    I am going to send out the Texas 9 to have it bobtailed and some new sights put on. Who would you recommend. SA's custom shop wants $225 just for the bobtial.

    Doubt you will find a BETTER shop that does quality work for less.
    A blotched bobtail job looks like crap.

    Thanks for the heads up 98LE. I see that he is in Kemp which is not to terribly far from me so I think I am going to go with that guy.

    I don't think you're going to find a quality shop doing it much cheaper than that, maybe a little. You don't want poor workmanship though.

    I need to post some pics of my 'daily driver'.
    A beat to **** '74 Chevy 4x4.

    Know the difference between a pizza and a pistolsmith?




    A pizza can feed a family of four.
