Barbecue rig on a Weber budget

While, it is a bit cold still, it is starting to be the season when people start thinking about barbecuing around here. I was wondering what you guys would suggest in a show off handgun and holster.

Now here is the challenge: $500. Yes, for the gun and holster.

I know this might be absolutely insane, but barbecue guns are all about what people want, and I want to give this a shot. I know I'm not going to get a gun with tons of scroll work and a gold trigger and hammer. I'm guessing there won't be any autoloaders in the mix at this price, and I'm open for unusual suggestions. I could go out and buy something quite a bit more expensive, but I like the idea of this challenge.

Any suggestions are welcome, and feel free to ask any questions if you want, I look forward to hearing your suggestions.

Best value in a good and holster that "look" good are the single action revolvers. Get a vintage Lawrence holster to fit and you're good to go.

Given that you probably don't need to shoot the thing too often, here's one way to do it for between $421 and $491, plus shipping, all brand new, and you could have it in your hands tomorrow if you really needed it and paid extra for shipping. No FFL required, either.

CZ 82 and have it high-gloss re-blued or nickled by Springfield, or another quality armorer. Put some mother-of-pearl grips on the blued gun, or a nice mesquite burl on the nickled gun and show it off.

You're probably not missing too much, people like to bring guns to show off on occasion, often at barbecues or picnics. I know there are people out there that would go out and buy an old museum quality Colt SAA, get some scroll work on a minty old S&W, or have a 98% Colt 1911 from 1911, throw it in a holster, and like to show it off. I'm thinking about that, but I want to see what you could get on a budget.

Century has cheap Mk IV Webley's right now. Get one and an old military flap holster, add a whip & you've got Indiana Jones' rig from "Last Crusade". Do a nice high gloss reblue on it & it'll be a good conversation starter.

Make it an early S&W M&P for the "Raiders" look.

Ok got it, do they have shooting competitions or just for show? Think nickel plate or polished stainless. Maybe that birdshead model Ruger used to offer or something like these:

BBQ guns are a very "Texas" thing, are generally limited to SAA, though a Walker would look nice too, and 1911s. They are normally heavily adorned with gold plate and scroll work. Almost never shot and purely for show. And as for it being too cold to grill. I fire up my Weber kettle grill about once a week. Grilling in the snow is great. Only time I do not light it is if there is too much wind.

Im in the process of a BBQ gun... its a 1911 Dan Wesson 10mm that i had bobbed and im looking at laser scroll work and my grips are being made...

I don't have a weber, but do have a BGE. A BBq gun, although nice to have the really fancy ones, is whatever you want it to be. have a 1943 mixmaster 1911. snadblaster it, cold blued and looks gray. Hammer, beavertail and slide release arestainless buffed to a high polish, along with the sides of the front sight. Square trigger and different grips for different occasions. Carry it at functions in a yaqui holster.

Wouldn't a shoulder rig be more convenient for a gun to be worn whilst BBQing?

Oh, and it makes me wonder if a black powder pistol that close to a hot grill is a good idea.

Get a 4" or 6" S&W 686, take some Flitz or other metal polish to it to get it to a high sheen. Then shop around for a decent pair of wood grips, or whatever floats your boat. Check local leathershops and gunshows and get a decent holster. You may end up over $500, but not by too much.

Yep. I live in an ultralib fascist state and we still have BBQ guns up here too. A group of friends will get together and BBQ and talk guns and usually have a few more in the car or truck to show also. After all the eating is done everyone goes to the back of the house for a little shooting fun. This usually winds down around dark. Then the guns get put away and the beer comes out. Its how us "right wing nut job terrorist" and "toothless redneck gun toters" have a good time. The other main attraction around here is stuffing envelopes for the ACLU/Democrat Party/ACORN or looking at pictures of Obama and drooling.

hardluk1,

I generally feel the same way, but when I picked up a 6" S&W 686 (no dash) purely for target shooting, I decided to spend a little bit of time giving it a nice polish, and found a nice used leather holster for it that cleaned up quite well. Since this gun lives in the closet, and is only used at the range, I see no reason to not purdy it up. My BBQ gun was born.

Also, I live in an OC state, and attend OC dinners. Its always nice to have a good quality flashy gun to show off.

February 5, 2010, 03:24 PM
Is there a bbq watch

It may be passť now, but a few years ago, watches with "complications" were quite the thing among people who had money to burn and wanted to show it off. A $20,000 mechanical watch that, functionally, was equivalent to a $25 Ironman, may not have been called a "barbecue watch" but it was the same thing -- and frankly, a really fancy engraved gun is still a lot cheaper!

There are definitely cars like that, too. I've seen some street rods and pristine old sports cars at barbecues, and I'm certain those cars weren't daily drivers.:D

Nope. You're not the only one. To me a gun is just a tool. I don't own a single gun I bought for looks. I wear my Glock at work, at Wal Mart, at church, and yes, at BBQs. It's a life preservation tool, not a fashion accessory. Not to mention that I don't think of BBQs as some special event to wear something unique for. BBQing is just one way to cook food in a delicious way. I attach no special significance to either BBQs or the firearm one wears to them. Kingofthehill's comment is very telling of the difference in opinion. To me, a BBQ isn't a special event like a car show or church. It's dinner. That's it.

I picked up this nickel Detective Special (1972) last summer in excellent shape for $500and found the appropriate vintage Buckheimer holster on ebay for $20. I didn't need the gun but it caught my eye, I added a polished Tyler T-grip and the holster cleaned up nice. It is my "Sunday" gun, I wear it if we're going to dinner or visiting my parents or the in-laws, and to the occassional BBQ. Not as fancy as a "real" BBQ gun but I like the way it looks. It works for me and the price was reasonable.

