I reckon my Gunsmith /Barrel Guy should rename his shop after me or at least put a plauque up in my Honour ! It's that time of the year again when I send him a whole passel of work ! Barrels to be replaced, worn parts replaced ect ! It's got to the point he actualy rings me to find out how much work I've got for him as it quiet downs at this time of the year for him !

Hey Dave,

Why not go for the glory, and ask for part ownership of his shop.

Or maybe his first born, or something like that.

LOL, Dave.
My bad.
I can see that I didn't fully grasp the seriousness of your situation.

Yes I'm a lost cause ! The Barrel Guy I deal with is the Son of the Barrel Guy that I started dealing with 40yrs ago & my Father delt with them before me ! My Gun Guy is known a the Crab Pot ......Youcan find your way in OK it's getting out again thats the problem ! It's one of those places you can ,sit & talk for hours & catch up with Mates
The best or worst thing is he accepts Body organs as payment ! (my kids are living quite well with one kidney each )

That's a GOOD one! I think I know a couple of places like that! SWMBO has even designated the section of town where they're located as a "No Drive" zone for me.:-D

A good honest gunsmith that really is a gunsmith seems to be hard to come by these days. I went through a few before I found one I can trust and not try and rip me off. I have taken enough firearm repair classes to be able to do most my own repairs but it is nice to have back up when it gets over your head.
