Last Christmas, my son gifted me with a Sig P238. I love the piece, but never liked the plastic grip panels with which it was issued. I thought the coolest thing for a mini-1911 would be wood double-diamond grips like the big guy. The closest thing I could find were Sig factory grips, but they were emblazoned with the Sig logo- no go.
Back in October, Og had a post about AltamontCorp., a manufacturer (USA!) of handles for things. I checked out their price list, & found that their products were more reasonably priced than the competition. I dithered.
I happened to show the link to the Mrs., & she sprang into action. Since yesterday was the anniversary of myannual orbit, Mrs. DT saw fit to purchase new grips for my P238:
Very nicely made, as thin as the originals, & more grippy to boot. Good goin' Homey, & thanks for the tip Og.
I'm gonna be flashin' my gat all over just to show off...
Mrs. DT & I went out to see a band last Friday night. We’re not big clubbers (anymore), but this band was of special interest- the leader of said band was also the lead guitarist in a legendary band from the sixties, “The Downtrodden Masses” (hey, stop laughing, it was the sixties!)
What made this band so legendary was the fact that I was the rhythm guitarist; that’s right rock fans, your humble host was a participant in the band that led the way in music development of the era.
What, you never heard of us? Well, maybe the memories are a bit distorted. Or maybe I lie like a rug. Whatever.
Here’s a pic of ¾ of the “DM” (bass player is AWOL):
That photo was taken at one of our college party gigs in 1968, at the rockin' age of 17 (I'm on the left, BTW)
Tomorrow I'll complete another turn around the Sun, & those days seem a tad distant now.
