Wish I could have been there but I had classes this week myself. I'm glad you had some of your friends there. I'm sure was right up front! I miss that ole coot so tell him I say hey. And I wish you the best at your new endevor. When I'm done you can build me a nice sniper!
I have eleven more months myself until I join the ranks. Not Penn however, im at the Colorado School of Trades. It feels good seeing others in the biz filling the shoes of the many in the home stretch of their careers. All the best gunsmiths where I come from are retiring and closing doors. Good news for me, but questionable for the industry. Where are you setting up shop?
