Back story
I picked up this Para Ordinance 1911 at an estate sale for $400 with the sole purpose of having judgepacker paint in a sea turtle theme due to my love of them after a few snorkeling trips in Hawaii. After finally getting Ultravox to make up some grips in Koa wood it is now complete and resides in my safe as I'm afraid to shoot it and mess up the paint work.
Thank you to all who participated, there where a number of great entries. We will be doing this again in February, so be thinking of what you want your entry to be.
Pompous, with a touch of elitism.

Thanks to everyone who voted for my gun. Beer is on me I guess.

Anything unattempted remains impossible.

Like coffee? (or tea?)

Congrats Whitey. Now you've even got me thinking I need a fully painted gun.

It is a unique and beautiful pistol. Congrats, Whitey!
Neverthless, she persisted.

I'm pretty sure it's a hearty hand clasp.

So January '15 to now and has this gone anywhere? Must be many 'pecker art works out there but I don't see them or maybe don't know where to look?

But since I am a modest Marine, I'll throw this old example of 'pecker's work. And also note these guns should be used not relegated to being safe queens(or is that kings?) This never fails to get folks asking me about it, some walk away shaking their heads!

It certainly drew my attention. Starmag sounds like an emo-metal band.
