I was headed out to shoot the new Cowboy gun the other day and someone pulled out in front of me. I had to swerve really hard to avoid a collision. The 45-70 slid all the way to the edge of the seat and dropped down on the center console pretty hard. No damage done, but I guess I got a little protective.

I don’t get the opportunity to make many of the floral designs, so my Cowboy is going to wear flowers and tassels.

I really didn't plan on making a fringed scabbard, but it just kind of happened that way.
Maybe now I can make it the six or so miles out to the property without beating it to death, although it sure seems to want to do its part in beating me to death.

This is the only gun I've ever had that is as much fun to miss with as it is to nail the bullseye.

Awesome as usual Terry!
Are you getting more used to the filigree style of work? You seemed to knock this one out quicker then it sounded like the first one took.

You might as well join the Eagle club, like I tell everyone they look even better in person then in the pictures!

I discovered a better way to make the cutouts without having to spend so much time cleaning up frazzles, but it still took about 10 hours or so. I think it's like everything else in life...We only get better at what we practice, and I was doing another filigree project at the same time.

Indeed they do, once I finish restocking my 444P, I'm going to post up pics of both it and the 336D wearing their leathers together!
Big guide and little guide side by side!

Click speaks the truth on the eagle cuff, it is a site to behold, stunning is a word that comes to mind. terry you are quite a craftsman and artist. Nice job on the scabbard. fringed or not it is sure Purdy!

a9mmfan, very awesome work, as I have come to expect from you. I hope my wife never sees the eagle buttcuff, if she does I'm in trouble, she will want one and she doesn't have a Marlin! She has always liked any kind of artwork or photos of eagles and that buttcuff would really get her attention. Seriously, if you ever consider making a square piece with an eagle on it let me know by PM and cost because I sure would like one for my wife and I could, for once surprise her. Take care, John.
