Needed a new front sight post and a barrel bushing and I needed someone to press it in properly. Reply Me, “Yeah, I know, but it was like that when I bought it. Can you fix it?” Reply “Yeah, I know, but it was like that when I bought it. Can you fix it?” I gotta remember that. *cough* 🙂 Reply Really, Will “slappy” Smith ?? does anyone here give two shits about ANYTHING that comes outta THAT piehole ?? Reply Well while I might not agree with Will’s views all the time and I’m sure he has his faults, like we all do, he does know about guns….saw a video with him and others with guns. Will was the only one who knew his gun safety. Actually it surprised me… Reply If we’re both thinking of the same video, Will’s not really that much of an expert. The person who added commentary to this famous clip voiced the same opinion I did. If you take a gun from someone for safety’s sake, remove the mag (don’t put it back in), lock the slide open, and *then* hand it over. Reply In Will’s defense, you have no idea what it’s like to live with that woman. Reply I’m actually laughing right *now*, Gov. Like the famous wall poster of a beautiful model once said : “No matter how good she looks, someone, somewhere, is tired of putting up with her shit”… 🙂 Reply Many years ago, I had my ” guy ” order me a custom recoil spring for an EAA carry comp I had set up to run 45Super in. He gave me an estimate of ” around $ 680 -said ” sure as shit your gonna need a new barrel and frame by the next time you come in. ” Well, I paid too much for the spring, I think It was around $35, but that’s ALL it’s needed for at least 1200 rounds, and has never missed a beat with 185 grain ” stout ” loads. I hear he’s still the best one handed ‘smith in the area… something about a 50 BMG incident. Reply A man has to know his limitations. Reply The problem usually is, the length of time it takes for someone to realize the wisdom of that. (To this day, I’m still learning, and it hasn’t fully sunk in yet… 🙁 ) Reply When your under the log deck trying to pry a log back on and you ain’t got the strength to do it or the speed to get out of the way when it slips. To old, to slow, and not ready to die. Reply Instant death is not the worst thing that can happen to you when you are working with trees and logs You know how stupid this whole subject matter is, ugh, I had to comment on it. Yea I know what that makes me…. Reply Intelligent. Reply I would love to learn how to gun-smith…even just a wee bit. However, I am one year into a 3-year project to restore significant portions of my home. Since I am doing it all myself, my gun-time is best spent in training and practice. Maybe when I retire….. All you guys and gals building and fixing your own gats, hats off to you! Reply A man’s got to know his limitations. Pretty sure someone famous said that once. Reply Better it be you than your wife. Otherwise you have to bitchslap the gunsmith right in public. Reply Hah hah 😁 Reply When I bought this house, it was such a mess that I had to bring in some help just to make it livable. The plumber I hired to clear pipes called me into the basement and pointed at the slop sink. “Who did that?” he asked in an accusatory voice. “Did what?” I countered. “The hot and cold feeds are reversed” he said. “The hot is on the.right and the cold is on the left!” I told him it must have been.like that when I purchased the house. I just never noticed. I am sure he.did.not believe me, but it was true. 21 years later, the hot and cold for the slop sink are still reversed. I.like it that way. Reply For left-handed people? Reply Good fortune to you in your journey of renovations. I’m still doing the same 25 years on. Ugh! A house is a terrible thing to own. Reply Moneypit…like a starter wife. Reply The only thing worse is to not own a home. Especially with the economy being destroyed by biden and company. Reply Lifesavor: “21 years later, the hot and cold for the slop sink are still reversed. I like it that way.” Beats trying to fix it all to hell. Reply Yeah, but it’s worse when you bought it from that guy in the first place. it was his handiwork. I have seen it with cars for decades. “Race car.” Reply I have observed some terrible work by a supposed “gunsmith”. He turned a keepsake WW1 rifle into a piece of crap. Reply I send my stuff halfway across the country, because I don’t trust any of the morons around here. Reply I’m not bad at fixing gunms, if I dont have to temper parts. Right now I’m wrapped up into 1873 SA’s , girlfiend is jealous mine works smooth like oiled glass but wont let me touch hers. She was looking at the exploded diagrams this evening. This might be an eopossomculating experience for me in lifes lessons? Keep em bare foot, in the kitchen, and pregnant with one kid in the crib and one that wont stay in. No TV. No Radio. If you want music, sing songs about what a great guy you got. Reply “…eopossomculating experience…” Writing that one down. Reply My former (retired) gunsmith had his “idiot tax”. It was double if you brought him parts in a ziplock baggie. Reply Term I heard in my youth was ‘shoe box’ gun. Reply I call that a “basket case.” A long time ago, I went on a field service call on a machine like that in a land far far from home. I still cringe when I think about that. Reply What’s a gunsmith?
