  2. BUMP. Price drop. I'll even buy you a Cherry Slurpy when we meet up for the sale.

    Do you have a pic of the other side?

    Have you fired it?
  4. John, give me a few minutes and I should be able to find or take another picture. I haven't fired it, but if you need to know before buying that will give my wife a reason to let me buy some .45 ammo to try it.

    Just trying to verify is its safe to shoot! But a pic or two would be nice.

    Also, is the bluing darker than that pic, or has it gone total patina? (not a bad thing)

    And....do you have any of the clips for it, moons or half moons?
  6. Uploading pics right now. I think the bluing looks a little darker than that. The picture I'm about to upload looks darker, but it isn't that dark in person. I'm thinking about a halfway between the two. I also don't have any clips for it.
