    Everyone speaks highly of Ted Yost and I have the utmost confidence in his craftsmanship. I just that I can't stand not having my .45 around. This is worse than waiting for Christmas!

    I know it's gonna be pretty. I know it's gonna be fine. I know I only have about a month to go. It's just that a month is soooooo long.

    How do you guys deal with the custom gun delay? Should I run out and buy another Colt? Should I buy just any old gun that catches my eye? I really could use a Smith 66 or 686, I think. Maybe an Remmy 870 or Mossy 590?

    Will a new knife tide me over?

    Here's wishing godspeed to Mr. Yost. I'm dyin' here!

    Thanks for listening.

    You NEED some (SEVERAL!) back-up guns just for such EMERGENCIES!

    If you do not have a Remington 870 yet, get one ASAP. The only things made by Man that will last longer are the Pyramids and Stonehenge.

    And a good pump's so versatile, from the instant gratification of blasting those evil little clay pigeons into smoke to the comforting feel when things go bump in the night.

    I agree with you too, Critter. If one of my guns "goes down" or is shipped off, I have a couple of backups. When my Beretta was at "Berettaland" for sight work I could use my PT-111, a 4" revolver (.38 spec.) or in a pinch, my P32. - No major worries.

    In fact, if I feel I have an "increased threat level" I carry 2 guns using a shoulder rig with spare mags on my belt.
