    You can take this is another direction too. Not just a pistol you "put on" for a special occassion- but a special rifle or pistol you take out when company is over to impress them. It is also known as a "conversation piece."

    My buddy has a $4,000 AR (with all the bells and whistles) that he pretty much never shoots.... and yet I think he gets more pleasure out of seeing the reaction to it by weekend guests. :rolleyes:

    the legal definition of a sat. night special actually refers to the melting point of the guns frame.

    How about when they come that way from the factory? Taurus has models like that, my friend has one in .38super with faux pearls, gold plated controls, bright stainless, moreof a pimp gun I suppose...

    I have a factory chrome plated Star BM with factory faux pearl grips, the finish is as shiny as a mirror.

    I once polished a beat up S&W 649 to a mirror finish, I eventually stuck some faux pearl grips on it and sold it.

    Some faux black pearl grips of all things, intended for a S&W now reside on a factory nickel Taurus mod 82 4" .38spl I bought a few years ago for $105.

    Anyone have a BBQ long gun? I've seen an iviry stock on a gun owned by Pofirio Diaz of Mexico. I have a Remington Nylon 66 with a factory chrome finish and a Norinco SKS "honor guard" parade rifle also with a chrome finish.

    It's a southern thang. :neener:

    wish we could import the tradition up north.

    Maybe a "Sunday gun"

    Do you think a dressed up Sig Sauer would be appropriate?

    They're standard issue for Texas DPS, including the Rangers. Although I believe they're still allowed to use personal firearms, so that might be a moot point.

    If its not pulled pork, its not BBQ.

    You can keep your beef brisket. It tastes ok, but its no barbecue.



    And where does one get the fancy scrolling, etc done to his 1911 or other?

    Kharn- And remember SaxonPig's statement: George Patton can kiss my ass. I happen to like pearl stocks (although I don't currently own any).

    Uh oh, you might end up catching hell for that! :p

    My sister-in-law is a native Texan, and she;s quite close-minded about the BBQ issue. Pulled pork does not qualify. On the other hand, my brother and I are native North Carolinians, so we're definitely of the pork persuasion.

    Now if you Tennessee folk would stop putting that weird red sauce on the pork, we'd all be OK. I can't help it, I was raised on Eastern NC BBQ.

    Eastern NC barbecue's world class.

    Brisket with tomatoes in the sauce can be phenomenal, too. The problem is that people use the same word (BBQ) for both, but the two are different things. :)

    Harry Curve,

    Now that's just pure class in my opinon. Nice piece. You can always add the ivory later.

    Man up here in Canada we can't even have hand guns out in public let alone use them as a fashion accessory.

    Even if you were legally allowed to, most people would poopoo on you for brining a weapon to a social gathering, even if there's a resonable chance a five-hundred pound bear is going to crash the party (which happens)

    Heck I've seen people lay into kids for bringing pocket knives camping.

    Just another reason to move... or is that several? Fewer bears more guns and grilled meat.

    Heathens.

    A BBQ gun is:

    Nickel plated

    Engraved

    Ivory gripped

    Carried in a floral carved Threepersons holster, with a matching belt. Visible cartridges, if any, must also be nickeled.

    A BBQ gun is not:

    Plastic

    Automatic (1911s in .38 Super excepted)

    Gold colored.

    Thank you for allowing me to enlighten you.

    :D

    Having been raised in North Louisiana near the Texas border and now living in Memphis for the past ten years I can say without a doubt, beef beats pork every time. Who in the hell came up with the idea that coleslaw should go on top of a BBQ sandwich?
