    Well I wanted to display a little eye candy for a skeet shooter in Indiana. The gun is a DT-10 and it featurers our Delrin add-on rib to allow the shooter to have his head up to see around the gun better. The wood is a California Feather Claro Walnut blank. I hope that the customer is pleased with his choice and good luck to him and shoot it well. The gun will arrive to him on Tuesday this coming week. So a little sneak preview. As always thank you for taking a look.

    Dennis, Cindy & the Crew

    Dennis I used to know a song about Skeeter's but I won't sang it here ok it was really about them other kind of insect misquotes.

    Anyway im sure the Skeeter will be happy with the wood and rib you done.

    Nice Job.

    Dennis,

    That's the most extreme pitch I've ever seen on a shotgun.

    I'm curious how that fitting was accomplished to arrive at such a radical pattern. Seems you would have had to spend a lot of time on the skeet field with the fella. Was that part of the process?

    Beautiful wood amd woodwork, BTW.

    To Mike,

    Yes we spent a ton of time on the field and after, the gun was taken home by the owner and he shot the pattern stock all summer before returning it to me in the late fall. The pitch was done to fit his body and to me that is what custom fitting is all about. It is not what I like or a certain look but our main concern here is for the improvement of the shooter. And yes this was done as part of our process that we do with every fitting that is done. Remember when a shooters head comes up and they stand more erect the pitch has to change and the LOP has to get shorter to fit the more erect position. Thank you for the comment.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. You're the only one who should be allowed to use the phrase "eye candy" in the heading! You always deliver, that is a beauty.
