Having this gun for the weekend is like borrowing your buddy's totally tricked out 1970 Chevelle. You don't want to give it back but you want to make sure everyone sees you driving it. Had to snap some more photos of this one. The work Chuck, Tim, and Stan did on this is really something.

The polished LTW logo inlaid in silver.

One of my favorite photos of Mr. Rogers work.

A shot of Mr. Chen's work on this pistol. Looks better up close. The thumb safety is IMO perfect.
Image

And finally an overall with a little of everyone's work represented. Have I mentioned the checkering is to steal a term from Larry Davidson "chilly" very "chilly"
Image

This was a great weekend. Me and the LTW #1 are tired. In fact she is sleeping right now so keep it down. By the way I named her Eleanor, she seemed to like it. We had a couple of long conversations. :wink:

Wierd though she won't talk to my Jennings. She may be just a little cranky right now.

Adios.

There will have to be a whole new set of superlatives made up for this pistol - none that I have seen even barely apply. I've admired Lous' leather for quite some time, and have always wondered what would happen if he were turned completely loose. Now I know.

It is difficult to scroll up and down these two threads, and remember to breathe at the same time.

That's an impressive pistol! Nice work guys!

BTW, an equally nice job on the photos Steve! What are you using for lighting? That seems to be one of the key factors in getting good gun photos. How about a thread on photo technique and lighting?

Steve's got plenty of time to sleep. At work. We did have a prozac lick put in in his backyard.

Quixote, stay tuned. The info will be forthcoming.

So, Dr. Ted, does this mean you've got 'That Bailey Fellow' on a low salt diet?

The balance is low salt, high lithium, a prozac, and a viagra. You stay pretty chilled out but the blood sure is flowin' :oops:

An absolutely gorgeous 1911, but I'm not surprised given the talent involved, :D

You keep posting pictures, I keep looking, and it's still beautiful.

So Steve, while you were "taking pictures" how did it shoot?

C'mon, I'd drive the Chevelle.

I haven't heard exactly how we get a shot at these beauties. Will you sell raffle tickets or will there be an auction?

There will be a raffle for the LTW guns. We will provide some details as soon as we work a couple of things out. Shouldn't be too long. Thanks for the interest.

Thanks Steve! I figured that was the case.

Tony, nice try... But I'M getting the only ticket sold! :D And for only $1, it's bound to be the bargain of the century!
