Re: first deer

Congratulations! That young man looks plenty proud, and he should be. My little boy is in his 50s now. I remember when he was that age and his first deer.

Re: Engraved Flattop

Yes, these grips are attached with an adhesive!! An ivory dowel/rod was placed between both grips, epoxied on each end of the dowel/rod and clamped tightly until dry. Guaranteed never to loosen or slip. They have stayed in place since 1984. Of course, there is no adhesive on the grip frame.

Re: Engraved Flattop

Clark did not like to work on aluminum. This is actually a Colt grip frame. I assume they are epoxied?? They have never been off. Good question.

Re: Breast Plate Drill Grip Type

I'm pretty sure John Dougan has one. Check out his latest book. I can't remember if he has a picture of it in there.
