Annnndddd I'm closed...

Or at least I'm not accepting public repair jobs.

It was fun at first, but in this area no one has the money for serious guns. Over the last year I've fixed so many ancient, cheap-ass, piece-of-shit Savage and Stevens rifles I should charge Savage for being a warranty station. I'm only doing custom AR builds and 1911 pistols for now, to keep my FFL going. But I'm moving my house and shop to the Dallas area where the customers won't need to make weekly payments on a $50 repair bill, or try and haggle me down on prices.

Once down there we'll add the engraving business and cerakoting, but for now I'm getting my house ready to sell and getting the hell out of here.

We're Opening Soon...

Wow, I can see why people don't want to start a business these days. On top of all the shop construction and all, you have to jump through hoops for a bunch of gummint agencies, none of which want the exactly same info, use the same forms, will get the info from each other, or have heard of this thing call "e-mail" and insist on fax or snail mail.

In any case, we'll be open on May 2nd, and you can see the new website at

We Made It

Sorry to be silent so long. The move was pretty nuts, and we're just getting to the point where we can move through the house without tripping over boxes.

The best news is...  [drumroll]

Behold the future home of my gunsmithing business!
Hyde Gunsmithing (future)

Right now, it needs a lot of work. The walls are horrible and there are no interior walls, but I'm getting a hell of a break on the rent for 2 months, and the full rent is damn cheap. I move in on December 1. I can't wait to get started.

The most important thing is that this shop is in downtown Booneville, which means it has foot traffic, and is easy to find. My place out here in the sticks is way too far off the beaten path.

More pictures when they become available.

Please Stand By

We interrupt this broadcast to move to our Ranchito in Arkansas. Transmissions will recommence when we get the office and gunshop/workshop set up again.

Hasta Lasagna,
Michael and Tish

Time = Money

Which would you rather have; a giant house and stuff that you spend your life to pay off, or a simple house with your loved ones and time to spend together? I can tell you which answer your credit card company wants you to choose.

My 9/11 Remembrance

 To honor the heroes and victims of 9/11 I'm going to eat pork, drink alcohol, look at pictures of nude women who aren't my wife (and yet still treat my wife like my equal and partner), and make fun of Allah. I may, if I'm feeling especially patriotic, French-kiss a man. In short, I'm doing everything that Al-Qaida hates. Let's Roll...

2:30PM  Eating pork rolls and worshipping Fat Buddha! Take that, Al-Qaida!!!

Update to Freedom

We're about 37 days out from moving back to Arkansas, and not a minute too soon. One of our friends who watches our place found a black suitcase hidden under one of our trees next to the road. Turns out it was a portable meth lab kit. Fuckers.

The cops were called and their hazmat guy took it away, but we need to get home soon before the tweakers decide my living room is a great place to set up a factory.

God damn to hell whomever invented meth.
