  1. Had it done a few years ago. Was getting bad in the right hand/arm. Surgery took 5 minutes. Was awake....yet had some good drugs so I didn't feel a thing. Was getting a lot of numbness and tingling before. No pain. They say if there's pain, you may have waited too long and damaged the nerves. Haven't had any problems since. Have minor issues with the left, but not bad enough for surgery. Went back to work the next day with a small bandage and brace. Recovery did not take long. Have no long term effects. Symptoms never returned.

    About a one inch incision and a couple stitches. 

    Hope this helps.....Diego

    Small world , I worked for Bob in the late 80’s early 90’s . It was a great experience. I knew about Bobs passing . One of the guys I went to school with started working at PISCO shortly after I did and never left . He owns it now . They moved PISCO to Oregon.

    I worked as a gunsmith for about 10 years before I decided I wanted to move on to a more lucrative career. Although I still enjoy tinkering. I’m just starting the CAS thing . Just got 2 Pietta’s it will be like 1st semester all over again.

    Did you know Bob Chavez , Lee Forsberg , Gary Boyd ? 
    I only met Gene Kelly once when they had just started AGI , he seemed like a ok guy 

    Are you talking about Ken Brooks???  I would have met him at SHOT.  That's the last time I saw Bob, a few years ago at SHOT.  I think Lee Forsberg was just coming on when I was leaving. The other two sound familiar, but not sure I ever met them.  Darrel Holland was in school when I was there also. He did some of AGI's videos. Darrel was from San Diego as I am also originally.  Left CA in 98...….and so happy where I'm at now.....and welcome to SASS. You need to join up and get yourself an alias!!!!!  Take care.....Diego

  3. RMW.....I too worked for Bob!!!! Was at Lassen 77-80. Worked for Bob my last year. Gene Kelley is the student that started AGI. Was in school with him also. Sad news I found out a couple weeks ago, Bob passed in December...……Bob was the best smith I've ever known. I really started learning when I started working for him in the mornings and class in the afternoon. School gives you the basics.....you really start learning when applying those skills at a real job.
