    I always admired his work. Never met him, but I've always heard he's a great guy.

    Greg-you were the best--you set the standard for quality, service & honesty. This why you will be missed. Now it is open for someone to step up to the plate to fill this void. With luck you too will have a nice retirement on your own terms.

    Enjoy your retirement Greg. A lot of shooters, myself included, are going to miss dealing with him. He has always done great work and is a true gentleman.

    I never met Greg but I heard lots of good things about him and his work. I am still new to the stock business (a year and a half) but I would like to fill the void left by Greg although I probably don't do as much as he did. I do recoil pads, the bump buster recoil reducer, adjusters, buttplates and combs and I am based out of the Oklahoma City area. My website is www.reddirtstockworks.com if anyone wants to see my work and let me know if you have any questions.
    Thanks

    Again-Greg was kinda unique--he told you when to ship your stock, etc.--this was based on his work load. he never fouled up and every job he did was perfect & there was NEVER a delay in completion. So. too all you wanna be stock guys out there. wait till you know that you can complete the job before you make promises that you can't fulfill. If a customer has to wait beyond the promised date---you most likely did a job but lost a customer.

    Hate to see him go, but it's time to injoy life.

    Suppose he finally decided that he was getting to shoot enough... Furthermore, probably thought he needed to play alittle more cribbage. Some guys just can't take it!

    Not much to add, except he was as honest as the day is long and would not mislead in order to up sell....

    Yes Gregg is a very fine stock man did a couple for me and also one of my friends. Ive also had Tron do some stocks, (combs) for me and does excellent work, also, reasonable, and quick turnaround. When Tron does a adjustable comb he gives you a package of colored washers which really works well. Give Tron a try. Also I dont mean to cut in on a thread, but Happy retirement GRegg Hissem and many more years to follow, there is nothing like it if you maintain GOOD HEALTH!! Once again good luck alex Kotter superior Wisconsin

    When he did my comb, instead of him having it for 4 weeks, he just let me know when to ship it. I had it back in 7 days.

    Why do all the good ones retire, and the tractor mechanics stay in business forever?
