I absolutely love it.

Seriously though, and maybe this is a stupid question, but you can't *shoot* a gun like that, right? I mean, does anyone buy those and do anything other than put it in a safe or a display case? I'd love to own one, but dang, it would be really really hard not to take it out and shoot it a few times, no???

Eddie, if I owned one, I would shoot it! I don't want a gun I am afraid to shoot.

I'm like you Tim. I have 3 engraved guns and in the process of getting the forth and I shoot every one of them. I don't have any safe Queens. I like pretty guns, but I also like to shoot them. :)

Good point. I mean, it's a limited edition, yeah, but it's not like they only made one of them. Once you shoot six rounds through it you could relax and just have fun with it.

I'd shoot it/ If I had that kind of money and wanted to buy one, I'd make it two, one for the safe and one for the holster. I don't usually care much for engraved or BBQ guns but I like this one!

Guess my love for engraved guns go back to my childhood. Wasn't any around my part of the country and when I saw the first ones in Museums, I thought when I get where I can I'm going to have one. I loved the cap-guns with all the engraving, but when I was grown, I bought a Ruger Blackhawk in .30 cal Carbine, and fixed it up, Real Pearl Grips, and all. I now have two engraved P97's and in the process of getting a P90 engraved. Hope my Grandkids enjoy engraved guns like I do. I love to look at the artwork of engraving same as paintings and other forms of artwork. It amazes me at how talented some people are.

that would be one to have for sure, I think the Duke would want ya to shoot it. To me it would be like shooting with him, that would have been something to have had the chance of a life time to shoot with the Duke.

Traded if for a John Deere Tractor. Wish I had bought the tractor and kept the Blackhawk.
Yep I hear that. The tractor is probably long gone and the Blackhawk would still be going strong! But I must say that was one heck of a trade!
