    I went to order a trade gun this afternoon, and the website says that they are no longer taking orders as of Aug 16. I snoozed and I loozed.

    Yep. The story is, Matt is in pretty poor health. It is taking him much longer to get things done in the shop. There are so many orders stacked up, he figured it is only fair to not take orders until we can catch up, and then may resume taking orders next spring. Hopefully someone will buy the company and keep it going, as it has been a mainstay in muzzleloaders since I started shooting them over forty years ago, and Curly Gostomski was running it.
    So saying, I may find my self out of steady work by the end of winter. I’ll be taking on orders for custom work building flintlocks, so I would appreciate people spreading the word.

    Waksupi, it’s a small venue, but feel free to start advertising here to your heart’s content. I’ll also pass the word as I can. That’s the best I can do.

    Waksupi, I just e-mailed you my thoughts for a fancy English Fowler. You can consider this your first order.

    Got it, Charlie.
