    I've bought three guns from him, all long distance deals, all went smoothly. He's a good guy to do business with in my opinion.

    Echo the above comments about Joel, also highly recommend Mark S. who does their adjustable combs, pads, gracoils, etc. Quality work, done when he tells you.
    Good people.

    I have done business with Joel numerous times. Joel is without question the most reputable person you could deal with.

    Bought a 3 barrel Browning skeet set from him many years ago, and a Beretta stock within the last year. Both times he was great to deal with, and everything was as good or better than the descriptions.

    I've dealt with him regarding two K-80's. He's outstanding to deal with, very accurate in his description of the gun you want to purchase. I would go back to him again without hesitation. Michael

    To all the kudos listed above I'll add he gives fair prices for trade ins. Zero complaints for my three transactions with Joel and Mark.

    I have purchased 2 shotguns for Joel and Sam. Both took what ever time was necessary to answer questions or understand to requirements. My latest purchase was a 687 unsingle. I have shot nothing but 24s and 25s after the first two rounds. But the gun fits me after adjusting the rib and comb. I provided Sam with my desired comb height and there shop trimmed and set it when they installed the adjustable comb. Needless to say I love the gun. I like a little heavier gun so I added 6oz to the forearm and 8oz to the stock.

    Joel and Matt have been absolutely great to work with. I have purchased 2 687 Silver Pigeons from Joel and Matt. Great pricing and a fair trade on one of them. Also Mark Simchick did great work on the adjustable comb on both of them. From the time I placed the order the stock was done in two days or so, and beautifully done I might add.

    I've been doing business with Joel for the last several years and find the total gun/accessories purchase experience second to none. Mark Shimchick's stock mods are also very note worthy. His work is exceptional, done in a timely matter and fairly priced.
