He had their guns for weeks at a time without responding to any messages and had to be 'bothered' by the client for his services? The way I see it he is just taking advantage of people who don't know any better, the exact same way someone took advantage of me when I bought a used gun in Ottawa, tossing shit parts in there and telling me to go to a gundoc to fix them when the crappy parts failed...
Now that I actually know how to fix up guns myself I would never trust you 'gundocs' who are just looking to make a buck off people, instead of actually fixing up a gun & helping out a fellow player. With a gun taking an evening to take apart and swap brand new parts into, I see NO reason why he couldn't do this in a week, as I think he is no likely undertaking 50 guns before Christmas.
really? have you even read the OPs post and all the responses?
the OP knew it would take 2+ months, why else would he tell the gun doc about his vacation when he gave them his guns. texting some one saying "haven't heard anything in 2 weeks any update" when you know he hasn't even looked at it is a dick move.
if you have the skills to do it yourself, awesome, but don't bitch about the way gun docs do work. you may have one gun to work on and you are willing to sit down and burn threw it in an evening, but a gun doc can have more than 10 guns at a time, and still have a life to live.
are you implying gun docs should sacrifice their time and not charge people for it? saying they are trying to just make a quick buck is retarded, because 1) they sacrifice their free time, time they could use to enjoy life, to help others who can't/wont work on their own guns
2) there is nothing quick about working on guns
most reputable gun docs are players first and do gun work on the side, they will put down their gun in a game to get yours up, so the game can go on.
its people like the OP and you who come at it with the wrong attitude, that make gun docs want to get out of that line of work.
