Brass tacks

Post by JKosprey » Tue Feb 13, 2018 3:36 am

So, I recently bought a bunch of brass tacks to help make a perch for my new hawk. I have a bunch left over. I've always liked the old west/Indian style of decorating gun stocks with brass tacks to create designs. Has anyone done this before? Anyone have a design or pattern they really like to help give inspiration?

My browser says your link is unsafe, so I didn't see that. My browser is a sissy.

I like them on the stock more than on the forearm. Probably because I imagine I wouldn't like the feel on the forearm. I like simple more than ornate. But clearly, it's a matter of personal taste.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D
