Great read LDD. Much like with Rick I was fortunate to spend a couple of days with Bruce back in December at the class in Mesa. Did you know he hadn't been back in 10 years?
It was an experience I will never forget.
Very good interview, Bruce is a wellspring of insight.
Overheard at an actual match:
"Tapers! Come on, guys, we need tapers!"
"No, my name's Gonzales."
Great interview LDD!

That ought to be quite a 1911. What kind of time does hand-fitting every part of a custom 1911 take - if you have an idea? I know of some who have been calling for a gunsmith to make a truly custom 1911 with a real Damascus steel slide for magazine articles. Have you thought about whether you would use old school deep bluing or something else? Is your vision in more of a classic style - if you even know yet? I presume function and accuracy would be first concerns. There just aren't too many examples of that kind of work around or able to be produced anymore. What watchmakers, jewelers and gunsmiths were able to do with just hand tools in the past has been amazing. Good fortune to you along the way.

I'm more interested in whats hiding under the paper towel in the first picture.
it looks small. Maybe Bruce is working with Keltec for a 10mm subcompact

I also notice that maybe his extension cord behind him on the wall is a little frayed?
Great interview. Thanks for these interviews LDD, I and everyone really appreciates them.
I think Bruce has been making a classic mistake that is super common among the self employed, myself included. Bruce has been charging too little. If his overall profit margin is only 10% or so, a small price increase would double or triple the profit margin. Often small, moderate cost shops eventually close down because they do not charge enough.

It's nice getting to know Bruce. Thanks, LDD.

LDD, it looks like the end of the interview got cut off... can you check it out?
I tried to edit the post to put the text in.
It was there before and now it's cut off.
Weird. That happened before, I think the software may be limiting the total length of a post?
Here is the rest
Great Job LDD and thanks to both of you.

Another great interview! Thanks to all

Nice work, LDD. I really enjoyed the read. Thank you!
Part III is now up.
Very good interview LDD . Bruce you are one interesting man. I love the three guns you did for me , even if I am one of those 9 months deal . WELL WORTH IT WILL DO SOME MORE.
Wow, he is so humble. One to learn from for sure.
Is your government serving you?
Great interview! I am looking forward to the parts Grayguns is making. Bruce's integrity and character shine through.
Great interview and glad Bruce is resource for Sig.
