    I thought I felt a disturbance in the Force.

    It was as if a perfectly good barrel screamed out in horror, and was then suddenly silent.

    There oughta be a law...

    That's for certain.

    That picture's gonna haunt me, I just know it. I'm gonna have nightmares about some Bubba porting my revolvers.

    I think it was Mas Ayoob who once said, "Give a man a dremel, and he'll convert a perfectly good gun into a pile of shavings."

    My sense exactly. Nothing like a no-nothing to do a "gunsmithing project"

    Note the even spacing of the cuts. Note the even width of the cuts. Note the lack of any tool marks on the barrel where the tool "walked" all over it, the mark of an idiot neophyte. Middle cut appears to be >50% of the barrel circumference. These are all signs of a fine, quality, long lasting job. I will rush ALL my guns to this dude for "modification".
