    Hey Dave, I've been meaning to stop by Hank's shop and talk to him. I'll let you know when I do because he is in a incredibly convenient area for me.

    Thanks for the look out!! I will only be home for a short time and wont have a lot of time to just driving around.... Do you know anybody else, the more options the better?

    Thanks again.

    There is also a guy named Robert Butell (sp) in Bee Caves at a place called Sportsman's Finest I think. He has a really long waiting list though.

    Here in Houston my vote would have to go to Eddie Jimenea. He did a trigger job and "fluff and buff" on my Kimber. Made a smooth shooter an outstanding smooth shooter. :banger:
