My L.S.T. Gaboon

well after several long weeks, my buddy Dustin Bonar (formerly from Novaks) and
current owner of L.S.T. finished up my Gaboon 45. I snapped a few pics but have
not been able to shoot it yet. A Range report will be in the near future. I also
had Dustin matte the front strap on my Kimber Pro Carry SLE and replace the extractor.
Dustins late father Joe Bonar did a reliability package and a few tweaks to this Kimber
many years ago. The Gaboon features an STI Slide and a Caspian/Foster Frame.

Good lookin' weapon. Just a question---is there some reason why the stippling on the front strap and bottom of the trigger guard does NOT extend up the FRONT of the trigger guard ? ? IMHO if it's gonna be on the trigger guard, the front is where it would do the most good.........

It was done purely for cosmetics. I wanted the front strap matted and this seemed like a good way to end the matte job. It was my decision.

Super nice. I like the Kimber too, even.(Not a fan of them as a rule).

I dig the stippling. I Like that it stops on the bottom. I don't put a finger out front though, so it wouldn't do me any good to have it out there,
