I think I'll speak for everybody when I say:

More! We want more pictures! :lol:

Also, a group portrait of all involved in the project with the LTW banner in the background would be cool.

Sure wish I was there instead of setting here looking at a desk full of loan files!

I can tell you that the pictures are nice, but the guns are truly amazing in person. I was lucky enough to make the trip this year - well worth it for the chance to meet Ted, Mrs. Ted, Ned, Mark, and Tim. A genuinely nice group of guys and gal and the pistols are true works of art.

ps I wish you all no ill will, but now that I've seen the LTW ## 1 and 2 (and the leather that goes with them), I hope I win both of them. :shock:

Thanks,

It's late. Everybody has been busting hump.

That said, here's my take.

Kudo's to the Y-B crew for doing SOOOooooo much prep work in getting our OUTSTANDING booth built & set up!

Now - on to the display. Breathtaking. Serious gun pron. Without a doubt the most incredible collection of customs that has EVER been displayed under one roof. Period.

The standard of excellence has been raised to a level never seen before. THAT, I guarantee. We're thinking of hiring maid and fresh towel service to help in wiping the tears and drool from the area of the LTW booth

It has been a pleasure meeting so many of you and putting faces to the names, and I look forward to the next three days of meeting and chatting with even more of you.

Lights out.

teasing those of us who couldn't go this year with pictures is just mean....


Now that my sarcastic humor has found an outlet, I have to say that those are some of the most breathtaking customs I've ever seen. (wait, can I say 'breathtaking' and still keep my man credentials?)



IS ANYBODY GONNA TELL US WHO WON?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Unbelievable! What attracts me most about the 'smiths associated with LTW is the concentration on functionality and the spare elegance of the final products. The SHOT display demonstrates that same design mentality and is the perfect backdrop. Now, having said that I need to keep this from just being another "me too, your great!" kind of post so...

All that mechanical genius around and no one noticed the the upper and lower units on that Windex bottle are reversed? It looks like a suicide special and someone's going to put their eye out. :shock:

:D Absolutely awsome! The booth, the contents of the booth, the photos that you're posting for all of us to view. Y'all have a great time (I think you already are) and thanks again for posting photos for us.

I know the results will eventually be announced, but do we know who was the luckey guy/gal to win LTW#1? Alternatively, you might consider just releasing the number of the winning ticket.......

Good eye, Kevin! Heck, you didn't expect that Windex bottle to go unscathed with so many custom makers in one spot. Ned even wanted to put a compensator on it.........
