I'm new here but been a member of several other forums for years. Everybody has their own definition of a "BBQ Gun" but the one that I've seem most widely used is: " A revolver, 40 caliber or larger (at least big enough to shoot the entrée with), usually made by Colt or S & W, with exotic natural materials used for the grips. Originally worn by Texas and SW lawmen to Sunday BBQs. Leather rigs should be carved or tooled, exotic skins. Extra points if Boots, hat band, belt and holster all match.

Exceptions include: (1) High quality autoloaders, especially if engraved or plated. (2) Any gun taken from someone trying to kill you. (3) 357s (Pythons, j-frame hideouts)
(4) Anything by Wolf and Klar.

Under that definition, here are my humble submissions:

First up: A (circa) 1907 41 Long Colt, Colt Bisley from the Rez in Arizona. Originally sent to Mexico City, where it was gold plated and had ivory grips installed. Grips are hand carved with ruby eyes on the steer. It was later sent to (captured by?) the Apaches who engraved Indian motifs, including a jaguar, a stagecoach chase and Aztec masks. Leather is by El Paso Saddlery and is a Tom Threepersons rig. I did the back-dying myself.


Same rig, "in the field":


A Colt SAA, nickel plated with real pearl grips. Also in 41 Long Colt caliber and also from the 1907 time period. Holster by El paso.


Now, for something a little bit different: My Colt Python (more of a Sunday-go-to-meeting gun). Holster is by El Paso and grips by Patrick Grashorn. One of the Pythons and the Anaconda have been traded off:


This last one is not a BBQ gun but is still pristine. It is my "working gun" for when I am in the woods here in the NW. (I cannot carry while on duty but if I am off-duty, I will usually be carrying). This rides in a "Duke Rig" by EPS. Work by Gary Reeder.

Three weeks ago I lived less than 15 minutes away from Doug Turnbull. He makes some impressive stuff! I love the case hardening. Of course, the price tag always makes me a bit nauseous

...now I live 12 hours away. Ha!

I usually pack my nickel 19 for Bbq

Or my Stainless DSII

But I think for a wedding in a suit this might be appropriate

Well, I gone and done it. Ordered myself a wedding gun that will also be a BBQ gun.

Should have it next week, and if it's as beautiful as the pictures portray it, I'll be a happy man.

Now to find the correct leather for it.....hehehe....

Here's a couple for starters.




The blued 1911 is a Series 70 Colt Gold Cup 45 ACP LNIB. I do have the original grips for it. It hasn't been fired for at least 30 years or so. I fired it a few times right after I bought it. It is a good shooting gun.

Congrats!

And for your NEXT BBQ gun, perhaps something like this:



Its a Single Six .32 H&R Magnum - my Vaquerito project.

Barrel shortened to a quasi sheriffs model length of 3.5" (can still use the ejector rod.)
Action work and a real nice trigger job.
A better (my opinion) front sight.
Factory bluing and faux "color case hardening" polished off.
"Warning" on the barrel was also re-indexed to a better, less unsightly position.
Engraved by Mark Hykes in Sparks, Nevada.
Blued by Hot Flash. Screws/pins nitre blued (but they don't show up real well.)
Sides of hammer and trigger jeweled.
Holster is a Mernickle PS6SA.

10 rds over the Chrony (Hornady 85 gr XTP, 12 gr of Li'l Gun) averaged about 1200 fps.

Its my BBQ gun. But also actually carry and shoot it; a very nice shooter. I'll NOT let it be a safe queen; am gonna enjoy it and shoot it!
