    I didnít win anything from them today. Sure wouldnít have minded a couple of the Walther PPKs they had!

  15. Bowhunter Scene on Hard Rubber Buttplate: Artemis?

    Hi all,

    Just picked this up from eBay for, I think, a really great price.

    Has anyone seen one before? Did some maker use these or is it a custom thing?

    I donít have any basis for this but I feel like Skip Shafer may be the photographer for the modeling agency.
