  2. Those are both nice looking shooters. A question about the sight on the metal one, do you shoot like you are holding it in the pic or do you shoot with a horizontal hold?

    That' little bug looks great. I like the metal one too, very smart how you made the sight. Will you leave it like that or improve it? If yes, what do you have in mind? The last one looks already cool. Very nice work sir.

    Nice work on both! I also prefer the appearance of the bug because wood is a more warm material. The metal one looks like it will be a very accurate shooter!
