I arrived in Las Vegas Sunday afternoon, a couple days before the SHOT Show officially started. Monday was Media Day, which is the day before SHOT and is spent at a shooting range in the desert outside of Vegas.

I think it lessens the structural integrity, and the fat makes the bone a bit tawny colored.
