   I found a good use for the shot glass you sent me.

  As my rod building progressed I was a bit amazed at the amount of  trash that accumulates.

 As I got a little  better the amount of stuff tossed has become much less. Fewer mistakes on my part means less coffee filters & paper towels  used to wipe off mistakes in finish etc.

 Hated always replacing quality brushes. Your shot glass holds a little Xylene / Xylenol in which I place my brushes.
 Epoxy or any other finish used are simply wiped off & brushes are placed in shot glass with Xylenol.

When needed they are simply blown clean with compressed air & used. Brush remains soft & pliable .. Thanks Alex ... Jeff

 Brett, you made me look at the pic again. Yes it is. The grip insert gives it away. My custom grips suffered through more than 15000 rounds & finally cracked. The factory grips work well for most & are hard to improve on.

 I've won a couple of local IPSC matches with that gun running against auto loaders some time ago. Dont know that I could muster such a thing today. This gun has gone with me overseas where it earned me the name      
     " Gramps " .     I have three other GP100's. Really like them along with my L frame Smiths... JEFF

   Mark, I wish I could I really do. But the world is a much better place because I don't. However I hope to some day fish & sit later with you while you have a Tequila for yourself while also having 3 or more for me.

    Now I can imagine this would be a good time... Jeff
