    I really need some help!

    I let my son pick out some wood online for his birthday (May 31) to have put on his Perazzi as a graduation present from high school. I am getting worried that it won't be ready for his birthday.

    I bought a inletted stock and forearm and had a guy locally do the stock and forearm "fit to metal" with the fitting measurements (i.e. LOP, cast, etc...) to my son.

    I am trying to find someone that is within 2 hours of Sacramento, CA that I can take it to have the final sanding, the finish, and the checkering put on it, since I don't want to have to ship it to someone.

    Anyone have any recommendations (local or not)?

    Thanks!

    Try Ed Aubert - pronounced O-BEAR - in Suisun City. 707-426-6571. One of the very best in the country.

    Ed Aubert does some of the finest stockwork in the country! His checkering is hard to beat!He also works with the shooter to get the stock dimensions just right! Been doing it a long time!

    If you talk to him, tell I said "Hello"!

    Forget Eddie and his stupid prices.....and the stocker at Commanche is proud of his work also. Make a run to Reno next week for the Golden West Grand.....go see John Fittinger (Stocker John). He will be in the trailer with Giacomo. Great work....decent prices.....reasonable turnaround.

    I've had some work done by Rodney Shimamoto in Lodi. Reasonable price, fast turn around, and he even delivered it to me while I was at a shoot at Coon Creek. Rodney Shimamoto, 518 Palm Ave, Lodi, CA 95240, 209-369-0998.
