    Hello LRH community, this is my first post ever on a forum. Some friends told me I needed to get into the computer age so here it goes. I live in Va and used to build custom cabinetry, I started building guns and knives in the early 90s as a hobby, when I hurt my back in 08 I needed to get out of cabinets and started looking for a way to go fulltime with my hobby. I bought my barrel making equipment in 2010 and went to work rebuilding them to make benchrest quality cut rifle barrels and having succeeded is what I now do. I have teamed up with another friend and we now offer muzzle brakes, bolt knobs, and suppressors all made in house. I enjoy hunting, shooting anything, sniper competitions and my shop friends and family. Look forward to getting to know fellow long range shooters. Take care Shawn

    Do you have a web page or details on your barrels? The barrel supply is short all around so people are always looking.

    Joel I am sure you saw the site sponsor tag below my name right after you posted, anyway I see you are from Harrisburg, I did the big sports show there with a booth a couple years ago, lost my voice by day 2,lots of people but I enjoyed it. I see you are a sponsor also, what do you all do?

    Thanks ED, I was supposed to hunt out your way around Great Falls this year but I drew tags for Utah and Wyoming and had to go there instead but we are going to be to trying for MT this year. I cant wait, a buddy of mine who started as a client has hunted that area for years and has told me good things about it. Thanks again

    Welcome! I had spoke to you at the Harrisburg Sportsman Show in 2012! As I recall, very nice rifles! Best of luck!

    Thanks for the welcome, I met a lot of good folks there, I also have shot the Reade Range sniper match several times because of that show and from there shot in the Mason Dixon Challenge in New Holland.

    Barrelnut I can make you a savage barrel anytime as long as I have the reamer. I don't know if I will ever make any for inventory though. let me know what your looking for and I can give you a timeframe. Thanks
