    It is made from a 1 inch metal pipe. All I did was cut it, and flatten the end, then cut down the flat and bent the forks apart with a large screw driver. It will never perish at a fork hit, and it is very comfortable to shoot. I really do not like the ott tubes though. They just seem to be inconsistent. I thinck I am going to stick to flats for the rest of my shooting.

    This could very easily be modified into a survival kit as well with that hollow space in the grip. Space for things like matches, foil, first aid, bacon strips, etc.

    I like the idea, maybe I'll do it too.

    The fork has small gaps, but the could be filled, and of coarse an end cap could be placed on the bottom if you were to cut it straight. But it is small. Not much would fit in the Handel, maybe some fishing stuff, a couple matches, but that would be it.

    Nice work and a great way to use the materials at hand! I really like the 'survival kit' idea too. A bit of silicon in the openings of the fork tips, and you are good to go!

    Love the bare bones, 'use what you have' approach. Very cool!

    Survival kit? Heck, I was thinking 'ammo storage' the moment I saw it. Cap the bottom, drill a small dispenser hole near the top and you could be shooting for a while before you have to reload. Nice idea. I may have some EMT sitting around somewhere I could try this with. Thanks for the inspiration.

    That would be cool to. Deffinetely do try it. But if you want a larger fork gap you may need to heat it with a propane torch, or map gass.
