    Most of us have seen pictures of the devastation Phillip's Gunsmithing suffered when his mobile gunsmith shop was flipped over by a tornado. His insurance does not cover such damage once his trailer is unhitched and set-up as a work space. If you've ever owned a small business, you know how insurance companies loophole you to death like this. Phillip has done a LOT for the trapshooting community. His reputation is stellar, the quality of his work is excellent, and his fair prices and fast turnaround are amazing. An incident like this is financially disastrous and Phillip is not the type of person who would ask for help, so I'll ask for him - can't a bunch of us pitch in and help a friend like this out a little bit?

    I'll pledge the first $50. Please consider joining me and pledge a few dollars also.

    Send it straight to him: Phillip's Gunsmithing

    Phillip was a little late with the first job he did for me (new Delrin rib). This was some years back, he was new on the trap scene. I was in no hurry so it didn't matter. His charge to me was $0.00 and came with a genuine apology. Considering the quality of his work, honest dealings with customers and very fair pricing...Phillip gives more than he gets.

    Check will go out in Monday's mail.

    Thanks GW22...classy move!

    I'm in, we need Phillip in our midst. He's done 4 release triggers for me & answered some pretty dumb questions along the way.

    Phillip called me the morning of the tornado and said he was sending out my action from a Browning 325 that had been sent to him for trigger work. After seeing the reports on TV that evening, I wondered if I would ever see my part again. It arrived a couple days later VIA UPS. I have shot the gun 400 rounds in the last two days and you would never know it is a Browning trigger! My check will be in Monday's mail. THANK YOU PHILLIP!

    I'm sending a check as well; Phillip did trigger work for me. We need folks like Phillip to stay in the world of trap.

    Good luck,

    We are in a tight spot right now, but the one thing that we can offer us to auction of a painting here on ts.com and send that money to Phil. I'll make a separate thread.

    Don't know him, but am also a small business owner. Difficult to imagine the emotional toll let alone the monetary. Check is on the way Monday. Mike
