Congrats Buckshot, on the gift. Very sorry that uncle passed away. Those pistols are very popular today and have pretty good value. BB has a cool suggestion on the engraving. Prior to my dad passing he had my brother and I over to his house and had us each draw a card, the highest card got to pick first, Me! As we went through the guns I got to my brother's favorite a model 94 Win in 30-30, knowing this I passed on it and chose another. I now have that one along with other's picked that day. I guess it's fitting and with great pride that families pass down their firearms. I'll follow that tradition too! Your uncle thought pretty high of you! It just sucks to loose family members, I can't stand it, just know it has to happen though.
