    Xmas Roaring horns

    Not sure if I should post this here.
    Just thought some might interested in my latest roaring horns.




    Blur at the bottom of this one is digital blurring to cover some writing.

    Made from Texas longhorns.
    What'd ya reckon?
    Raging Bull, 199p and greghud like this.

    Stunning. Is that your own work?
    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

    Yeah mate, I've been selling mounted horns for while and thought it was time to make some roaring horns. I think they've come out well.

    Here's the sling mounting. Thought this'd look better than a brass washer.

    It's etched and inked. The vine one has black in over the white horn with white ink of the black.

    99 for a basic polished horn. Tooling extra depending on what is wanted. This stag was the head from Aunty's stag this year.

    i had to use a photo from his Chris's roar story.
