Default Re: R U a Cowboy Action Shooter?

Two Ponies

It's good to have another SASS shooter on the forum. I see you are a model 90 collector. Those are great guns for engraving. Over the years I have done several as well as model 61's.

Learning to engrave guns is a long and challenging process but you have come to the right place to learn. Steve's tools will be a great asset to you and help to shorten the learning curve as far as the engraving part goes but cutting metal is only half the story. Learning to design scroll and scenes is the other half.

There are lots of people here to help. Click on the link below my signature line to go to the glossary and you will learn the terms, tools and styles of ornamentation we use in the trade.

Best wishes,

Buck Rio
