I took the MGS course to gain more knowledge about guns. A friend of mine, John Newberry, referred me to the school and has been a successful gunsmith for years. I want to do some work with him part-time, again for the knowledge and experience. I’ve been retired for 2 years now and spend a lot of time at the range, taking care of my guns is important to me. I also mentioned a while ago that I got into cowboy action shooting last year and I want to learn to smooth out the actions of those guns. The overall experience was enjoyable and the projects were fun. My favorite project was refinishing the stock.
