:D Hi everyone. I am the owner/operator of Howling Wolf Arms in Murray. I am a Gunsmith and Dept. of Energy Advanced Armorer. With the D.O.E. I've had the opprotunity to work with Salt Lake County SWAT, USMC, U.S. Army, Navy SEALS, Navy special boat team, U.S. Secret Service, and the British Royal Marines. So, I can handle anything from hunters to law enforcement weapons and then some. I look forward to being a part of the group and welcome firearm questions. Again it's good to be here with you.

Always nice to know a good gunsmith! Welcome to the forum.

You are a good gunsmith, aren't you? :D
I am shocked at the amount of people burned by gunsmiths here. I haven't read a single positive quote from any one on here. I guess I have my work cut out for me. Thanks for your reply.

Welcome to the group. I have a firend that is with one of the "Teams" right now. Hope to stay in touch and learn from you. Do you have any business cards? I get students asaking for gunsmith numbers and I don't have anyone that I want to send anyone to. If so email me off line. Thanks and be safe.

Welcome to the forum!

The dearth of "good" gunsmiths seems to be endemic across the nation if one is to believe the complaints voiced in the national gun forums. There appears to be a surfeit of "gun plumbers" and a definite lack of skilled craftsmen (and craftswomen) who can consistantly produce high-quality work in a timely manner while adequately communicating with their customers.

What sort of work/firearms do you specialize in?

I agree with you about the poor gunsmith epidemic. I think that is partly because of the mail order courses out there. You come out with a certificate without a single classroom hour. I feel confident knowing I attended one of the 3 top gunsmithing schools in the country, Colorado School of Trades. As far as specialization...bolt action rifles, general pistol work, anything tactical (semi, burst, auto) and customization of all of the above. Unlike a lot of gunsmiths out there I have no problem saying," I really haven't worked on this or that enough to feel comfortable doing that". I also call myself my own worst critic. Nothing leaves my shop until I am satisfied with the work because I am aware that my reputation goes with each gun.
Thanks for your comments

I am VERY glad to know this. I have an old Mauser .243 I inherited from my Grandpa. One of those guns that has an emotional value. Needs some attention but I haven't found anybody to help me...

I WILL be in touch.

Sounds great. I love Mauser rifles. We can get it fixed up the way you want it.
