Default DIY Guy

This gentleman has been posting (with documentation and pics) many fine projects. They always come out grand. Anyway, I'd like to give a hearty thank you to DIY Guy. These have been wonderful to read / follow and are such a step up from usual internet drivel. For those of you not following, you are missing out. Go back and read them all... immediately!

THANKS DIY Guy!!!

"Do it yourself" doesn't even come close to the quality of work/documentation DIY has posted here.

We are all admirers and very thankful !!!

YES!!!... DIY Guy's threads are some of the most informative and enjoyable that I've had the pleasure to read. The man is a virtual genius and one heck of a gunsmith with nothing more than the common tools he has available. Imagine what kind of work he would do if he was a gunsmith by trade? PHENOMENAL!!!!

Thanks for all the kind words but as I have said, I am only a shadetree gun guy using only what I have on on hand (or make myself). The use of the word "Genius" may be stretching it a bit. Thomas Watson said "If you want to increase your success rate, double your failure rate."

Through failures we learm more than through success. Dont be afraid to fail. Be afraid not to try at all. The joy is in the doing.
