Ammunition as art

I have been very fortunate in stumbling across Bob Reynolds of Templar Consulting and Randy Young of Young Guns (Both of Apex, NC). Bob makes beautiful firearms, and Randy sells them.

I also happen to be fortunate enough to know photographer Ken Boney.

When Bob told me that the Alaskan Hunter he built for Sarah Palin was coming back into the shop before being shipped to the Governor, we set up a photo shoot and let Ken work his magic. While Ken is still processing the photos of the rifle, I thought I’d share some of the photos he composed of the unique .50 Beowulf ammunition made just for this project.

    Small world. I lived in Cary, NC (right next door) and went to Apex Sr. High School, 1976-80. Beautiful craftsmanship lives! IIRC, The Beltman is also based in Apex, and he makes excellent gun belts.

    Heh, he sure is; I happen to be wearing one of his belts as I type!

    I believe Kenneth "Von Dutch" Howard engraved his name on a bullet, and jealously guarded it, so no one could fire "the bullet with his name on it" at him. This would have been 40 years ago, estimated, in the 1970s. Von Dutch Lives
