Hi. I'm Bill DeShivs. Knifemaker/designer/restorer, engraver, plater, former gunsmith, and Star nut.
I own 2 DKs, 2 PDs, a BM, a BKM, An A, and an HK (Lancer).
I look forward to the discussions here.

Welcome Bill, you have an impressive Star collection. When you have time I would love to see some pictures, particularily those DKs.

Okay, I'm Will.

A consulting shrink by profession and pilot by avocation (hence, psyfly).

Gun nut and Star addict.

I have a DK, a BKM, 2 BMs (I guess that sounds healthy), and a PD.

Although I have others, 3 of the above are my most frequent "carries".

One of the BMs is on "loan" to my daughter-in-law.

Look fwd to learning from all of you.

I won't say "welcome" as I'm a newbie, myself.

Will

Spanish steel is addictive! I have a Llama/Ruby brochure from the 50's that says LA VERDADERA PISTOLA PARA UN HOMBRE.....the real pistol for a man. Pretty much sums up how I feel about Spanish guns.

Most of mine have been customized to one degree or another. I'll try to take some more pics soon.
Here is my Lancer. It was in poor cosmetic shape when I got it.
The little gun is an Astra Cub in .22 short that I engraved and plated in 24k gold.

These are my two favorites:

Its a 47 "M" Super. I have about 13 K through this one. For carry when I feel like a "big" gun.

This one:


An 83 "BM" is my daily 'small" pistol. It has around 32K since I picked it up.

Mine has had the frame significantly re contoured and some work done on teh extractor to let it handle 38 Super a bit better.
The bottom rear of the slide has been welded up and recontoured to delay opening just a tad. I'm using it as a testbed for some 38Super/9mmLargo/9x23 loading and operating tests.
My current carry laod with this one is a 135 SWCHP at a bit over 1300fps.

Bill, Not one S series in the bunch? I have been looking for a nice HK and missed a couple on GB or they were unrealistically priced.
