No Kidding?! You have two of my most favorite places to eat on this planet there. Black Bear Diner for breakfast and In and Out Burger by the mall for lunch/dinner. I loved my time there. Used to know a pretty hot box of chauks named Katie Y. from down there... *wolf whistle*

I did some State Licensend Boar "hunting" just south of Anderson. That was the first blood my .308 ever spilled.

she sounds like one well built girl,im building a 308 rig myself but not as good as what you made , maybe have to rethink some of my build.JD have read alot of your posts and it seems you got your head screwed on strait so keep hanging around your smith and soak up all the info you can.I was spending a lot of time with my gunsmith and pretty sure i was driving him nuts with questions and one day he put me to work, i learned a lot but he passed on and i miss the friendship and tutoriols.

Thanks Ravenwolf - It sounds like you and I got our start about the same way. Once I started talking to my gunsmith, I just wanted more and more out of him. Then I was between contracts and just started showing up in the mornings and cleaning stuff up, asking what I could help with and pretty soon I was running a lathe for him and doing a half assed job at glass bedding. He never let any of my work go out the door before he looked it over, but pretty soon I was good enough to get joked about getting my apprentice card stamped... LOL

I am sorry to hear of your loss. Gunsmithing isn't something that pays a ton of money, so unless you have been doing it for a long time and have a reliable and loyal customer base, you aren't going to be able to feed a family. As the older generation of 'smiths pass on, hopefully we will get some people willing to stick out and build quality sticks for the future generations.

Best of luck with the build. I look forward to reading about it and seeing your pictures in the near future. *thumbs up*

JD

The Black Bear in Redding was the 2nd one that they opened ever. The 1st was up in Mt. Shasta.

LOL I am from Corning. 50 miles south of Redding.

Black Bear is some of the best down home warm your innards just like mama's cooking places to eat. I have to go and eat there every time I make it back home.
