I am a fourth generation oily and I like to reflect that in what I drive, how I dress, and now even in the weapon I carry. Black Gold is a theme I try to go with and Black Ostrich Skin Boots and accessories are sort of my trademark. I even have a black Ostrich skin steering wheel cover in my truck. This is my newest sidearm. Springfield Armory 1911-A1 Target model .45 in black stainless with custom German silver grips with gold plated scroll work. I plan on using this as my more formal carry gun. I have a micro-compact .45 for everyday carry but this will be my dressed up Sunday-go-to-meetin gun. I ordered the grips for it from a guy in San Antonio and the Black ostrich skin holster, belt, and mag carrier are from El Paso Saddlery. The grips don't come across as shiny in my pics as they really are. Haven't recieved the holster set yet. Not too sure about the target sight yet. May change it out for a low mount.
