I convinced my wife that we need a security camera to watch the front while we are away or asleep. Little did she know, the real reason was to keep an eye out for the postman to know when slingmail arrives! Caught this FedEx guy on camera. Wonder what's in the package?!!! Awhile back, I was talking with Arturo about PFS shooting and one thing led to another and I'm now an extremely gracious owner of his Samurai Conus design built by him. This conus frame is made from South American Ulmo wood that grows in Chile and Argentina. It is a very hard dense wood and a lovely dark color grain. As builds go sometimes, things were not as originally planned by Arturo. So after working through the challenges that natural wood can present, the Samuria Conus finally emerged. I am extremely grateful for his willingness and determination over the past few weeks. The state of the world didn't help either and presented its own share of challenges with long distance shipping. The combination of material supplies, time available to build, and the high cost of shipping truly makes this a one off exchange. When I opened the box, I could not believe how beautiful the Samurai Conus is. The color is amazing. The feel of the smooth waxed hardwood is beyond belief. The straight lines and edges are perfect! Unbelievable how well it is made!!! I immediately cut some SimpleShot black .7 bands and tied on a Supersure Roo pouch. Wrapped the bands on the Conus and headed to the backyard shooting range. I'm still much a learner in PFS butterfly, so it took me a dozen or so shots to get the feel of the new frame, and adjust my floating anchor point. But once it was set, I was able to cut out the target center from 10m. Of course, this isn't the target of choice for a Conus! So out came the drink can! Made the quick video, and continued with the inaugural can cut! Still, not enough for an Arturo Conus. You have to finish with punching out the can top! I will be forever grateful for this frame and you will see me shooting it every chance I can. This isn't a display board queen. This Samurai is as tough as Arturo himself, and will see many shots over the days and years to come!
