    So what time next year do you get it delivered to you, in it's grand glory. I seem to have lost the delivery date in all these posts.

    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!
    .45 ACP, Because shooting twice is just plain silly!

    Gregory,
    I don't have any idea when the completed and/or delivery date is. Hopefully it will be before too much longer. He only works on it during his spare time and weekends since getting it last June. When I spoke to him this past Sunday, he said he has over 260 engraving hours invested in the gun thus far. Every time he chips away at the gun, (on my request), he has e-mailed me a quick photo or two and explained the processes involved. I thought some of my fellow forum members might also enjoy watching a real gun engraver craftsman at work from start to finish on a plain production S&W 686 (used) and see the thousands of cuts and hundreds of hours involved to produce (what I believe) will be an over the top museum quality engraving job when finally completed. If it's become a problem due to the number of postings I will stop immediately. Please advise.
    Sincerely,
    grasshopper

    Gregory,
    Please advise. If forced to discontinue posting my 686 "fix" engraving progress photo's, I am being forced to take further drastic action. Will you back me up if I tell Mrs. Grasshopper it was your fault?
