    Default Finally my first blackie

    a shy under 6' but beautiful markings so he's a mounter now... I was also learning how to skin and prep at the time... Bad pic but you get to see the markings at least...lol


    If you cant stand behind the troops in Iraq.. Feel free to stand in front of them.

    I can't see the pic (blocked on gov. computer) but congrats anyway! I'm hoping to get my first while I'm home on leave in August.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.

    Default Very nice!

    Congrats! What type of skinning job is he doing? Is that going to be a life size? That is a GREAT white patch. The reason I ask is he is skinning around it.
