Gunsmithing is one of those professions that has kind of fallen to the wayside but is still very essential in this country. Your average gun owner probably doesn’t know much about their firearm beyond its basic operating principles and to a certain extent, you really don’t need to know every single tiny detail about your firearm in order to use it effectively. However, sometimes when things go wrong or you’re looking for a certain level of polish or customization, gunsmiths can swoop in to save your bacon with their knowledge and experience. Today I’ve brought on fellow TFB writers Rusty S and Sam S (no relation) to talk all about their gunsmithing experiences, tips, and stories for all of you to enjoy. For more gunsmithing content, be sure to check out Sam S’s ongoing series the TFB Armorer’s Bench.
