    we all have jobs that we encounter more than others. So what your top 10 most commonly encountered jobs?

    ps- just send out my FFL application to virginia, wish me luck!:D

    I meant what tasks do you do for your customers as gunsmiths? Like drilling and tapping scopes, rebluing, etc. etc.

    Silly gunsmithy people. :>

    I think he meant the top 10 jobs in the gun smithing field. Like replacing sights, trigger springs, etc.

    It is in the gunsmithing forum. :D

    No doubt. It is a proven fact that women are smarter then men.. although I know a few that lack in that department.

    Gun cleaning is always #1
    Replace broken part #2
    Add accessory #3
    2 and 3 might be reversed
    Everything else is way down the list
    Notice how the big three items are about the same as a mechanic, except he would change oil in place of clean

    I just have good reading comprehension. And I AM still a novice to the firearms world.

    The best place to poop is in the refrigerator, of course. But then you have to take pictures to prove it.

    I almost brought a gun in a Ziploc bag to a gunsmith because I was having trouble putting it together after replacing a thumb safety. I'll bet gun smiths get a lot of that, too. But my stubborness prevented me from doing that and after a month of trying off and on as my patience permitted, I finally got it back together.

    I have a favorite place should I say that here or would that be considered off topic?

    Winds for me the "Baggie" full of parts would be numbers 4,5 and 6 .
    4 check if you have all needed parts. 50% don't
    5 clean parts
    6 reassemble

    Too funny, I just thought it was me that have had those OH SH! moments when trying to reassemble a part of a gun I have never reassembled. Luckily YouTube and Forums have prevented me from having to do it......YET!

    Exactly. Youtube and lots and lots of support from the members here helped me get my gun back together. I felt like a million bucks when I finally got the job done.
