Looks like I have my plan...
I'll contact Sack Peterson for my grips.
After that, I plan to have it engraved (A coverage) in American Scroll, with the old Colt advert on the backstrap:
"Be not afraid of any man,
no matter what his size.
When danger threatens
call on me, and I will equalize."
Just not sure who I want to have do the engraving yet...
THEN I hope to have it refinished in Carbona Bronze by Doug Turnbull.
She'll be quite a looker when I'm through...
