Looking for a good gun Smith(s)

Any good recommendations on a good gunsmith I could send a couple of guns to?
I'm looking for a smith that knows how to install a FITTED bar-sto barrel on a beretta 92 and a glock, and do a trigger job as well.
Doesn't have to be just one gunsmith. If you have any recommendations, please let me know!

How about our favorite moderator, George Stringer? I don't know how backed up he is, but it should be worth an e-mail.

Thanks guys!

I'm going to have Ernest Langdon of Langdon Tactical Technologies work on the Beretta as I've heard that he does high quality he'll also install a special bar-sto barrel that he specs out. With all the extra stuff I requested for, he even gave me a really great discounted price!

I'm most definitely going to follow up on all of your suggestions for gunsmiths to tune up my glock, and maybe a couple other guns. I figure that I have 11 I can either keep buying guns, or tweak up the ones I currently have, which I think is a better idea because I already have way more guns than I actually shoot on a regular basis.

Thanks again for all the help!

Jay: George put AO sights on my Kimber Compact and did a wonderful job! I would at least ask him first.
