And shepherds we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee, and teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.

I was tired of answer some seriously dumb emails (grips for Glock, XDs, M&Ps, etc). I had lost patience for ignorance and it seemed like moving was the thing that helped make that difficult decision easier. I have taken down the website and also my Facebook page. I still hope to be around to see what痴 going on here and other forums though.

As for , he went out of business a pretty good while back. I hated to see it because he was the only grip maker that I would refer people to.

Adam,

Really sorry to hear that you closed down your business! I certainly get how you feel though. I知 still making grips but I知 just making what I feel/want to make and then posting them for sale on some of the forums. Any other way I tried to do it just killed all the joy of it for me. more than likely I知 probably going to slow down even more than I have and try to focus on bladesmithing or something else that still feels fresh.

I hope that with time you will come back to making in one form or another. your work is top notch and early on it drove me to do everything I could to get better as a maker. either way I wish you well and hope you stick around.

I知 going to miss seeing y誕lls great work, but I certainly understand how it is to get burned out on something. All the best in whatever you decide to do!
