    Howard, Char, Matt and Foster will be attending. Thanks for all your help.

    They will already be in Vegas for the Shot Show and will stay over to attend their first FEGA Show (Firearms Engravers Guild of America).

    www.fega.com
    and be prepared to be amazed

    Since Bud ask, I thought I'd put up some engraving work Howard did for me on my TMX. Awesome work!
    By the way, Howard is also pretty darn good at checkering too. He did the checkering work below.

    I have been to the FEGA show before, while in Vegas for the Shot Show. It is well worth going to see. Beautiful works of art.

    Need to thank Howard Simon as he got my son Matt and my wife Char going on engraving this past Summer.

    Howard is a very talented engraver and went out of his way to help them get started. Hap was very instrumental as well. Guys, we appreciate all of your help !!! These guys have been such a great inspiration to the Bartholow family. THANK YOU.

    Matt did a couple key chains for his initial work and moved right onto a knife today. Here it is. Many thanks to the trapshooting family.

    Keep in mind many of the engravers are doing their work at the show. It is awesome to see it being done right before your eyes.

    Howard Simon did both the 90-T and Model 12 in the photo's for me. Not only is Howard a "dandy" engraver he is also a great guy whose friendship I treasure.
