YEA!!! I finally posted a freekin project/s. Still workin on the shadowbox also, but got these done in-between. Penn St. Bolt Action kits. A wee bit pricey, but, what the hey.. Very good quality, fun and super ez. Very kool little bolt action sound when you “load” the pen.. 3 out of Bicote, and 2 out of African Blackwood. I had a few other pics while on the lathe, but, they were blurry, so, ya only git the 2. :) Thnx for lookin.

Roger, those look great. I’m making pens now, but haven’t bought this kit yet. I’ll bet they’re popular with that slide-action bolt.

Hey Roger – I count 34 projects posted….but who’s counting? Nice looking little pen guns. No permit required, right?

Who knows, in the right situation, maybe the bolt action pen will get you out of a bad situation. “Feeling lucky punk” HA !

Looks like fun Roger….

Nicely done, and it’s always good to know you’re getting something done in your shop.
