Howdy from Arizona
« on: November 09, 2022, 03:48:55 PM »
Howdy, my name is Phill and my user name is Arizona Six Gun.
I am a retired aerospace CNC machinist. I have been a single action gunsmith since 1978 with my on-the-side business, Arizona Six Guns, and retired from that also (with the exception of my own guns).
After getting out of the Navy in 1974, I became an actor/stuntman in the Phoenix, AZ valley, working Old West tourist attractions.
I did some stand-in work for local commercials and as an extra in “The Sacketts” , I give all that up in 1987. For the next 30 years, I kept my nose to the grindstone in the aerospace industry.

You are most very welcome here! I've spent the last 40+ in the aviation industry as an A&P/IA mechanic.

It always amazed me how many pounds that just paint would add to an aircraft.

I don't know about airplanes but VW Beetles in the 60's had nine pounds of paint on them.
