One of My Holy Grail Pistols has Arrived






It's been a long time coming but I was finally able to make it happen. It wasn't an easy decision either but sometimes you have to follow your gut instincts. Thank God I have an understanding wife. Full range report and some good pics to follow. I think I might have set some sort of record because the shipping was $190 from CA.

$190!!! This must have been hand delivered by some CA politician, right?

I'm glad you got it, Jeff.

You certainly deserve it and I'm very happy for you, my friend.

Surely someone of your taste and discernment would choose a K frame .38.

Thanks Brian, it's all your damn fault by the way. I don't have it in my hands yet but it's sitting at my dealers. I took Monday off so I could go get it registered and pick up some ammo.

Great choice but all my Grail guns have a rear sight.

If you OC it you will prevent a lot of speculation.

A pistol like that is certainly worth taking a day off for.
