Default BBQ Guns

Here in the South we have what are known as "BBQ Guns". These are our "dress" guns (Sundy go to meeting) and are generally an expression of ourselves. Your BBQ gun doesn't have to be a large caliber, just something with a little of you expressed.

Several years ago, mine was a Llama 25ACP that was engraved. It was the size of a 380 and shot great and was very accurate. I wish I still had it.

I really like I frames. I currently have 5. My hands are HUGE and I have a hard time handling them, but I love them none the less.

I am currently on the hunt for a Terrier 5 shot 38 S&W. The weight and size is just right for a carry gun and powerfull enough for self defence.

I have an early I frame in 32 with the short barrel. The condition is pretty rough externally, but the bore is great and the operation is OK. The sights are tiny (I'm 57) and I have a hard time seeing them. I am planning to have it made into my "BBQ Gun" Shorten the barrel slightly, .10 ramp front and S&W adjustable rear sight, bead blasted and hard chromed.

Is it a bad thing? I don't think that it is collectable at all.

I know it isn't a man stopper, but a 32 S&W in the head will stop most problems, or at least get me a head start in a foot race.

What would YOUR BBQ gun be. Remember, its a formal occasion gun and doesn't have to be practical, just nice looking.

If you use the search function you'll find a number of threads on this topic over the years. There are some very fancy pistolas owned by forum members that have been posted.

But since you brought it up, here's mine. Years ago I mentioned to my wife that I thought I should have one really fancy gun so she had this one engraved for my 50th BD. I think it's quite utilitarian and I pack it once in a while. Often I wear it when out shooting rifles just to have a belt gun handy.

I have a set of nice combat K-frame grips that I'm thinking of putting a revolver under. I'd love a nickle M10 but will inquire about the DAO M64s J&G has. Yes, just so I can use the grips


P.S. I'm moving to Texas and it's a shame they do not allow open handgun carry.

Sunday "go to meetin gun" a Kimber Ultra CDP with 3" barrel. .45 ACP of course. Other days a mod 66 snubbie or a Glock 30 SF, .45 ACP.

Now that I've fessed up, that 2 of my 3 carry guns are not S&W I hope I am not banned from the forum!! I have lots of other Smiths, some safe queens, and others I shoot frequently.

Please don't send me away!

(And I almost forgot that in the summer especially I will carry a J Frame in a pocket holster.)

Default my nickel model 36

I don't have any BBQ's to go to , but if I did, I would take my nickel m.36 with faux ivory grips and polished manganese bronze Tyler Tee; I think I want to add a tyler trigger shoe, can't decide between polished bronze or polished aluminum. Probably bronze.

Am camera shy, but certainly admire many that have appeared in these threads over the years. Especially Ivory and Engraving. Tooled Leather makes for a trifecta perfecta!

SP, that is a great gun and fine leather!

Dyson

Holy moly that's a beautiful piece. I read an article recently on "Court guns" and that fits the bill perfectly.

I think it would be my Cobra with it's faux ivory finger groove combats. The contrast between the deep blue of the Cobra and the whiteness of the grips is very striking.

This one will have to suffice until I get my Skeeter gun engraved, but it'll work in a pinch.

YES, another BBQ rig thread for me to show off my best rig! Being from Wisconsin I have very little occasion to show this off. I haven't had the Kahunas to exorcise my right to open carry or join an open carry gathering...maybe someday.

I think I've shown you most of my good stuff now except my prized presentation cased 27-2 but then everyone knows what those look like.

Over the last decade or more, this Royal Blue Gold Cup Commander and it's African Ivory grips has been to two Inaugurations, three Weddings and four Funerals. The carry rig has usually been a Galco Windsor. The Windsor is a horizontal carry shoulder holster that is only available for the 191. The entire rig is made of horsehide and the holster is lined with pigskin. I need to photograph it one day



My optional holster is a Galco Concealable belt holster that is made from
Stingray.

