Wow, just wow. This is a tremendous loss to our world. I'm a little bit in shock I think.
My immediate thought was that they'd sell vs close... even a bad deal beats nothing.Anyone wanna go halvsies?
This is unfortunately true. A "gunsmith" these days seems to be anyone with a punch set and sight pusher, "building" AR15's and hot rodding Glocks.I was just at Alex Hamilton's Ten Ring Precision Shop in San Antonio to pick up my Smith and Wesson 625. He commented that real gunsmiths are aging out,and with plastic guns taking over the market true revolver and pistolsmiths (he named colleague Bill Laughridge specifically) are retiring.
