Greeting, This should have been my first post years ago. I manage a gunsmithing shop with 5 workers; 2 machinists and 3 bench workers. I don't own the shop, but I did help start it in 1995. We specialize in IPSC pistols that are used worldwide. One of my proudest achievements was pistols used in the 1996 IPSC World Shoot in Brazil with 0 malfunctions. Our shop is different from others as we believe in three guiding principles. 1. Reliability 2. Durability 3. Accuracy Other shops specialize mostly in aesthetics. We have several machine tools including a surface grinder, which we use primarily to match the compensator to the slide. We are planning to acquire a CNC mill in order to keep up with demand. I was fortunate enough to work for a firearm manufacturing company which supplies various law enforcement departments and the U.S. military. I was a Quality Engineer and oversaw the testing of pistols. I also worked with design engineers when developing new products. I'm single and hope someday to work for a large corporation.
