    Sure are some great comments on the Bowen and Seitz guns on another thread. How does the Mach One (is it now called the Infinity) compare. Thanks for any comments or thoughts. Bob Farne

    I like shooting #83 and will not sell it. The Inifinity is the new gun and is a little different. These guns are known for their triggers [very fast lock times] and solidly built. Great wood!! Fred

    Thanks for your comments an the MachOne and the information about Dennis and his staff. I haven't shot registered trap but am thinking about it. I just came back to registered skeet shooting last year after a 15 year layoff and had forgotten what fun clay target shooting is. Last summer my 45 year old, engineer, son and I also took up the sporting clay shooting. We only shooter "Hunter class", which is the "just for fun", group and what a blast. I was proud to make the 2007 Veteran All American Skeet team and had a very nice time at the Randolph AFB, club last year. You Texas people are just delightful to be around, even tho you do shoot trap. LOL. On the way home to Albuquerque, I stopped off at Robert Paxtons, and bought a sporting clays krieghoff, for the son and it matches my skeet gun with the sub gauge tubes.

    Sorry to carry on so much, but again thanks for your thoughts. Kind regards. Bob F

    Bob,

    I just got back from a stock fitting with Dennis and let me tell you what he will do for you. He will stick with you until the job is completely done and done right and you'll have fun doing it to boot. Dennis is full of trap shooting stories and they pour out of him. I savored the experience from start to finish.

    Dennis lives his work and any problem or issue is none to large. Dennis will solve it. He has the experience. He has the ability. His team is equally awesome. Specialists everywhere.

    It was really fun to see my gun come over, and then up into the sight line. Then we worked on the grip, then the pitch and the balance. And then you shoot targets which is great. You shoot as much as you want. Until you are comfortable, it ain't over.

    Then we went to a local club and shot some more. Then more fitting and shooting on my own. I left totally confident in my new used gun. If there's one more tweak that needs to be done, you can be sure Dennis will be there to do it. It's his way. You can relax. It will get done.

    Dennis' whole company is personable and highly skilled. Give him a try.

    Keep us posted, OK Joe? And thanks for the report. First-hand stories are always the best.

    Sure Neil.

    All that stuff about a heavy gun is relevant in a hunting gun that you have to carry around all day. But when you shoulder these guns, they don't feel heavy at all. They really fit to the point where the weight is just gone! Dennis makes it so.

    I can't wait to get out to the line with it again. I shot a flat of shells through it before I left town. That's important.

    When the fitting is over, they copy the model to the wood you've picked out.

    That bondo on wood stock is the perfect method. A little sand paper and it's changed. Took too much off, just put more back on. It's awesome.

    Regards.

    Joe and all others who take the time to answer questions from the uninformed, THANKS.

    The wife and I will be on our way up to American Fork, Utah, in the morning, to pick up a diesel from the Chev dealer
    for our farm and I must stop at Spanish Fork, to see where the well recommended Club is and that I will look forward to shooting at, after I can get hooked up with Dennis. Kind regards. Bob F.

    Thanks Joe for the birthday wish, they are coming now only a year apart which seems to be about 30 minutes in duration!

    This new gun will be fun for you to shoot some great scores with but I'm sure the tinkerer in you will be alittle bored; now you won't be able to improve on perfection!!!! Hope to shoot with you some day and see the new "Machkuhna"! Biff

    I just loved visiting Dennis. If you have a gun with a standard stock take it to Dennis. Any gun. He'll fix you right up.

    Biff,

    Tinkering with a Mach One is having Dennis build different kinds of stocks for it. He's done about everything. He's got a Selka style stock hanging from his peg board! Didn't have the guts to ask for one, yet. He said a guy in CA shoots the snot out of it.

    Biff,

    I've known some workaholics and from what I saw Dennis isn't one. He's very relaxed, telling stories, focused at the right time, leisurely lunch, into his work... Yes, he's busy, but I'm guessing he's like me; the family keeps his perspective balanced.

    I'd say we're both concept guys. Different concepts, but concepts nonetheless. That's how I'd put it. Man, was it fun.

    You'd better go visit him now Biff.

    Joe
