I wouldn't believe it now, anyway. If he left a secret with you he probably didn't care- somebody else was doing it better by then.

Reaming a choke in a bore is not rocket science even though John thinks it is.
He's having fun holding the bag of candy away from the other kids.  Grin

Not the most adult thing to do.  I got a kick out of Dellets post when he said John dropped a turd in the punch bowl. Good entertainment.  Smiley

Nothing is really Rocket Science Joe if born with common sense and abit of mechanical abilities to go along with it. 
And I am still not got to share it and maybe he passed it onto the gentleman who bought all of his barrel making equipment. To give him the same edge so you might try getting it from him as he is also on this site.

Your bag of candy is imaginary, John.  You play with it.  Grin

John, for humanities sanity. Announce to your adoring public that you shall leave all your secrets in your memoirs. Is that a good idea?

Oh Hell No Joe. 
There won't be anybody who even knows that I had actually existed on this Earth. 
Except those who might have and would now be overly elated that I am now gone and for finally for good.

Tim_s just not true. 
I just recently self cut about 4 inches off and it still goes about half way down my back and I still have plenty on top. I actually have not been to a Barber Shop since about 2008 and I spent the money saved on my shooting needs instead of. If memory serves me right it was $15.00 dollars the last time I went?

A friend, Mark, who owned a well-patronized barber shop back in the '90s suddenly had some upstart competition almost directly across the street.  Back then men's haircuts ranged between $15 and $20, including in Mark's shop.  Then a sign appeared in the competing shop's window, "Men's Haircuts: $5".  But Mark was only temporarily flummoxed.  Soon enough he had his own sign out: "We repair $5 haircuts."  Guess who won that battle.

  Wow, that's crazy! Just lately men's hair cuts have gone up to $12 here in Ransomville.

My Son was a licensed Barber in Idaho. And depending on if a customer wanted a custom haircut it could go well beyond $20.00's. He had a very different cliental than just the regular folks who would come to him. They were pretty much going to back to the Hollywood Haircuts and such and in the Rockabilly group of young men in the area.

Haircuts cost money?  Who'd of thunk?  Just don't tell my wife, she'll start charging me.   Wink

A bit of "thread drift" here.  I do find it interesting that barrel makers are offering this as a "premier" service but that the top shooters don't seem to be trending to the choked barrels.  Has there been anyone who actually tested the choked barrels with an unchoked barrel of the same make and caliber?  That would at least give some kind of indication as to whether or not there was a difference between the two.  I know there are scads of variables that would make this very difficult but has anyone even tried?
