Being a youngster of 22yrs old and with a wife & newborn I couldn't afford to go that route and opted for a $119 kit gun(2 of us did this). Bill never looked down his nose at us and only remarked that with a kit gun we'd be correcting mistakes as much as building a gun, but he understood our situation. He brought pictures of what a PA long rifle was supposed to look like and helped us rework our stocks, triggers, brown the barrels, etc. until he was satisfied that we'd done our best. Bill also took the time to spend a couple hours talking to Whistle Pig about gunsmithing the year before he headed out to COAGS. He gave Seth some of his own books to keep. Bill loved military rifles and had some plain but perfect condition bolt action WW1 & WWII guns displayed in his home. He was quiet and a highly skilled Craftsman. May God welcome this War Vet home.
