Sacramento Area Gunsmith?

I'm looking for a good smith to do some work on several handguns I use for competition. I live in the Sacramento area of California. Anyone have any recommendations on a quality gunsmith?

I'm wasn't familiar with the name, so I looked him up. If it's the same one that owns greyguns.com, it looks like he's in Oregon.

Bruce would be a darn good one to contact.

Also Randy Lee at Apex Tatical would be a good one to call.
His shop is in CA but I don't recall where.

They have been gone for years.
I heard they got in trouble with the Feds, but that is not confirmed.

The only one I will trust near Sac is Jack Huntington, he is a top quality Smith.
Other than him I travel to Nevada for Smithing I can not do. What ever you do, do not use Gary Thury or J&G.

"What ever you do, do not use Gary Thury or J&G". OCH. They both did acceptable work for me.

I have no idea of the work they are currently turning out, but have seen work from a few years past and it was very bad, almost completely ruined a freinds rifle.
Also their prices are way high.
I will buy items from J&G and they are nice guys but I will not let them work on my weapons.
I have spoke with gary a number of times and he was never pleasant.
