High Steppes of Eastern Washington
Hard to make a living as a gunsmith at $5 an hours.
Bills still need to be paid and assembling AR15s from parts kits don't pay them.they done got real scarce around here quite some time back.
i know one personally that was in the guild and some of his work was featured on the cover of stuff like Rifle magazine.
he gave it up to go drive a truck in north Dakota for a while, when he come back he went out to the mine.
hate to see talent like that go to waste, but,, money is money.
