from Gary Howes
Guns and Gunsmiths Editor
Since Inception in 2013
Well friends, I have finally decided to hang up my spurs, lock the doors and retire from business. I was asked by AGI President Gene Kelly to start this blog way back in June of 2013 and it has exceeded my expectations. Along the way I have made many friends, although I have actually met few of them in person. That’s the internet for you! But now it’s time for me to saddle up my horse and ride into the sunset.
What does this mean for Guns and Gunsmiths?
To be honest, I just don’t know–that is a decision that the folks at AGI will have to make. If you want to see it stick around I suggest you get in contact with them and let them know how much you enjoy this blog.
What About GunsmithUSA.com?
GunsmithUSA.com, the Free Online Directory for Gunsmiths will continue on. It is my own website and has no affiliation with AGI or GCA. I will still accept listings for gunsmiths that want to be included, so if you haven’t done so yet, please do. However I will no longer be offering website design or other graphics services.
Will you ever hear from me again?
Only if you want to. I do have some plans for an exciting new firearms-related website of my own that I know you will all be interested in. However, for me to email you about it when the time is right, I need your permission as I will no longer have any access to the Guns and Gunsmiths mailing list.
So, if you would like to be added to my own mailing list and be among the first to hear of my plans, CLICK HERE to be added to that list. Then keep an eye out in the near future for the news I want to share with you.
Cheerio friends and colleagues. Believe me, it has been an absolute pleasure being your editor, tech support guru, friend, administrator, mechanic and chief bottle washer.
