I wanted to show this off, it's a 1948 or 49 bearcat revolver I inherited. Thing is amazing and deadly accurate, finest gun I've ever fired. I need to find a gunsmith to do a few small repairs however, just from age. They still make this gun today, almost exactly the same, so the design has held up.
The handle is made from elk bone, my great uncle replaced the wood grip with polished bone. I'll post a couple of pictures from different angles. I figured you all might be interested since the handle was crafted by a relative and could be argued to be art.
Also the pink vase in the background of one of these photos, it was made by my grandmother who passed nearly 20 years ago.
