I'm still alive and kicking. I've been through some interesting times since I last blogged. I now live back in the Dallas area where I grew up, I no longer have my lathe or mill, and I sold several of my guns including my Ruger AC 556.
However, I've got a nice house with a garage, and plan to start working on the Hi Point drums again soon. I'm also looking into buying a new lathe and mill within the next few months-year. I'm trying to get the drum project back together so I can fund the new tooling, so it would be reasonable to assume ill get moving on the drum assembly on the next week or so.

To everyone of you who kept me in your thoughts and prayers, bought guns from me, or even commented here, thank you from the bottom of my heart. It meant a lot to me to see such support from people I've never met in person. God bless every one of you.

With that said, where were we? Oh, yeah, making a magazine extension. I have a few ideas in the back of my head for this one, so stay tuned.


  1. I am so glad you're back. Lu and I kept you in our hearts and prayers and it does my soul good to see you carrying on again.
    Welcome back, we've missed you.

  2. Metal butcher: I live I your area ( Allen)

  3. Six : I'm really glad to be back. It's taken a lot out of me but I'm here.

  4. Anonymous:
    I'm not sure what your intent is, but normally when you refer to someone as a butcher and their job doesnt consist of cutting meat, it is viewed as an insult. I'm certainly hoping you didn't take time out of your schedule to come on my blog and insult me right off the bat?

  5. I've never written on your blog before, but I've followed for a long time with high interest in the hi point drum magazine. I did keep you in my thoughts and I'm sorry for what you've gone through. I'm looking forward to seeing what ideas you've come up with!

  6. Jefferson,
    Thanks for stopping by!
    It's always good to see that others are interested in my build logs here.

    The Hi Point drum build is still ongoing, but I'm currently waiting on some new tooling so I can build the mags a bit easier.
