About Us

I am an avid shooter 73 years of age. Been shooting and collecting guns since 1967. I was fortunate to have stumbled into knowing the mentor that I had. He was in something like USAMU during his Army days. His enthusiasm for shooting was infectious, and in a short time I got involved and we became like brothers.

His involvement with shooting was global in proportions. The people he knew were amazing. Competitors, Gun Writers, and Innovators. He sponsored me to Santiago Rifle & Revolver Club. The president of the club was Mid Tompkins (National Center Fire Champion). I met people that owned Gunsmithing businesses. And before I knew it, was invited to come shoot skeet at the (then new) Winchester Skeet Range in Laguna Hills CA by a fellow who later became the SW United States Winchester Rep.

Being mechanically competent, I do a fair amount of small gunsmithing jobs. A member of the Skeet Club who is a competition shooter suggested that I just swap out the sear spring, which I did, and what a pleasant change that made. My scores went up. Trouble was the availability of those lighter weight springs. So the story ends with me having some manufactured. My experience and quest for a light pull sear spring brings them to you.

Since that time I have done a lot of pistol, rifle shooting, but about 7 years ago got interested in Skeet shooting again. I bought a Stoeger Condor 12ga O/U and built an American Skeet Range on my acreage in Newport North Carolina. My love affair with the Condor O/U ended with the safety being activated every time the gun was opened. My daughter owns the only Pawn shop in Morehead City, and gave me a beautiful old Remington 1100 Premier. I found the Remington fit me perfectly and shot well with it. In the past 6 years I have collected eleven Remington 1100 shotguns. All of which had pretty hefty trigger pulls. Now with these new springs they are both beautiful and great to shoot.
