I'm happy to help. Something I forgot to mention.....January 23-25 is the Firearms Engravers/ Custom Gunmaker Exhibition at the Silver Legacy in Reno. Members from each guild display their best work. It's a great chance to meet and talk with some of the most incredible artists and craftsmen in the country. Each guild also holds free seminars on Monday morning that are open to anyone. The engravers will also have a critiquing session where the best of the best will judge your work and offer tips and techniques to help you improve. These guys are the reason I'm able to do this for a living.
I'll post more about the show as it gets closer.
