Re: Looking for gunsmith in Houston to install new sights

Brian Lohman on 290 has done a variety of good work for me. Never sights specifically, but I'd trust him based upon past experience. Thank you. I've sent the slide to Novak for the sights, but it looks like he does some beautiful bluing and after sights the gun needs refinishing. I've sent him a me...

Re: Looking for gunsmith in Houston to install new sights

Try Ed Vanden Berg in Pearland. He has a website for contact information. He has down 5 jobs for me (3 on 1911s and two on 870 shotguns) and the work is excellent. I know others on this site have used him for 1911 work as well. Thank you for the reply. I'm reluctant to use him again after a previou...

Looking for gunsmith in Houston to install new sights

As the title says. Prefer north side, but willing to drive a little if the price is right. Also prefer someone that will call me back. I've tried 3 on recommendation of friends and can't get a person. It's an older Springfield mil spec so I know the slide will have to be milled. Any help is apprecia...

Re: Introduce yourself

Welcome back! Congrats to your Eagle Scout, my son is also an Eagle. Sorry to hear about your work situation, hope there is some relief coming soon. :tiphat: Thank you. Yeah, being out of work sucks, but it's also not all bad. I'm still more fortunate than many. I've been able to spend a lot of tim...

Re: Introduce yourself

Hello all. I guess this is more of a reintroduction. I am a long time member who joined the forum within a day of going live, but have been inactive for several years. Boy has this forum grown. Glad to see it's been so prosperous. Lost interest in shooting for a while but again have the bug. 48 Male...

Re: Introduce yourself

Saying hello again. I've been away for about 5 years. I'll be applying for a CHL again in the next few weeks. I originally joined this forum on the first day it was open and I'm thrilled to see it still around and so many people still here. Age: 33 Corprate Security ( Not a Mall Ninja!!! ) :P Marrie...

Next generation of shooters

I'm sure many of you are like me and have at least tried to pass shooting on to our kids. My 10 year old son loves to shoot. He has his own single shot .22 rifle, I bought a 1911-.22 for us both to enjoy, this august he got to shoot my .45 1911, and he has shot a few .22 versions of AR's, and a Sig ...

Re: AR-15 trigger and hammer spring tweak

Did my AR like that back right after I put it together. It's so good I decided there was no point in spending any money on an aftermarket unit. I'm thinking the same thing. :iagree: Have to agree. A friend has been doing his AR triggers like that for many year and recently did mine. It works well e...

Re: Gun Safety Rules

I've been away from this forum for a few years and even though I had replied when this was originally posted it's good to see it and be reminded. I'll be printing this out for my son and daughter to read. My son has shown great awareness with firearms safety. I've been drilling it into him since he ...

Re: Introduce yourself

I guess this is more of a reintroduction. Just wanting to say hello. It's been quite a while since I've been active on this forum. I've since had to let my CHL lapse and am hoping to acquire a new one after the first of the year. I've recently gotten back into shooting after a hiatus. I'm looking fo...

Wow. Sure has grown from the 10 or 15 members when I joined. Don't think I'll give anyone a run for post count.
