    Brady,

    I hate to say this, But good luck finding any quality gunsmith to work on trap guns around here. I have not heard anything good about the gunsmiths in the area.

    I heard that the guys in the old Dunn Auto building in Moses Lake do good work. They rebuilt a SKB trigger for a guy at our club. I would get references.

    Don't want to high jack Brady's thread, but do any of you know anybody or gun shops that sell used trap guns out there? Son is stationed at Bangor and is looking for a used gun, but would like to buy in person. Seattle area is also good. Also does any of you shoot at any clubs close to Bremerton/Silverdale area or anywhere in the Seattle area? We have looked at clubs on websites but looking for some first hand info. Thanks Paul

    Brady,

    First I heard about Phillip's being Evergrgeen this year. He was there several years ago. He was in Texas, moved to Wisconson and back to Texas. I shipped my XT to him in Wisconson for a release trigger. I would recommend him if you are not in a hurry. There have been many post on this web site about is quality work. He is one of the few that are highly recommended. But for local gunsmiths, like I said above good luck. Unless you have a Ljutic and take it to the factory in Yakima there are none in the area worth a recommendation.

    PJ999, Stan Bise in Moses Lake has quite a few trap guns to choose from. I will try to get his number.

    PJ999,

    The Poulsbo Sportsmans Club is maybe 3 miles from the main gate of Bangor. He should come out and see what the guys have for sale on Saturdays.

    The only store I have seen with several trap guns in stock is Kesselrings. Used ones out in the gun racks and new ones behind the counter or in the back room. However their prices seem to be high.

    Thanks to all that gave info and sent PM's!! Am passing all on to son. He re enlisted last week so looks like he might be the Bremerton/Silverdale area for several years. Brady, thanks for letting me use your thread. Thanks Paul
