    Good gunsmith around Tampa?

    I've done a Google search and found some but was also looking for recommendations from fellow members on one.. Right now, I need a safety mod but may need more work in the future. Having a good gunsmith locally would be helpful.

    Thanks for any advice.

    The only one's I know of is SPA Shooters on Hillsborough, Jake's Gunshop on Waters Ave., and Shoot Straight near I-4 & 301. Haven't used either and I'm sure there's more.

    Google search shows a lot more though. Of the above, Jake's seems pretty old school, cramped, dirty setup. SPA is cleaner, a little bigger and has a decent retail setup too. Shoot Straight does it all, huge store, range, and large smithing area.

    These are just casual observations, so I'd try to get firsthand knowledge from someone that's had work done.

    A word of caution about Shoot Straight. I've dealt with the two original shops (Apopka and Casselberry - Orlando area) and the owner instructs his gunsmiths to work on Kalib's (the owner) friends guns first and push everyone else to the side. Where you are in the stacking order doesn't matter. I wanted a recoil pad ground to my son's rifle's specs and after 7 weeks I told them never mind and did it myself. This is a common occurance. Each of those seven weeks I was told, "sorry, but the owner gave me other priority projects." The gunsmith then told me what the owner was doing.
