I can't help you with your region, but I"ll tell you this from experience.

Do not settle for less-than-best work just because the guy is local.

I got my Colt bobtailed by a local metal hack. I thought, "Lots of guys do it themselves, how hard can it be?" Well this guy butchered my 1911. It's not a collectible or anything, but now it's worth even less. I should have shipped it to a top national 1911 gunsmith, waited the X weeks, and paid a little more. Then I wouldn't have a boogered 1911. Painful lesson.
