TL’s COLT SAA, .45 Colt 7.5″ BBL, Fully Engraved, One-piece ivory grips in an El Paso holster and belt with nickel rounds

When we announced the winner of our barbecue gun contest, a few commenters bitched about our posting the rest of the pics on our Facebook page. Let’s be clear – no one takes a backseat in Zuckerberg antipathy to me, but the book of faces is a thing and lots of our readers follow us there too as we run posts there that don’t make it to the main page. Still, don’t let it be said that we don’t aim to please. For our Facebook averse friends, here’s a selection of the best of the rest of the entries we received. Enjoy.

JC’s Custom Officers Model with Caspian titanium frame, stainless steel slide and ivory grips


CH’s Vaquero .357 mag


JS’s Talo Ruger SP101


HK’s Sig Sauer 1911 TTT, 45 ACP in an El Paso Saddlery custom holster


WB’s Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt with genuine hand carved ivory grips

  1. “a few commenters bitched about….”

    I don’t care either way about FB, myself, but I think you meant to write “some of our loyal readers/contributors, whose patronage of TTAG keeps the lights on, our bellies (and magazines) full, and forfends my having to get a real job, provided the constructive feedback that….”

    Let’s chalk the, shall we say, typo, up to auto correct, and move on with the understanding that disrespecting the assemblage is bad form.

  2. Looks like a call to El Paso Saddelry is in order. That’s some nice leather to wrap around a deserving piece.
    I also like those personalized ivory grips. Nice touch!

    • Same boat. I couldn’t afford the custom work. That’s why my BBQ gun is also a work horse Ruger.

  3. Thanks for the photos. I washed my hands of Facebook over a year ago, don’t want nuthin’ to do with ’em ever again.
