    Gunsmithing as a retirement career?

    So recent events has gotten me back into "planning mode", which I've found is always fruitful. An idea that I have kicked around on and off was, after retirement from my occupation, training to be a gunsmith and working as such. Knowing myself, there is no way I am going to just sit around in...

    Is scope ring lapping necessary? Opinions?

    Is scope ring lapping recommended for any/all scopes, or is this primarily reserved for high-end optics and 1000 yard rifles? Is it worth the trouble for a 100 yard plinker? Is it possible to lap anodized aluminum rings without ruining them? Your thoughts are greatly appreciated,

    Gunsmithing as a trade

    The other day I was discussing the mechanism of my .22 Colt Peacemaker to my fiance, as she was feeling a bit pensive about using it. I guess resetting the hammer without setting anything off made her nervous. Well, I realized during that conversation that my interest in firearms didn't come...
