    Does anyone know if Darrel is on vacation... I have tried all day to reach Spears Gunshop and just get a recording, but I can't leave a message?

    I talked with Darrel on Oct 18th. He is behind in his workload because he has been very sick, he didn't say with what. He may have had a relapse which would explain the inability of leaving a message. I sure hope he's OK. Bob K

    I attempted to call today both numbers listed in Trap & Field with no luck, the message service for both numbers would not work.

    Hopefully we will get a update here from someone as to how he's doing.....

    Thanks

    On my last post, I said he had the gun from Oct 7th, he accepted delivery on Sept 7, 2007. I am now getting worried since I cannot reach him by phone.

    Yes, I hope he is ok first, but I wish he would put a message on his phone or answer our emails. Maybe someone in Kansas can go by and try to find something out about his intentions? This kind of non-response cannot help his great business.

    Seems like if he is buried behind busy or ill, he might not have time to surf the net an post notes here. Also, he wouldn't be the first craftsman to avoid the phone so that he could focus on trying to get.

    From all the posts I have read here, Spears has an outstanding reputation. Seems like if I had trusted him enough to ship my gun to him in the first place, I would be a little patient with getting it back. I don't know what his normal turn around is, but here in the northwest there are a couple of gunsmiths that take six to eight weeks to complete their work and return the gun. A long time to wait, but their work is worth it.

    Just my opinion guys, I hope this doesn't turn into a bashing of someone with a good reputation.

    Not bashing, but his promise was three weeks... it has now going on 9 weeks. I certainly relied on that good reputation and am willing to wait if Darrell is ill, I would just like some communication about when to expect it back.

    He's had one of my guns since 9/20, at which time he said it would take four weeks. I was just about to give him a call. Guess I'll give it another week or so. Now, stop calling the man so he can finish MY gun. Thanks!

    He received my BT 100 trigger on Aug 4th( and cashed check same day) to convert to release.Still no trigger after several follow up calls. Three weeks turned into 3+ months.Will ask for refund and return of my trigger. Hope it is not lost. BT100 triggers are hard to come by.
