Lexington KY area Smiths; Are there any?

I ordered a bolt knob for my Remington 700, and would like to get it installed locally. I know I can mail my bolt to Badger for $70 to get it done, but they say it takes two weeks.

It would be nice to find a local guy to do this, not only for this job, but just to know that there's someone local for any other needs that might come up for me (or others that I know). I've called around the local gun stores, and no one seems to be able to make a recommendation which is really hard to believe. It's Kentucky for crying out loud! 30% of the population is armed, and there's no Smiths?

Surely that's not the case..

Go to www.midway.com and look at the Gunsmith Locator (bottom of home page under Knowledge Center). Enter your location and click the GO button.
