To say I'm astounded by the overwhelming amount of votes I received would be a gross understatement! I sincerely appreciate all that voted for me especially with all the other great photos to chose from. A big shout out to cw mi who had such an interesting composition; Doogle's great use of color and to pdogkilr with a great shot of that Brown 1911...all nicely done! I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the positive comments as well and a warm thanks for all the kind words. Since a couple of people wanted to see the whole gun, here's a couple of quick shots I took of it. Thanks again everyone!
