to ask for help) will keep YOU from getting shot with an INTENTIONAL discharge from MY weapon!!!!!
Y'all think about that one.....
