    Here's my Tupperware. It is a Glock model 32 in .357 Sig. With rubber Hogue grip, it has been customized with stipeling to make it non-slick, grip reduction/change in angle of the grip (to more resemble a 1911 grip angle), the front of the trigger guard has been rounded to make it quicker to draw, and a beavertail has been added also (notice the rear grip, and the small beavertail added, again to make it more 1911 like), it has night sights and the extended 15 rd. mag is inserted.

    Do you have to take the grip off for the dishwasher, or will it dry under there eventually by itself.

    No Comment!



    Ok I couldn't resist!
    Kinda like putting a Mercedes hood ornament on a Volkswagon! :lol:

    Seriously,nice weapon E.L. Does it send lead down range? All that counts.

    Yes, you have to take the grip off before washing. It is always a good idea to disassemble your Tupperware before cleaning.

    Yes, it is no 1911. My TRS, now that is a 1911, and my daily gun. This is just a "drawer gun" that doesn't get much attention any more. It will send lead down range, and never fails to go "boom". But it's no 1911.

    I thought the box beneath it was appropriate...................

    That my friend is one beautiful counter top! I am envious. Don't care for the Glock mucking up the picture. Can you retake the photo of the counter top without the Glock? If you have to have a gun in the picture, put a 1911 or a Beretta in it next time!

    Just for you Sniper-66, here is a pic taken about a couple of weeks before we moved in.

    Remember, it was titled "A Confession..." I already had a pic of the 1911 on the granite countertops, and I got rid of my Beretta.

    I want the kitchen!!! And I don't even cook...

    Mom would kill for that kitchen (well she probably wouldn't care for the color of the cabinets - but she'd learn to live with them really quick).

    Beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

    And knowing that my mothers little kitchen cost her over $15,000 for her cabinets alone (admittedly top end cabinets), but she got her's at dealer cost and she didn't have to pay to have them installed. I can imagine what that whole kitchen had to of cost.

    Wow!!!

    Thanks. We love our new house. If it only set on about 200 acres instead of 2 it would be perfect.

    E.L., I can see why you love the house.

    Yeah 200 acres would be wonderful - but 2 acres is a lot better than having neighbors right next to you. Sigh.

    Oh well it's better than living in an apartment and I knew that I'd have to live this close to people because of my job working at the hospital. At least it's only 10 minutes to work (and that's with traffic). So very little gas money. Besides mom would never agree to live far away from the rest of the family (and I'm the only kid that's not married and agrees to keep an eye on her).

    Taking care of family is what is really important! Last year while we were finishing our old house in a different state, we were renting a modest 1300 sq. ft. house in town. At first that was fine, with just the three of us. Then my brother moved in while he was trying to get on his feet, then my step-dad and mom moved in for five months when he was in-between jobs, needless to say it got real crowded, especially when my wife was in the middle of her pregnancy. We got through it though, and were glad we could be there when our family needed us. Family is what is important. So I understand completely.

    I actually brought the wife in to read that post as we just moved into our new house also and she is used to guns laying all over her kitchen cabinets. We built ours with Liptus wood and stained it traditional cherry. Makes you feel good to live in a new house that you don't have to worry about what to fix next!!!

    I really understand what you are talking about. The last house we owned was beyond a fixer-upper. We bought it 11 years ago for about the same price as my last pickup. It was a repo, but I saw the potential in it. We spent more hours and money than I can count on transfixing that house. It is now a beautiful place, but for years we tore down walls, restudded, sheetocked, mudded, taped, floated, sanded, primed, and painted. We sheetrocked the entire 2,000 + sq. ft. that had paneling on the walls. The cabinets we spent months working on and turned out beautiful, almost as nice as the ones in our new house. When we bought the house they were painted a hideous white with green trim. We tore down rooms, and rebuilt others. Put in new carpet, twice. Put in new floors. Just a total remodel. Put up siding, new toilet, sink, shower, did plumbing, electrical, the whole nine yards. When I can find some before and after pics I will post them on this thread. Needless to say that house wore us out. We did come out ahead though, and learned a lot in the process as we did most of the work ourselves. For this house though, all I wanted to do was turn the key to the front door. IT was also a repo too, but a repo that was three years old and worth a lot. We have done some small things to it though. Installed the feaux wood blinds, put in cabinets in the garage, stuff like that, but nothing major.

    Yepper, I like working on this house now, just spent the afternoon out broadcast seeding the yard. I added a solar powered attic vent. The stuff that increases the value not just maintaining the value. Now if I could just get rid of the old house, I would be a happy man!

    Solar powered attic vent. Good thinking, I could use one of those.