Shop used, get some stamping tools from Tandy, make your own holster.

It's the only way to be sure! $500 isn't a lot of cash. A nice set of grips and a tooled holster can dress up anything but a Glock, which has no business at a BBQ.

Still BBQ is about sharing friendships and food, having a neat piece to show off is only a small part of it.

Down South, where we are still free, BBQs are large and extravagant social events put on by churches, fire houses, neighborhoods, etc. They are not simply small gatherings of family and close friends to eat dinner, but a large social event in the community. As such, you wear nice clothes, drive your nice car, and of course, openly carry your nice gun.

I start off assuming used. I know $500 isn't a lot of cash, but I thought it would bring out some of the more unique ideas, which I would say it has.

This thread has given me some ideas that I wouldn't have otherwise had, namely cap and ball revolvers, and having my single six engraved (don't think I could do that though, it was a gift, and it has too much sentimental value). I appreciate all the ideas, keep them coming!

Maybe I do have a BBQ gun after all. Thought about this last night and yes i may have one. When we have a BBQ pig you would give that pig a little extra for a couple weeks and then take my old 22 colt huntsman and lean over the pin and grab an ear put a round behind that pigs ear. Pull it out ,bleed it, scald it ,gut it. wash it and on the BBQ grill it would go. Does the count as a BBQ gun. hehe

That's a pretty tight budget, these days.

How about a Colt SAA Italian clone in nickel for around $350? Add a used floral carved holster and belt for $100 or so and you should be good to go. Might even be able to add a set of fake ivory or pearl stocks and stay near budget.

Despite having previously lived in Austin for years and having lived in the South for my entire adult life, I've never heard of a "BBQ" gun. Sounds like it'd be the J frame in my back pocket. But, notwithstanding that, I get the idea. So, what I'd suggest would be a LeMat revolver or a Howdah pistol. Those would get conversation started! Cherry's here in G' boro has some items you may wish to consider. Enjoy.

Some guns are things of beauty. Why would you keep them in a safe? I own guns that have so many dings and rubs that dropping them on rocks might not show any new marks. I also have a few that I could wear at formal functions, along with a tux and pearly cufflinks (although I don't own any of those). I shoot them all, and carry the pretty ones when I feel like it. I do need a few more "BBQ" holster rigs to go with my guns. http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m247/matquig/DSC05335.jpg

In the Midwest - where we are not free but may in fact be priced too high if the outflow of jobs is any measure - we too have extravaganza's otherwise known as bar-b-qs, ox roasts, hog/pig roasts, sweetcorn festivals, tomato festivals, pumpkin festivals, home comings (not the high school kind), fund raisers including political, benefits, burgoo's, and so on and so on. We don't attend these events to impress with the bling quotient of our gun, car, clothes, or mistress but to eat ourselves sick on the food du jour which always seems to include plenty of 'carnival/fair' food such as funnel cake, elephant ears, corn dogs, lemon shake ups, French fried potato's, and yes even bar-b-q. But, many of us do carry - concealed usually - as we Midwesterners tend to be fashionably reserved and prone to understatement.

I like the idea of the shiny RIA 1911 with fake pearls as an inexpensive show piece.

This is my BBQ rig. Cost a bit more than $600 although it really wasn't horrible. Gun plus engraving plus ivory stocks plus leather came to about $1,300.

I'm with armedbear and Mcgunner on a black powder pistol. That 1851 Navy engraved looks really nice, or you could go with another model that also looks good and has some good history like a .44 Walker or 1858,1860 army from cabela's. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/pod/horizontal-pod.jsp?_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/catalog/pod-link.jsp_A&_DAV=MainCatcat20712-cat20720-cat20817&rid=&indexId=cat20817&navAction=push&masterpathid=&navCount=7&parentType=index&parentId=cat20817&id=0006120

Anyway what I'm getting at is that I would do a little homework on it's history and when everyone is talking (boasting) about their piece (mostly just price) or there $200 1911 grips. I think it would be cool if you could actually give a little short American history lesson about the gun instead of just what it costs. I think the stainless looks really good, and I don't know your BBQ situation, city, country, suburbs but out here in the country I would load it up with black powder and a wad/newspaper and fire it in the air for the kids. Nothing like a loud boom and a lot of smoke with no projectile to worry about for a good time. We do that at my mom's in the summer and everyone loves when me and my step dad fire off his cannons that he made at work. We do take some safety precautions and use a long wick and fire it from behind the garage with no projectiles. Let me tell you 150-200gr of triple seven followed by a cork or newspaper gets everyone's attention and usually a bunch of laughs when everyone jumps. My two year old son would scream and cackle with laughter uncontrollably every time and that made everyone else almost cry because it was so funny.

Up north, where we are still free

Ahem?

CT: Licensed Concealed and Open Carry - Reasonable May Issue: The licensing statute also contains a "suitability clause" which provides that the issuing authority may deny such application, if it determines that the applicant is not a suitable person to possess or carry a pistol or revolver. The suitability clause applies both to the issuance of new permits and revocation of existing permits.

My initial statement was a joke, but if thats considered freedom, I'm afraid.

Its not that other parts of the country don't have BBQs, its that it used to be, and in some areas, still is expected that you openly carry your finest firearm to these events. Prior to being known as BBQ guns, they were also known as go-to-meeting and courthouse guns.

Bright nickle plated S&W revolvers are also a great idea . . . and American Elk Stags like the Model 19 wears are also a nice touch. Add a dressy holster and belt . . . and you are good to go!
