Re: 5 Years In The Making....

NICE work, Joel. Your friend would be justifiably happy with it.

I like Broz's idea...

"Filly"

Re: 5 Years In The Making....

"The Companion" and "Filly" are both brilliant names. It'll be one of those for sure.
Need an opinion... Tempted to fire up the laser engraver and do some engraving... Would you engrave the name on the stock, barreled action, bottom metal?? Don't want it to be tacky..

Pulled the bottom metal and drew on it...yeah or nay? I'll use a classic style font, and space it evenly...

Re: 5 Years In The Making....

I'd have to vote for the bottom metal. I've always liked engraving there & haven't thought it tacky. It's big enough to be see yet placed where it doesn't scream for attention.

Joel, I'd go for the bottom metal. That would look great.

Another vote for bottom metal. As a side note when Jeff suggested name it brought a tear to my eye thinking of my best friend and hunting companion, and he is still around to bust my balls. Can we say that

Bottom Metal would be my preference but the choice is yours Joel.
