    I'm a gunsmith located in Medford, Oregon and have been making my living doing this for 31 years. I originally worked on anything that would go bang, but for the last 5 years or so I primarily stick to rifles.
    I've shot competitive since the age of 11 in NRA Smallbore, Highpower, and Trap. I'm Distinguished in Smallbore and Highpower and hold a AAA-27-A class in Trap.
    I served honorably for the Marine Corps as well as shot on a Marine Rifle and Pistol Team.
