As promised a while ago, finally got everything put together, and assembled the race guns for a new "family picture".

Kidd sells their .870" muzzle devices as "compensators", so I bought one for each...but these just are flash hiders, so I ordered the "28 hole" version, which are hopefully real compensators so the timer can hear the shots better.

I was looking around for laminate grips to fit the Mark IV, but could only find them in red and blue...no pink or lime green

VQ must have made pink and lime green target grips in the past; I saw pictures of them on the web when I was looking, but no where to be found for purchase now.

I've seen them in many colors for MK III's (and actually had a set of orange ones to match my Raptor) but not the MK IV's

ETA: Contact Scott at Volquartsen and ask him if they are, or will be, available...worse he can do is say no..but if he knows people are looking for them, they may make them

Got the girls' new guns sighted in. Couple of the best muzzle flashes I managed to catch. Couldn't get any muzzle flash captures with their Kidd rifles.

Put blue VQ grips on my MK4 Lite so it would match the blue barracuda stock on my Kidd rifle a little better.

A poor excuse is better than no excuse.

Our first attempt at Rimfire Challenge. We met our met our main goal....have fun! Cowkid1 had some mistakes/malfunctions and butterflies...so did the rest of the Cowfamily. Cowkid2 was the class of our little posse; she did really well with her zombie green guns.

(I can't remember how to post YouTube links so they play in the post...)

Here's the reply I got back from Scott:

"We would have to special order that wood in - do you have a pic of exactly what you are looking for and I will see what I can find.

Scott"

I sent him back a picture of the pink and green guns, we'll see what he says next.
