The similarity and the thread of commonality - as I see it - is Refined... There is a Refined crew here; suitable for such a refined piece!   ::)  Well, there always has to be an exception to proove the rule they say.  I've not achieved refinement but have achieved an appreciation of such!   ;)

Mr. Jody Hudson:

I'll take "refined."  I'm not sure that I deserve it, but most of the others around here do.  In the absence of rebuttal, I'll take ithe accolade with appreciation.

Interesting thought Jody!

The ''Pup'' sure is refined but - my only claim to be ''refined'' does I think have something to do with an analogy to crude oil...... and age!

As I have gotten older .. I have been thru various stages of fractional distillation .. and ''cracking'' ..... such that now perhaps (if lucky) I might claim to have reached 87 octane .. just good ol' Regular refined! :D

I am working on trying to make it to at least 92 octane ... but - having been mandated long ago to be leadfree, that may not be so easy! ;D

(Thinks - maybe time to switch to methanol and nitromethane!)

sbrenner - may I jump in and say a big welcome to you Sir!  :)

Well .. seems like for most part I was right .. but OTOH am more than delighted that we have some balance by having a goodly number of younger folk also.  That is great.

>>I am 51...which is young to my Dad's generation but old to my kids.  Don't know what that means here...  

I too have given up some fine firearms over the years.  No regrets, as I was doing what needed to be done to care for my family.  However, some of those guns were very special to me...like my Father's General Officer's Colt .32 and his Colt Woodsman Match Pistol...had the Elephand Ear Grips and was the 84th off the production line...both guns in the boxes, with papers.  These were my Dad's favorite guns, but I know he would have understood and supported me in the decisions to sell given the circumstances (had been forced out of my job due to work related injury and hadn't had a pay check in four months).

Today I own two small businesses and am in the unique position to be buying not one, but two R9s (wife only knows about one though...shhhhh)...TW<<
