No acualy he didnt attack you at all. The first thing you say is thats bull crap to what he said..It was his opinion. You could have just given the kid a tip instead of trying to prove him wrong. You say you were a scout sniper? Act like it. Be respectfull of other peoples opinion. Im not trying to be rude or anything but really you need to respect everyone on this forum if you want to stay here. You cant just get mad and say someone is wrong its there opinion. Just put in your 2¢ and leave it up to the person asking for advice wether or not they want to take it. Again im not being rude im just saying this is a place for people to gather and have good fun conversations.

Great. Where do I send my guns so that you can work on them?

Just kidding. I'd rather work on my own guns. Pal.

I am sure you would be welcome here if you weren't do defensive. 5 or so posts and you are ripping longstanding members?

Bad form, Pal. Bad form.

I have a bunch of lathe experience and im. A certified tool maker so should be no problem there if I do or don't need it! I was just wondering if there's some type of online class? I live in Michigan and no schools around me offer gun smithing courses! And I have a kid wife and job so I can't just pick up and leave state to go to school!

Despite his lack of etiquette, (which is taken very seriously in online forums) moagunsmiths has a valid point. Most of the general repair work I do rarely needs a lathe or mill. They are necessary tools, but are not needed when your just starting. Files are the tool the beginner must master.

I was thinking of taking a Machinist class at a collage nearby for a year and get that out of the way
