Did you modify the front of the trigger guard or did it come sculpted like that? Absolutely awesome rifle!

If'n his bows are as artful as his BP offerings, he's got some amazing talent! 

I'm somewhat awestruck...

The Big Lisa shoot for the first time!

Three shot group at 30 yards. First two shots I pulled to the right then these next three settled right in there with the last two in the same hole. Now to back out to 65yards.

This is shooting a .575 conical hollow base pure lead weighing 500 grains. It will more than likely be a bout 5 inches low at 65 and that's where I will most likely zero it in at 50-60. Im a happy camper
