I just felt like popping a few rounds off of the deck. Sooooo, I did. I have never blasted and parked this gun. I made the tripod from scratch a year or two ago. I got a deal on a .50 T&E, so I slid a piece of 3/4 EMT over the original traverse bar. The .50 T&E works on that pretty good. One of these days....I'll blast and park it, and I'll probably turn a 1" traverse bar for this T&E. Until then....no shame...I still shoot it. Don't know why I felt the need to post a pic and share that, but here it is!