More recently, I acquired this scratched up model 686 and it is seeing some Formal wear as well

Whall, it ain't just Sunday go to meetin', or BBQs. There really are other events where its proper.

I have a good buddy, and we've been friends for a long time. His daddy used to go campin' with us, back when he was able. I made points with grandpa Reynolds about 1980. We took our 4wds down to the mountains. Then found the right logging roads into our camp site. I had my oldest along with me, and we drug along his dirt bike. As all young un's needed the proper get ups, he had his pads and all along. Around the campfire that night, instead of enjoying adult beverages, I polished up my boots and my kids boots before I embibed. Ole Pop really liked that. He pointed out over and over he wished his offspring would take care of their gear.

But over the intervening years, I did Ole Pop some favors. He turned diabetic. Our candy division had a huge box of sugar free candy (probably 50#), so instead of tossing it in the dumpster, the purchasing agent dumped it on my desk, asking if I knew anyone who could use it. Yep.

Then a few years later, Ole Pop really needed a cane to walk. He had too much pride. So I parted with one of my sword canes. His son, my buddy, took it to him. He just scoffed at it. Then my buddy said "daddy, this came from Dick, and he thought you'd like it." Again, a null response. So my buddy reached over and tapped it against his easy chair. It made the clank as the knife edge hit the tubing. Ole Pop sat up and took notice. He said "whuts thet?" So my buddy said "I tole you who gave it to you, listen up." So when the old man saw the 18" blad come out, he was all smiles. To him, it wasn't a cane, it was a useful instrument. He walked with it till the day he died.

At his funeral, I wore in my best rig at the time. Granted, it was a Colt. But it was in an HH Heiser, had plenty of gold inlay and elephant ivory grips. Some impertinent young jerk asked my buddy why that guy's wearing a shootin' iron to his daddy's funeral. The answer was simple "cause daddy would have liked it."

Dick, thanks for the story and the reminder of how important it is to think of others feelings, even when they are no longer with us.

Default Model 60

Here's a Model 60 I recently traded for. It was engraved by C. Hunt Turner in the St. Louis area about 1987 according to the officer I got it from, apparently a well known gunsmith in the area. Sorry for the poor picture quality. I'm learning, old dog and all that, you know.

Beautiful, beautiful. I've been looking at a used engraved Colt 1911, but just can't afford it. Now, I'm going to have to see if I can possibly put it on layaway. It's just too pretty to let go if I can help it.

I have one. Its not nearly as fancy as others, but, its actually a more practical dress up gun.

Factory round butt 629 with Executioner stags with my name, rank, badge number and agency engraved in an El Paso rig.

What a great collection of guns and it says a lot about who we are.

I had for a short while my father-in-law's nickle plated 36 3". He had his firearms stored at my house. Right after his death, I asked his 2 sons if the would mind if I kept it. They weren't gun types, and they knew that John would have loved for me to have it. It was to be my BBQ gun, and I carried it at his funeral.

I have since given it to my son, and it is now his treasured BBQ gun. I need to get me one again.

"Well Sir,
I just cobbled it up right here on the ranch...Kinda like the saddle tan ones for everyday wear."

OK, just something you "COBBLED" up. I am impressed. Good work.

P.S. I'm moving to Texas and it's a shame they do not allow open handgun carry.
I just drove up to J&G and got my first S&W, a 64-5 1989 I belive. It will be polished and some "dress grips" for my BBQ gun. New Hogues for every day shootin.

Here's the "before" photo as it came from J&G Monday. Not bad for $230!

I've got a couple of pretty guns, but this probably fits the BBQ definition the best. Sorry it's not a revolver.

Well, this one ain't the fanciest or the prettiest. Matter of fact, it looks kinda plain. BUT, it is the oldest surviving 3rd Model .44 Special yet known. It was in the first shipment of 3rd Models sent to Wolf & Klar in January 1927.

Still shoots very good too.
