    Looks great!

    I need to pick one of these up used, and restore it. I think there’s a thread on TGT about someone who did it just like you did

    Thanks fellas.

    I have a HUGE family and love all of them but I am closer with friends who I'd die for in a second. I'm glad you have that too. Trust me, it's a better feeling to become family with all walks of life, then to just have to learn to love the ones you were born to love. I love em all, but... you know how it is. Keep your brother together. God bless.

    You can pick your friends, but you can’t pick your family...

    You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friend's nose.

    Nice job on the Beretta.

    Nice Job. Prep is 99% of job like that. A great alternative is Brownells Alumnahyde once it cures it is pretty tough stuff.

    Looks great now and I kinda liked the patina it had. I don't mind holster wear but understand why someone would like to restore it.

    Nice job JC!

    Just by chance, have you ever installed a decocker kit on a 92? I just bought a somewhat beat up M9 on GB and I've been toying around having a gunsmith install a decocker on it when it arrives for transfer. Also going to have a complete re-spring kit install from Wolff. The whole "factory spec" spring kit is less than $20 plus shipping. I figure it might be best to start "fresh".

    You're thoughts on a decocker kit pls.
