    The Lord Ridley Trophy

    This is a 6 inch wedge circle of optical crystal recently commissioned by the North East Branch of The British Deer Society ,that I hand engraved.
    The piece is to be used as a memorial trophy

    That looks brilliant David. Is the engraving on the reverse side?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The engraving is just on one side for this one but I did another one which was 3D with engraving both sides shown below, the roe was engraved very deeply on that one into the back of the piece with work on front and back with the tree and grasses.
