  1. I usually have a couple bottles of the Old Rip Van Winkle and the 12yr open in the under bar cabinets. Same with most of the antique collection and other harder to get bottles. Unopened bottles and hidden bottles keep people from asking for a taste, especially if I don’t know them well or I know they won’t appreciate it. Ive done 5 distillery barrel pics so those seem to be my go to’s for daily drinking.
  2. Alright, I’ll jump into this thread. My 2 hobbies are guns and booze. I don’t drink like I used to but I still keep a couple bottles in the collection.
  3. I use a SVI grip with the Tactical texture and I’m very happy with it.
  4. I’m not a fan of 3 dot sights or fiber optic rears. It’s too confusing of a sight picture and will slow you down. Either stick with what you have s d adapt or go with a narrower front fight.
  5. I generally use DPP’s and RMR’s on my long gun’s. I recently picked up a couple Vortex Venoms for cheaper projects. Really any red dot works. You don’t need a big window if you shoot with both eyes open and have a good natural point of aim. The dot just comes into view while your aiming just like the front sight should.
  6. The DVC-P does not have the top slide milling or the side ports on the comp like the Omni but it does have the DUO optics mounting system.
  7. The wife and I travel a lot. Covered 5 continents so far. We love experiencing other cultures. As much as I love traveling the world, my favorite thing about it is coming home.
  8. I have a NIB DVC Steel blackout if that interests you.
  9. I’m the wrong guy to answer this. I’m 0 for 4 on gunsmiths lately with a build with another smith that hasn’t been delivered with an original completion date of May. Whomever you use, good luck.
  10. And yes it should accept an aftermarket mag release. All small parts are 1911 compatible.
  11. The ones with the bead blasted barrels are the first release guns with a cerakote finish. You have a newer version that has a DLC finish. That would cost almost $400 if you were to source it out in the aftermarket. I have quite a few guns in DLC and it’s an awesome finish. I’m sure you’ll be happy with yours.
  12. Beautiful guns. Congratulations and good work.
  13. I have all the finishes listed. My favorite by far is the PVD coating DLC. It’s super hard and wear resistant, it provides a very good amount of wear resistance and it is a “slick” finish. It has a low coefficient of friction and is a slightly porous finish that holds oil.
  14. Even though I’m a big fan of STI’s guns, I would go the custom route. Especially since he is local, you can easily take it in for anything that goes wrong.
  15. When STI released the Gen2 mags they had a follower issue, you may have an early mag. STI’s warranty dept it great, give them a call, they will diagnose and fix whatever problem it is
