IN THE OLDER POSTS I SEE SOME NEAT STUFF BY WAPITIROD BUT NOTHING FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW, WHO IS HE? WAS HE A GUNSMITH? WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM?


"ADAPT OR DIE". I USE ALL CAPS, NOT BECAUSE I AM YELLING, BUT BECAUSE IT IS AN OLD HABIT FROM MY ARMY DAYS, PLUS IT IS EASIER TO TYPE AND READ.

I still hear from him now and and again. He had some health issues that pulled him away from gunsmithing.

Rey, Rod was an excellent gunsmith. He built my custom .475 Linebaugh. It turned out great and has accounted for a half dozen muley bucks and bull elk.

I hope he becomes a regular here again.

Last contact I had with him he was virtually disabled.I hope he is OK.
