    Looks Great ! Very authentic looking ! How did you do all that lashing to hold the prod ? That looks impossible to me to beable to be very tight.

    Ferdi, thanks for the kind words. As far as shooting, I have not been able to try it out just yet. I will probably test it out in the next day or so. Wife doesn't like me shoot in the back yard.

    Chaz, thanks also for the kind words. About the prod binding, if you will go to the search area on the forum, type in prod binding, there is a great tutorial on how to bind the prod. It's pretty simple, and works great!

    Thanks Thornwarbler, I am pleased with the out come. But always room for improvements.

    Gnome- I haven't had time test shoot it yet. Wife doesn't like me to shoot in the back yard. Probably in a day or so I'll give her a test.( when wife isn't home). As far as the prod, it is #110.

    Thanks again guys for the kind words.

    And I missed this? scratch I must be sleeping on my feet lately.

    Congrats on another well done, definitely show us some groups you get with that boy.

    And wow, is that the fog in your parts? cyclops Even if it's the camera, I like it...I usualy wake up at 4-5 am to get shots like that. Smile
