    Well, I just wrapped up my planning and booked my hotel for my trip to N.W. Arkansas next week (Monday thru Thursday) to meet with Alex Zimmerman from Guncrafter Industries and with John LaHue at Wilson Combat so I can put some faces to some names. Both guys have been more than willing to meet with me and give me a tour of their facilities. Things have been very hectic around here for me for the last several weeks and I am looking forward to taking a couple days to learn more about these two companies. I will bring a camera and, if possible, get some pictures and post them when I get back home. I am looking forward to the education.....

    Man, I wish I weren't working in Atlanta or I'd try to hook up with you while you were there. You'll like it. Real pretty place. Hopefully you can meet Chris over at Metaloy while you're in Berryville.

    Joe, I will certainly try and do that. If you have Chris's number, could you PM it to me. I usually don't like to show up without calling first.

    Pick me up a souvenir, and not one of those crappy $15 tee-shirts either! I am thinking something in stainless steel with some checkering would be nice. :)

    Hey.....I am staying at the Cresent Hotel in Eurika Springs, AR. It is supposed to be a haunted hotel. Banjos and harmonicas should be the least of my problems....:)Should be an interesting trip all the way around.

    Yeah, once you get into Madison county, you can gain 3 ounces very easily by knocking on the wrong door, can't you Jess? :rofl:

    Here are a couple pictures from Wilson Combat. I am having problems downloading most of the pictures....I am thinking my camera battery went south after my trip to Wilson.
