I am glad that someone had fallen into some bucks and can afford guns like those. I would love to have an engraved pistol however it won't help my shooting any but they sure are purty!!!! I would be constantly wiping off fingerprints as I would be playing with it all the time. As far as the grips go, I have some reservations. I would love to have a set of mammoth ivory or even camel bone but I have always had the tendency to use Pachmayr grips. I had the privilege of meeting Frank and Nan Pachmayr years ago, and he was such a gentleman, and she a lady and I told them how I admired their products. He gave me a nice set of pistol grips for one of my guns. They aren't fancy but has the Pachmayr medallion on them although very worn now. He was a big contributor to Ducks Unlimited and I was allowed to preview all the guns that he had endowed to D.U. I happen to pick up a shotgun (20 gauge) and noted how well it fit. It turned out to be a Parker double with single trigger. Value was around 50K. I asked Frank if there was a fondling charge and he just smiled and put it back in the case. Nicer people one would never meet. End of story but it's one I can tell my grandkids and others who care.
A friend of mine's next door neighbor loves Ruger's, and has quite a collection.....................I've never seen all of them, just some pics, but I think with rifles and handguns, he probably has 150 Ruger's alone, not counting the rest. I have seen some of his cowboy guns and holsters. A thing of beauty. Nice pics there.........................................nice holster and conches.
