Still working on those LI Black duck blocks. I've finished the heads, except for some final sanding, and I have the pattern drawn in AutoCAD, so I can reproduce it as often as I need. The problem I'm having is getting white cedar stock! I can get some pretty clear red cedar, but the grain is pretty open on that stuff, and it takes a good bit of oil based paint ot seal properly. Not only haven't I been able to find any on the Island, I can't seem to find any on the internet! The guy at the lumber yard looked at me like I had four heads!
I feel slightly sorry for a man who has never patterned his gun, who has no idea how far his chosen load will retain killing penetration. But I'm extremely sorry for the ducks he shoots at beyond the killing range of his gun and load - Bob Brister
