    I created a thread on trapshooter looking for a leather covered comb for a K80. Joe responded and said he could make one which he did. I could not be happier, and the communication was great and on time. Bob Coffey

    Bob, good fair post on your business with a vendor.

    This doesn't surprise me. I have seen some beautiful stock work by the gunfitter and several friends have had work done by Joe and speak highly of him. I've always known him to be helpful to shooters and he has a long history of helping youth shooters.

    I'd sure like to know how he adds palm-swells to existing stocks and gets them to look original.

    Bob Thank you! If you get a chance try to post a picture of the completed comb.

    Kenny I'll try to post a pict of the last one done and next time I'll take pics of the whole project.

    New Jersey. UPS works fine for many projects and since I have most major trap guns P,K,Dt10,beretta680's I rarely need your gun for any work.

    Looks like Bob D.'s K-80 Trap Special stock with a larger palm swell and extended grip. Nice work.

    I just sent a blank I bought from amboy49 for a Perazzi. Looking forward to seeing his work. He's got to be damn good and confident to post his work with this bunch of vultures. Dave T.

    I see Joe is getting the notoriety he deserves. He has done great work on 2 of my guns. The finish is outstanding, too..

    No website I couldn't stand the volume I'm a one person shop. PM and phone are the only way unless you live close by. Gave up on e-mail as well too much junk mail I don't need.
