The last two days have been crazy.  We received 18 inches of rain!  2 out of 3 interstates were closed in the city.  Houses were destroyed, and many lives were forever changed by the flood of 2010.

I want to thank you for your support and prayers during these times.  Our shop, home and family are all safe, as are any items we have in our possession right now for custom work.  The only casualty of this mess was my cell phone.  Please email me if you need anything.

We will be behind on work for about 3-4 days.  It is not because we were directly affected by the water, but there is literally no where to go.  Our private use range is not reachable, our public range is closed and the indoor ranges were not reachable because of flooding.  We have tried to contact all of you to let you know this in person, but obviously that is a large task.  If you ordered anything through the website, please be patient.  Everything was shipped out at the end of last week.  If you have not received your stuff by Friday, please let me know.  We will get you squared away.

A final thought; As I was helping a neighbor get his house dry, I was reminded about how temporary all of these things are.  It doesn’t seem like it sometimes because we work so hard for the things we have, therefore we place great value on them.  The truth of it is that it can all be gone in the morning.  What will last through eternity are relationships.  “Don’t store up treasure on earth where moth and rust (and water) destroy, but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven.”  The italics are mine, but it seems appropriate tonight.

For now we are grateful for the relationships we have with our family, neighbors, and you our customers.  Thanks for helping us do what is so fun for all of us.  We will continue to do a little underwater gunsmithing until the water recedes.
