I hesitated posting these, as guns in the last 10 years have been the center of controversy. These are a fine example of craftsmanship and machine work, but in a community of artists, it’s hard not to feel a shrinking back from exposure, lest my friends disapprove of my work, for the potential damage of their power.
I post them only as my photography warrants, and as pieces of fine metal work.
Thank you for coming to look at them. I will confess, as a teen, I was an avid shooter of targets. The one time, I killed an animal, it tore my heart out, as it was an innocent bird, who was singing its praises to its Creator. I can never get the image of that tiny fellow out of my mind, as it grasped the power line, tipping over and in the last gasp of life, dropped upside down to the ground, a victiim of a careless boy’s curiosity. God help me.
