    I scored a peice of spalted apple tree today. My boss is saving the tree to BBQ with but I helped myself to some. I'm stoked about this one. I finished it with CA glue and got a nice shine out of it

    Amazing flare. Nice profile. I bet that feels good in the hand.

    Thanks! It feels good in the hand and shoots pretty darn good. I had a few issues earlier but it was mostly due to pouch experimentation. I made it too small and kept getting some wild flyers. Went back to the size I had been using and started hitting the can again. By the way, I like "Lucky" and glad it didn't get chewed up!

    Very nice PFS. CA glue finish is what i like, quickly done, strong, nice but very tricky to apply.
    Good job man!

    Thanks! I really like how this one turned out. I like he CA glue as well. I tend to be impatient when it come to the finish drying so the CA is a nice solution for me. It takes no time at all. And it give a nice gloss finish. The trick is thin coats. I wear blue nitrile gloves and just smear it on. I think I put about five coats. I followed the flippinout video except I wear full gloves. The gloves don't stick but skin does!
