I am an unapalogistic Joey J5 fanboy. The guy hits stuff out of the air with his home made sling. 'Nuff said for me.
I asked how long the list was for a Custom Coyote. He said about 3 years, give or take a month. I bugged him 7 more times and he said that he would sleep on it.
Then a month later I get a little package from New Mexico. Inside was a well lived V.1 Coyote with a hand written note. "Moses, the waiting time for an LBS is now around 4 years. However, I found this original 'Yote in the back of my shop. I'm sorry for the rabbit hair and the little blood spot on the handle. Shoot well grasshopper! J5"

Amazing. An actual J5. I knew what I needed to do!!

For starters J5 needed a new name. He is now Obiwonjoeykenobe J5 Lujan. I then sanded the hair guts off the 'Yote. Then I profiled some choils for my pinch digits. The beach glass came from Fort Bragg where I dive for abalone and scallops which I used for gripper bumps. I added the lanyard hole and the handle profile so that y'all know I am a RH hold gangsta shooter!

A spritz of stain, a spritz of BLO followed by a dab of carwax and a buff. This sling is now reborn and will keep it's place on my desk as an indoor shooter and reminder that whenever you are shooting flying aspirin you need to shoot low!

Peace! MM
