    Got a call, is there a respectable resource located within the Chicago Metro area to get fit and have your gun adjusted/altered?!

    Good afternoon Jay. I thought Chuck and Judy N. went to Brad Taft? I think that he is out west a bit. Or maybe this gentleman; http://www.elitecustomgunstocks.com/Home_Page.html
    I think he is in New Lenox.
    Have a good day, Rodbuster.

    The fellow who did my stock work moved to Kansas. Tom Mason. I think he's in Liberty, Kansas now. Sorry to see him go.

    Its a lean market for top-quality stock work in the Chi-Town area...

    I'll bet if you called Kolar they would be glad for the business and nobody has better stockmaking equipment. Racine, Wisconsin is a straight shot down the Tollway, and less than an hour from Chicago.

    Try Mike Ghiselli out of Maywood Sportsmens. Does great stock work but takes his time.

    Hey Joe, when we attended that stockfitting class with Rolin, didn't we shoot with a gentleman who was a stockfitter? I thought his name was Tom, and he was from the Aurora club?

    Tom Dabro was from Aurora sportsmens Club, but he passed away about 8 months ago.
