    This came from another thread but what a great perspective on how a Colt SAA (or any SAA IMO) should be engraved

    “Cozmo, all great looking guns and even better that you shoot them!”

    I’ll 2nd that. Cozmo, I’ve always appreciated your opinion that a gun, regardless of the name stamped on the barrel, should have to “earn” its engraving and embellishments. In the case of these USFA’s you’ve posted, it’s clear they distinguished themselves in terms of function long before you enhanced their form. Outstanding examples of US craftsmanship @ the highest levels all-around.

    Thanks...it was a hard earned lesson. Early on my soon to be wife and I bought a pair of 1st Gen guns that were engraved with ivory as an investment for resale. The price seemed like a deal. Back in the days of huge gun shows and money to be made if you were quick, knew what you were doing and had the cash. Close to 30 years ago now, and I can't remember how we got into them, part trade, part cash (likely she had cash, I had guns to trade). Anyway I knew very little (nothing really, when looking back) about the guns then and just a tiny bit more now only because I have bought a lot of good resource books. The more I read and began to understand the condition of what I had, the more I knew we'd take a bath on them. Nice engraving, beautiful ivory, and decent finish but on pitted guns that were engraved to "save" them for the uneducated. They were never someone's heirloom guns. Just a quick way then to make a fast buck off the unaware and uneducated like me. Six months later we sold them for $200 less than what we had into them. And I was thrilled to sell them at that price! I didn't buy an engraved gun again for 20 years. In the past 30 years I learned there are two things I have no business buying, some else's engraved gun project (better to have it done yourself on a gun of know quality) and Japanese swords of any make or time frame.

    Hopefully that is not a lesson on engraved guns that everyone has to learn the way I did.

    A gunsmith in Virginia Beach, VA (Robert F. Yurina) engraved several USFA Rodeos for Bill Dascher (deceased). I do not have pictures of them, but they may show up in the future.
    Danes engraved Rodeos are great looking guns that shoot to point-of-aim.
