    I'd ask for a few professional estimates, make an average in price. Then inform others involved of what you found on pricing, see what they say.

    waksupi replied to a thread Gifted hobbyist wanted in Our Town
    I can finish the wood, but can't do any other work on the gun considering my ffl doesn't cover gunsmith work. Wood would need to be removed from the gun, as the barreled action can't be left on the premises, again due to ffl regs.

    With a new oven, put a test bullet in, and leave it for 20 minutes to be sure it doesn't slump. If not, you are good to go.

    I do it with flinters, too. Usually a few light bounces on the ground, or slap the stock if the snow is deep.

    It may be normal for those safeties, but are not safe. I consider them a poor safety, and will no longer put them on a rifle. The nylon bushing wears quickly, making them unsafe in my opinion. Although they aren't cheap, I put Winchester style three...

    I pick up a lot of range brass. I take them home and deprime every one on a Lee Challenger single stage whilst watching TV. This gives me an opportunity to inspect the brass and when deprimed they are tossed into a carefully placed cardboard box. ...

    Why not just catch them, and take them somewhere else? They aren't fast, and you can easily grab them by the neck or tail. Did it quite a few times when I was a kid.

    When I build a rifle, I close my eyes, mount the rifle to my shoulder. Open my eyes, and see if I am lined up properly to the sight plane. Adjust as necessary. I adjust both pitch and comb height.

    Logwood can be obtained from trapping suppliers. It is how traps are dyed. Aqua Fortis can give various colors. If you use it, one coat will generally give a nice reddish color on maple. Multiple coats will make it darker. I use a heat gun to do...

    A friend was working the flight line at Maelstrom AFB at Great Falls. He said one night they pumped 250 gallons of avgas into a mosquito before they realized what it was. He is a very honest man, and I have no reason to doubt his word.
