    I am wondering if anyone has experience with the hobby gunsmithnig course offered by mail and if there is a good sourse for gunsmithing tools
    Any help would be appreciated

    Many of the "mail" gunsmithing courses are...well...fair at best. Some of the books and videos are decent while others give you just enough info to get you lost mid stream. Careful...mostly they want your money. It would be best to try and become an apprentice or a part time "helper" for your local gunsmith. Factory offered "armourer" courses are good but way expensive (usually). Brownells has 99% of what ever you need in tools and supplies.

  5. Wayne, Your address brings back some memories. I was stationed at Rob't Gray Army Airfield when I was in the army (many moons ago). At the time, Copperas Cove consisted pretty much of a bowling alley (about 8 or 10 lanes I think), and a drive-in coffee shop next door run by a retired NCO, who's name I don't remember. That was 1966, and I'll bet it's changed a bunch!

  7. Wow:eek: , When I was there, there wsn't anything in either direction from the field till you got to the Cove or to Ft. Hood down hwy 190(?). Course that's been a year or two back. I'm surprised they're using Gray for commercial flights, given it's reason for being at the time. Darn near got run over by a C-141 driving the follow-me truck one night on the taxiway!
