**SEE POST #50,..........THE CORRECT NUMBER HAD BEEN PICKED**

So here's the dealio.........

I ordered a set of Larry Davidson's Horned Lizard grips for my Springer EMP.
There was a mix up & the specs of the grips got mixed up a bit.
Larry asked me to "pass them along to a friend" he does not want me to return them.

Gray/black Horned Lizards, standard 1911 thickness, beveled bottoms, MSH pin cut-out & ambi-safety cut.

Here's what I'm thinking..........pick a number, 0-500, first person to pick the number,
or closest by noon on 25 March wins.

BTW: I ordered a set of Warthog's for my EMP and Larry sent me Horned Lizards. I didn't bother returning them or letting him know as either will do, and I honestly didn't know which ones I would have liked more. :rofl:

Larry is TOP NOTCH. I had a set of his my grips on Kimber PC2 and they are, IMHO, the best G10 grips available. His craftsmanship is only exceeded by his customer service. He is a hell of a nice guy and takes care of his customers.

Kudos to Greg (and Larry) for spreading the karma. We need more of this kind of stuff. :thumbsup:

Now to totally derail this thread. I was reading this on my iPhone when I got a call to go to motel 6 for a drunk woman reporting her car stolen (so I didn't get to read the whole thing). I show up at motel 6 and this white trash woman in her late 50s and no teeth wearing a long flannel shirt with nothing else tells me she wants to report her ex-husband/ fiancÚ missing. He was suppose to pick up another couple to return with and have a "swingers party" but he did not return. Turns out she was just mad because she thought he was fooling around with out her. I would have rather stared at Quack's pics for hours on end.
