    Default Recoil pad install - Columbia area

    I don't know if Hussein is still doing work, so I thought I'd throw this out there. My brother has a Ruger #1 he wants to put a KickEez pad on. I won't touch it - I don't like the tedium of it, and I hate working with soft pads. Anybody know a 'smith in the Columbia area they'd trust to do this?

    Aiken area is another option, as he lives near the Gilbert/Batesburg area.

    Can't help you with a gunsmith, but a trick to working with a soft pad like that is to freeze it at least overnight and take it out right before sanding it down. It makes a big difference in stopping the spalling..

    If a man is alone in the woods, says something, and a woman does not hear, is he still wrong?

    This. But I thought they were in Swansea. Not open on Fridays as they are usually out testing their work.
