    Never dealt with anyone like this before. Yesterday I ordered one of his Shadetree front rests. I received an email from him confirming the order and shortly thereafter I received another email telling me that the rest would be sent out on Monday.

    That's a very fast turnaround in it's self but he won't receive a check until probably Thursday. I thought there was some mistake so I sent another email asking if he was sending it out prior to receiving payment. He assured me he was. I am flabbergasted. In my 82 years of life, I have never made a purchase where I would receive a product before the funds were in hand.

    Good old Texan, does business the old way on a handshake so to speak.

    Did the same with me on a Shilen trigger. Placed the order and he sent it out before receiving payment.

    I sincerely hope no one ever stiffs him, but I am sure it has already happened.

    Most folks around these parts just assume everyone to be honest, if your word ain’t no good, well, there you go.

    Well, I’ve been burned. The first time was on shipping on a barrel to a guy in New York State. He needed a shot out, by BR standards, 6mm barrel. I spent the $20.00 for shipping and after 10 years I’m still waiting for the 20 bucks. That was the first time. There have been a few others. Did this break me? No. But I adapted the McDonald mentality. Order, pull up to window 1 to pay and then to window 2 for your order.

    Probably the safest praise to Butch is in a personal message, hard not to sing his praises!

    Sure are. Even for a young guy like me, it's a good example of how things COULD work in this world if we'd be honest with each other.

    Kenny Porter just sent me a die and collets, no questions asked, with an invoice in the box. I just sent him a cashier's check in return, no questions asked.

    Porter is also a Texan. Huh.

    He used to be pretty handy about getting a Shillen barrel to you or a gunsmith. I kinda wish he still could do that. He sent a barrel to my gunsmith and the smith calls and says " Your barrel came today and it as long as a well rope!"

    None better than Butch. He has helped me many times, and I've never met the man.

    Yep

    He helped me pick out the right base. Was very helpful.

    Builds a quality product

    And He shipped my rest about the same time i mailed the check.

    I have done the same. Never got stiffed on this forum.

    Lots of good people here
