    Holy cow that looks great! No way that's slipping out of your hand, how did you do that? It looks clean.

    Scary... I have actually wondered if this was possible with an acceptable outcome. Congratulations! You win... Great job. The pattern and stop points look excellent.

    Now... How long did this take?

    Craig,

    About 4.5 hours

    As far as where I stopped, I just got a good grip on the frame, and looked at where my firing hand thumb ended, and went just about an 1/8th" past that.

    Roman,

    Yes I did

    Just wanted to show it off (and give people ideas for their own)

    You caught me.

    I am ashamed.

    It is a little big, but I can hide it under anything thicker than a single t shirt. (button-up or pull over long sleeve, etc...)

    Looks very professional. You could start a sideline job! Of course, I'd hate to have to pay you HOURLY!

    Good job!

    eh...smart thing would be to make 2-3 different sized templates. Something like a small .5x.5 square, 1x1 and 2x2 or something. Each plate would have like 50 small pins welded to the bottom and would have a solder iron attachment neck or something. Mass tupperware grippy rollout tool

    Looks great. Takes more patience than I have. My P99 would would be the ugliest handgun on the planet.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
