January 5, 2017SB - my good biker friend lives in Gilbert now. Had to leave San Jose because of the Liberal Nuts. He does have one son in PaloAlto still and a daughter in Gilbert. He spends much time traveling to Palo Alto for the grand kids. His daughter has 2 that he sees all the time. I don`t know if he is still taking that desert riding or not. Be careful of that California place.
January 8, 2017I`m thinking about leaving Montana and heading for AZ as well. I can visit and do some home repairs. Maybe look for another house! LOL
January 10, 2017With your weather these days - now might be a good time to hit the road.
January 11, 2017McG, I`m signing up for a gunsmithing class at the local college in Prescott so I should be there close to two years. Undecided whether I will buy another house or just rent this time.
January 12, 2017Dave - I don`t believe for one minute that you can afford to go to a gun-smithing class. I guess with your son gone you will have a room that will hold all the guns. You might have to take a wood working class to learn how to build the gun racks. You`ll have to learn how to sell one also. You will be pretty proud of your handiwork. What about all the metal working tools. I would bet you can figure out how to buy them in big eastern cities where old me retire and get rid of that stuff.
HaHaHaHa - I`m gonna live long enough to watch you build and sell some guns.
January 12, 2017McG, yeah, with both boys gone I can have a gun room in the house! I`m not sure what you mean about not being to afford to take the class. Maybe I missed it.
You`ll have to take a trip out this way. As far as fixing and selling I guess we`ll see how the whole thing goes. I have a big tool collection but don`t have a lathe or milling machine. I don`t know how deep I will get into the machining. I will probably get an FFL. I will continue to do AR-15 type builds as I have done for the last 2-3 years. The mark-up on complete rifles is so high it`s hard NOT to make money.
January 14, 2017I meant AFFORD as in building lots of really neat pieces and then not having the heart to sell them. Your own private collection will become quite something. I do have to believe you live in a part of the USA that as you become a well known gunsmith you can make a nice piece of change doing something you enjoy.
January 14, 2017Well of course I want them all for myself! LOL That`s why I have 6 motorcycles. I`m sure that I would want to keep all the firearms. I have 10 AR platform as a start. Not sure how many other long guns. Honestly haven`t looked for a few years!
This is 1 of 2 AR pistols I did.
January 15, 2017That will put a few holes in the intruder pretty quick. Space age looking. Is this something like our troops get now ???????
January 16, 2017Thanks, McG. That was a pistol (loosely! Haha) version of the AR-15. It has a light/laser and a red dot sight.
Today they are using M-4s or M-16a3s (if I remember correctly).
This is basically what the guys are packing today:
