Winter time always feels like it just won’t get over soon enough. Big thank you to Jake (DSIL) for initiating and getting a winter activity to help us pass the blues of cold weather. After all the names were in the hat, Darrell and I were the lucky pair and a coincidence that we had just finished a trade between ourselves about a week before. So this just meant that we had to each try to top what we had just done. For me, that was a real struggle as it pushed me out of my comfort zone a little as I tried to come up with something new. On the other end, Darrell is rock solid with his amazing Naturals and never short of new innovative ideas on what to do with a stick.
I am still enjoying all the natural frames that I had just received on the last trade and now, I’ve got to put them down for a spell and pick up these beauties. My biggest problem isn’t shooting, but what to shoot! Darrell, you don’t make it easy and if I get in trouble for spending too much time with my Slingshot toys, it is all your fault!
Just take a look at all this that Darrell sent! Not only did he make me 3 fabulous frames, he knew exactly what building materials to add. Aluminum plates, bamboo wood samples, and copper nails that all will get used sooner than later. Also added an ammo magnet that says it can pick up 35 lbs of ammo! And a coveted multi tool from B&D Industries.
Awesome Darrell and extremely greatly appreciated!
Pure Darrell Goodness here!
Finger relief grips are prefect!
No turquoise was spared on this sweet frame. The butt end is amazing. Rough cut and looks like Bulldog Darrel gnawed it off with his teeth! Gonna be my goto light ammo shooter.
This white wood is amazing. Looks and feels like Ivory. Absolutely amazing and a prefect grip.
The maker's mark and lanyard holes are always unique!
This is a very rare natural from "Layered Birch Tree". Often mistaken as plywood, but the growth rings are always symmetrical and adds great strength to the tree when it grows. I am really blessed to get one of these rare builds from Darrell. With the scalloped fork tips, I'm going to give tubes a try on this frame.
Anxious to see what these look like when I cut into them. Palm swells on my next build!
Says it is guaranteed to lift 35 lbs of ammo! This is a sweet little magnet that will make a great ammo holder.
Also got two of the amazing multi driver tools. Perfect for detailed work and will get plenty of use in my other hobbies.
Thanks again Darrell, amazing trade and looking forward to doing this again.
