When I thought my fishing days were behind me I was into shooting and everything that comes with it: reloading, smelting lead, casting bullets, making bullet lube and a little gunsmithing on Rugers. Or a lot if you're ocd. The first snow made me stir crazy the other day so I picked up one I forgot about and finished putting it together. Originally it was 357 but now it's a 45 with parts from Colt and another brand of gun and I thought I'd take a pic to share. It's as much fun as remodeling a boat. This one is probably number 15 or so. With the help of a welder and a machinist I turned some into fixed sights like the original Colts and one or two have brass grip frames and also custom hammers. Some wear grips I made from burl walnut. I was so into it I took a gunsmithing class at an NRA campus but I only do this with my own guns. I got to be a fairly good shot back when my eyesight was better. These days I'm more pumped about getting back on the water.
