    That picture was from last month. I sprayed it in 2010 - not a rejuvination. I'm hangared which helps.

    This just a Polytone white with Aerothane trim colors. And the Aerothane white is flattened to match the Polytone. If Polytone is chilled before it is sprayed it has a bit more shine to it.

    That's the make of these shoes. This is their Alaska model. They're big shoes but offer a lot of floatation. I really like the bindings.

    Something kind of similar with a Ruger American in .308 Win. A couple of years ago, when I put this together, this started as a $300 rifle. The scope is a Leupold 1x4.
