    Could anyone suggest a stock fitter closer than Wenig in Kansas City, MO.

    Might help if you mentioned where you live -- might make a difference if it's Florida versus California.

    Curious -- I thought his original post said "it's 1405 miles from here to MO" without any mention of being in Boston or Google.

    Guess I must be going blind -- yeah that's the story -- explains my poor shooting lately!!!! ;-)))

    Nope ... it cant be Boston. Mapquest says it 1431.44 miles from Boston to Kansas City and he said it was only 1405 miles.

    Would it be closer than 1405 of you drove really really fast?

    Maybe he should get a really really and I mean really fast car then Wenig could be close enough for him. ;-)

    I thought Wenig was to far or do you have a really really really fast car to shorten the distance?

    I'm taking the Boeing 717 $300 R/T (500+ MPH)


    Trap4ever I remember your post and gun well, nicest I've ever seen.


    Wish I could afford his wood for my Model 32. Maybe next time.


    This time around I'm going for utility not beauty. I've choosen Wenig based on feedback I've read here and what little I've learned about gun fitting over the years. It appears from past Wenig customer feedback Wenig does all the right things in the correct order.


    I went down the custom fit stock road once before and ended up with a nice piece of wood for $600. The fit I received gets a zero. The gentleman that made the stock was a nice guy and all, and a whiz at wood working, but didn't know enough about the finer points of fitting a trap gun to a person. It was a hobby for him not a profession.

    Yesterday the airfare with taxes etc. was $315 R/T.


    Today the airfare is $214 R/T including taxes etc. Same Midwest airline, same plane, same departure time, same airports, same flight number, and even the same seat assignment.


    Don't understand that but I like it!

    Skip- I would take the flight with some uncertainty. If your ticket can drop in price that quickly, it can also go up rapidly. What are you going to do if in mid flight, the price of your ticked increases by $100? Would you have to pay the increase in price or remain on the airplane? I remember a folk song from around 1960 about a similar problem with the MTA in Boston.

    Midwest just annonced a huge fare sale ... they do that at times and they are a great airline to fly on. If your lucky it will be one of the 2x2 seating flights with nice comfortable leather seating and fresh backed chocolate chip cookies on the plane.
