    Yesterday I was completely blown away by a gift from @Mr Muz .
    I did not ask him to make this nor did I trade with him. This was a gift from out of the blue and I can honestly say it is the my favourite looking slingshot gift I have ever received. The oak burl is magnificent, the micarta, aluminium and G10 core is subtle and elegant. The workmanship and finish are completely off the chart. This shooter is a work of art that has had a lot of time and effort put into it and although I have a fairly large vocabulary I am almost lost for words.
    Thank you Phill. You have out done yourself with this shooter and I am extremely grateful for your kindness not only for the shooter that you have obviously put a lot of time and effort into, but also for the magnetic ammo holder and this cool little target.

    OK enough talk. I'll let the pictures show you why I'm so blown away :tu:

    Here's me droning on about the slingshot. Glad you like it Clint. I don't want to let the cat out of the bag but I showed Clint a core I purchased in January to get his thoughts on how to scale it and he said "send it to me". He didn't want anything for him doing it so I thought I'd make him this. I really enjoy being on this forum because of guys like @BarkyBow and the generosity and wisdom that the rest of you (including @honorary pie) share and getting to know you all has been a pleasure. Long may it continue.

    Thanks Dan, you have started a burl revaluation
    Thank you pal it's about time Clint got back as good as he gives.
    Thanks buddy, yeah burr is a bitch to router that's why I used the g10, I appoxyied it to the burr before routering to help strengthen it so little chunks didn't fly off, I've been there before.

    Thank you Terry, praise means a lot coming from the likes of yourself and other skilled fabricators.

    Those of you that know me know I'm very modest and I feel very humbled and I'm honored by all complements, it's not what I do it for but they make it even more worth while.
