    Poor man

    Here's a K80 I shoot sporting clays with, the wood was purchased at the GRAND from Wenigs bargin trailer, I purchased 30 sets of K80 wood from Fred. I just completed this set for myself and it is left handed. Let me know what you think, Ronnie

    Your checkering art makes it look like a RICH man's K80 - very nice work.

    Like the wood very much ...... and think the checkering and carving is the best I've ever seen. Love the "feather" effect. Who ever did it is not just a craftsman but an artist.

    Just terrible! You need to send it to me so I can wear the ugly off it. Probably take a few years.

    Joking aside, you did well.

    Wrap around checkering, with carving. Very nice, and clean! I take it this is not just a hobby of yours? I know I have seen pictures before of mounts in the background. So which is your main income provider? Or, do you do both for income?

    Either way, with talent like that, I am not thinking poor, whether emotionally or monitarily. LOL

    One ugly ass piece of work, Ronnie. Had the pleasure of holding in my grubby little hands yesterday. Trade you for a Bill Cole with a beat up Tigermaple stock. You may have to throw in some cash, though.....

    Great to meet you. Stay off the threads and get to work!
