Time for some good old fashioned gun porn

It has been far too long since we recognized those gunsmiths among us who really shouldn't be touching tools. So we are back here to shine the light of shame on their brilliant work.
If you missed our previous Golden Poop Awards, scroll to the bottom of this post for links to the past posts.
This years awards are brought to you buy the following generous sponsors:
The Wile E. Coyote School of Gunsmithing
In association with The Acme Products Corporation: "Wide Selection, Instant Delivery, Questionable Quality, That's ACME!"
and Hayes Specialty Fasteners: "We have a fastener for every specification"
Our first category this year is Optics Mounting.....We know how difficult it can be to buy a scope mount, or pay a trained gunsmith to install a set of rings for you. These brave souls risked internet infamy by attempting to install optics on their own. Our nominees are:
Enel Darrel Justice made this wonderful mount for his SKS using the families signature product.
Perhaps they can be sponsors next year?
Welding and silver soldering is very difficult to master, Cletus Douche (pronounced dooshay) crafted this unique arrangement on his rifle.
Bubba Dean Anderson made this custom mount below, stating proudly, "that scope ain't goin' no wheres"
Definitely a contender is this installation performed by John Wayne Dankworth, after getting a free scope with a larger diameter objective, he couldn't find the correct size mounts at his local Walmart. So like a Marine, he improvised! His solution included relieving the barrel of his Marlin .22 Mag rifle to make room. Brilliant work Johnny!
Another classic lever action goes under the welding hood, this one was performed by Camaro Wade Smith, a contender in a previous award ceremony. Unfortunately he was disqualified last time due to his use of a tape measure. Let's wish him luck this year!
These next two contestants show pure street credibility. The first one done in Ghetto Gold Rust-O-Leum with the gangster side mount optic, it was built by D'Squarious Jackson Jr.
This next one was just as brilliant, done in candy ass colors and featuring the gangster side mount. Unfortunately we found out after his entry that the owner of the pistol: Xmus Jaxon Flaxon-Williams had actually not performed the work himself and was thus disqualified from competition.
The good news is the shop that did the work will be able to compete in the best paint job category!
