Damn. That is a hell of an opportunity. I would love to help with their Kansas Division.

I have the above average mechanical skills myself but the competitive salary would most likely be a bit shy for me, at least until retirement. At that point I may be a bit old to start working for a new company, though I would really like a career in gunsmiths.

Damn. I used to live in Fl, and could have used this gig when barry crashed the economy.

But I can already do all of that, and my pay is waaaay beyond entry level.
