Rob, appreciate all your videos which have got me going on the building train currently have 6 rifles and 4 pistols to complete. Bottom fell out in my life when wife passed to cancer, thank you for the injection
[email protected] ....my condolences bud . Nothing is worse than your love passing . My GF , soon to be wife , was killed 13 years ago and everyday it hurts and I want to bawl my eyes out when I think on her . I'm glad and quite touched that I have been any kind of inspiration to you . I truely love trade guns and they are such a big part of my life .. I'm no master builder , by any stretch of the imagination , but hopefully I can help some folks out that want to build a trade gun . They are so ridiculously priced today .... Take care bud .
