    This is not just a shameless plug, I would like to get some more ideas. So does anyone have a project or idea that I could or should write about?

    Looking for a project to restore....I only charge enough to cover expenses. Anyone got a gun they want restored?

    Or what its worth, I have read your blog, and found it quite informative and entertaining. I have even gone as far as leaving a comment, but the comment process isn't very friendly to Luddites like myself.

    Would like to see the weapons of great soldiers like Sgt. York, Eddie Murphy, George Custer(great?) etc. Whaddya think?

    Re: My Blog

    These are awesome posts, if I wasn't packing for a trip I'd have some time to check more of them out.

    Also shows me how far I have to go as a "shadetree gunsmith". My recent Mossberg 500 project where I combined 3 different guns plus new parts had very mixed results. And it's ugly as heck, I learned the limitations of Brownells Alumahyde (it's not very tough).
    Douché: Pronounced "do-shay" and used like "touché", but in reply to something done or said that's utterly douchetastic e.g. "Wow, you went and did a selfie in the spray tan booth. Douché!"
