We received pics of a lot of beautiful firearms. You can check them out for your self here and here. And while not everyone shared the same idea of what constitutes a barbecue gun, we would never presume to tell you what you should or shouldn’t tote to a cook-out. Anyway, after due consideration, the winner of our barbecue gun contest is Peter C. . . .

That lovely creature above is a 1950s-vintage S&W .38/44 Outdoorsman, converted to .45 Colt by Hamilton Bowen, with gold-inlaid cylinder, and monogramed ivory grips by Paul Persinger. And for shining above all others, Peter will receive a stealthy Minuteman Cabinets 21″ handgun cabinet. Congrats.

  1. I don’t think my Glock would have a chance in hell of winning against that stunning piece of functional art.

    Congrats, Peter!

  2. All I can say is “Wow!” and thank you very much. And special thanks to Hamilton Bowen and Paul Persinger, who do phenomenal work.

    • Very nice! I have had the opportunity and privilege to handle a few Bowen-touched revolvers, and each of them looks great, SOUNDS great, and shoots great. Your conversion is in my favorite chambering, and it looks stellar. Thanks for sharing, and congrats!

  3. Not only a beautiful wheel gun, but the composition layout is very nice.
    I’m intrigued by the ten dollar bill.

    Congrats Peter!

  4. I’ve always wondered how revolvers of that era can appear simultaneously futuristic and classic. I beautiful gun in a very well composed picture.
