      MISTER Davis !

      Talk about coincidink.

      You wouldn't know me. I just registered here moments ago to try to get info on a Fred Schmidt gun I had Fred build for me for the Steel Challenge in 1986. Part PPC, part combat revolver with his short cylinder.

      But, I have two other L-Frames that Kerry Freeman did fine action jobs on during the same period. I was a friend of Bud Watson of Watson Precision Reloading in the San Gabriel Valley - a new member then of the Wart Hogs, their old club that originally included some of the leather slap guys from the 1950s.

      I still have the two L-Frames. Simply had the muzzles crowned and the barrel forcing cones opened up, with a Davis - Freeman action job. That's all I needed then to compete practically anywhere.

      The first one got pretty rickety. In my own jargon and notes, it's always called the 'Original L'. The second one is my best revolver (competing in some ways with Fred Schmidt's) and has always been called, the "Davis L". It's the last L-Frame I'll ever give up.

      And here you be. Cool.
