The original rifle should be proof that there really needs to be an intelligence test for potential buyers of beautifully figured wood.

So that's how it works? IQ=talent? Interesting....
It is best to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth and remove any and all doubt....

Nope, but a higher IQ would more likely realize his inabilities, and find somebody with more knowledge, and talent.

BJ, you do really nice work.  About like making a silk purse from a sow's ear!

Among other shop snacks :) These will be the last pictures I publish until the gun is in the customers hands. I donít want to spoil the surprise for him when I deliver the gun.

Finally finished and hand delivered the gun to Wisconsin from central Pa. We sighted it in on Friday. I appreciate how lucky I am here at our quiet little muzzloading club. His club had covered ranges and was huge! About 100 plus shooting benches between 25 50 100 yards. And full. All modern shooters but us. The noise was incredible. I needed ear plugs and muffs to tolerate the muzzle blasts. Their opening day of deer season was Saturday.
