    Sup, gang.... built this new one to start practicing for ECST. So far it might be what I'm competing with. Looking forward to seeing you all again.

    Very sculptural approach to a shooter!
    Do you have a picture of a hand holding it the shooting position?

    Hey man! Looks great. You did great last year at ECST. If I remember correctly you were kind of a newby then right? I'm sure you'll do even better this year. Good luck!

    Thank you. Yes, I'd started shooting that January, but I fell for it immediately. 9th place last year w a 103. Hoping to break 115.

    The idea for this design was to occupy all the empty space btw my hand and the shooter to illuminate any wiggle room. The cavity is something I did aesthetically, as a signature, but also to reduce the weight of the cherry which is a pretty dense, heavy wood.

    Thanks for the new photo and extra exposition.
    That baby is a handful, and I'm sure a very pleasant secure one a that.
    I bet she shoots as good as she looks.
    Good luck at ECST!

    Dude you have a style of your own and it is outstanding. I haven't seen your work for a little while and I must admit I missed it. This shooter does not disappoint.
    Absolutely gorgeous :tu::tu:
