    Hey guys:

    I thought I'd share some work I just had done in creating my USMC Stainless BT-100. This gun will not be shot, but rather carried around with me to show people.

    I wanted to wait to show everyone once it was complete, but everyone who has seen the stock and forend said I should post it here now, so have a look at let me know your thoughts.

    Thanx for looking....

    I should mention that I did not do the painting on it. It was done by Chuck Parker in Oceanside, Ca. As you can see he is an amazing artist but also a very nice guy and easy to work with. I think I changed the design on this thing four times before he actually started.

    What would he charge to do that on a BT 99 Max. Yes it is a Jap gun but they know what a Marine can do.

    Larry,

    Gunnery Sgt., that is one fancy looking paint job! I really like it. If you can still shoot the BT-100 like the pro that you are [and do not want to rely on another trap gun], I recommend that you shoot your USMC edition instead of keeping it as a show piece. More people will see the shotgun if you use it instead of keeping it in a case in the car and show it only to a few people who happen to pass you by in the parking lot.

    I wish you the best of luck in the upcoming DGSC election. You will make a fine president. Continue the great work of Dean, and other past presidents (including Mdme. President Karen), in making Downers Grove the premier shooting venue in northern Illinois. Also, I wish you the best of luck in the current ATA season.

    I really miss shooting those marathon Saturday morning shoots involving a flat or more of ammo on [the then] Trap Field #1 at DGSC. The shooting was fun and so were the fellow shooters (e.g., Jim Miller, Joe Nemedi, Bobby Stubblefield, Dan Biank, Steve Mohr, Harvey Shell, and others who joined us throughout the day). But then, I also miss: shooting skeet on Sundays with Ed Shannon, Steve Mohr, Frank DeGrazia, Chip VanderVeen, Ed Steinhoff, Jim Olin, and others; and shooting skeet or trap on Tuesdays and Thursdays with the morning crews, including Karen's dad, Donnie Hiltz, Ed Griner, Gene Rogoz, Herman, and countless other shooters.

    Merry Christmas to all at Downers Grove Sportsmen's Club.

    Larry B.

    Master Sergent? Did I miss something? The chevron painted on the forearm is for a Gunnery Sergent ...

    BTW ... fantastic work and you should proudly shoot that gun as a proud Marine that you are. Don't let it sit in a case to be shown to only a few people but let it be seen in all its glory on the trap line spittin lead from the end of its barrel as only a Marine can make it do!

    I told you this was the coolest stock I'd seen. Now that I take another look, I agree with the folks who say you're going to have to shoot it and might want to wear gloves so you don't wear out the finish.
