What do you think? I have been designing jewelry lately and was thinking there has to be something I can do with used and new bullet components. Here is my first attempt. I wrapped a Winchester case with 14K gold-filled wire and hung semi-precious stone drops from bottom. All chain is also 14K. It looks… Read more »

I flew home Friday and Charles picked me up and we drove directly to Richland in eastern Wa for a match he wanted to shoot.

Today was my first day at the Ben Avery Range here in Phoenix. I swore we must have taken a wrong turn somewhere and ended up at Rattlesnake Ridge by accident. The winds were howling! No one told me it was like this!! I don’t have my elevation sites yet for 8, 9 and 1000… Read more »
