Hey Guys -
I was contacted by a group that wants to put the Gunsmithing talent in the spotlight ... or through the grinder - .. either way, there is some interest to put together a high end show for builders that is complete with a judged portion to name a Gun of the Year/Gunsmith of the Year based on a few different categories. They are kinda lookin right in my back yard for a venue. There's a new casino hotel in Deadwood called "The Lodge" that is pretty much a Black Hills Bellagio. It's pretty classy.
If it floats your boat take a peek at the survey. They need to see results before they throw time and money at it. If it really floats your boat pass it on to anyone whom you think might also be interested.
Personally, I think its a novel idea would certainly try to participate. The young lady behind this has some really great ideas that could really breath some fresh air into this little past time of ours.
All the best,
