I recieved this fine
pic this evening from a customer. Jay's stainless scope and rings
arrived to compliment his Victory 32 SS (stainless on stainless)
Having been on the
ledger for some time, and wanting to attend the Erwin Cup, Jay
opted to take advantage of the fact that I was preparing several
actions for the Cup Shoot. He saw his primary usage for hunting
(as a carbine) and so we made him the "C" class stock
shown in bright Mahogany.
For the Erwin Cup,
this action was in a laminated pistol stock and all the shooters
shared it in rotation.
Jay sent this copy
with the pic, and I appreciate it very much: Copied with his permission

I could go on and on.
However, I think you get the point:
The best things in
life are free (PRICELESS). Unfortunately, the rest you have to
pay for. ;) God bless you all.
Being able to draw
a living from making things folks enjoy, and meeting fine people,
such as Jay here, in the process ... PRICELESS
