    Gorgeous! Nice job on the finish. Those grips compliment it very well.

    That's beautiful. Is this going to be a keepsake or a shooter?

    Help me out here... I've never quite understood what BBQ gun is:

    Is it a gun that you show off to people at social gatherings or is it a gun that you carry at such gatherings?

    Very, very nice. The Royal Blue is the best-looking firearm finish that ever was, outside of color case hardening.
