Default When your family claims your S&W

So my mom is getting up there....turns 75 this year. Her arthritis has gotten bad enough she cannot rack a slide easily anymore. Well she saw my S&W 67-5 I just got back from S&W for warranty work and she wants it.

She hates the stock rubber grips and the Altamont target conversions I bought for it are too big for her hands. So I dug out a Tyler T grip and some pearl panel grips from my parts bin from my FFL days/gun show trips and slapped this together. Kind of looks like an old fashioned 60's to early 70's pimp gun, but she likes it.

Being a former Sheriff deputy that carried a somewhat similar sized Colt Trooper in the day, she feels right at home with this. And I get her old, barely used 60's era Manurhin/Walther PP for trade in. She still had the box for it too...so I have a vintage gun to add to the collection or trade in on a pre lock Model 66 if I find one.
