    Got the grips I ordered, and sanded them down to fit my bobtail. Not a perfect match, especially in color, but not bad either. Thanks for the idea of using my bench sander Colonel! Worked like a charm.

    Also, after my last range visit during which I fired from a rest for the first time ever with a pistol I've been contemplating buying or building one. Decided to give it a shot in the garage using some scraps from other projects.
    Because I didn't measure the exact height of the shooting bench or stool at the range but knowing that while using sitting in front of the shooting bench and using the two sandbags I had brought I still had to lean way down while sitting on their stool I knew I was going to need more height. So I made this one in such a way that I can use either the top of the box, or the end of it when standing it on end. To give me the option of using either of the two different heights I used pegs to be able to mount and remove it in either location, and also to allow me to take it apart and store the pieces and the bean bag inside for transport. Still have to figure out a handle for it.

    Try a little oil or wax on the sanded part. Should darken it up a bit and be a good match. Perfectly acceptable as is in my book.

    I actually just applied some Sharpie Poster Paint and it matched it very well. If it wears off I'll try the others.

    Took my new pistol rest and two Tisas Commanders to the range today. All from 7yds. Both guns performed flawlessly. The rest was almost a perfect height for the torso shots but a little too low for the head shots. I finished up the day with seven off-hand shots into a third target with 3 shots in the light blue "9" ring and 4 in the red "X" ring.
    The Bantam 9mm needs a little drift to the rear sight. I compensated for it in the head shots but didn't drift the sight at the range.

    Decided to try my hand at kydex forming this week. Got set up for it quite some time ago, but outside of a small sheath for a knife this was my first attempt. Lined it with some goat skin. Wore it while out and about yesterday and it turned out to be very comfortable, even lugging those 11 big bullets around.

    Dang man, that holster turned out nice! So when does DAO's custom holsters and grips, llc open? Grips look spot on too. I know some things look better in pics than real life, but your hired!

    That's a first class holster job right there. I'd melted a lot of kydex for knife sheaths, never as nice as that and never thought of even trying to do a pistol. Lining it with goat skin is fantastic, I use Garrett's leather lined holsters and they work super.
    Where did you get those screw grommets? I've got grommets that work like a rivet, like your so much better. Never seen them anyplace.
