    Left handed flintlock question

    So the experienced voices I hear are telling me to have a spare mainspring on hand and maybe other breakable parts. solid advise, I always plan on the worst that could happen so I can handle the minor stuff that does. 38 years of building bombs has made me a creature of habit with the safety and...

    A group question

    I need to talk to my mentor, he had a shop for awhile and closed it over management issues. Now he's concentrating on his main business of laser marking (he does all of guns Savage Arms makes). There's only one gunsmith in the area and he's a pain, used him once and never again.

    A group question

    I would have to support more than traditional shooters, and getting the nesissary licenses would allow me to do just that.

    A group question

    Good points to consider, I am currently taking finishing an AS in firearms technology from Sonoran Desert Institute. I don't think it has prepared me to set up as a competent gunsmith, but it's given me enough to know what I need to learn and refine. I'm in a good spot where I don't need a...

    A group question

    Thanks, I'm lost as to how I'd judge interest. All of the shops in my area have small BP sections that mostly focus on that "other kind of rifle".

    A group question

    Please delete this if I am violating any rules! I read the rules and don't think I am, but I don't want to be that guy I am considering opening a store/gunsmith shop in western Mass focused on muzzleloading guns. Aimed at hunters, reenactors and target shooters. I'm thinking of offering...

    Left handed flintlock question

    I also plan on building a lefty even though I am equally capable RH. In fact when I get elected emperor my first proclamation will be to ban RH scissors. Share the pain.
