Thanks, Eric.  To you too.   

I'm very fortunate to still have my dad to celebrate with.  He is 82 year old, and still shoots, rides his bike, and walks 5k races. 

Hope you all had a great day.

I think if you were going to scrap the items anyway, just put together a few packages of them and put them for sale on here at reasonable prices. 

That way you know that the folks that most value your and your brothers work can get a little bit of your legacy.


(And also, some person with a 3D printer doesn't use it to make something dangerous and illegal in many parts of this country/world.  It seems that a decent barrel is the 'hard' part of a built-from-hardware-store-parts firearm, especially outside the USA.  This would most likely preclude seeing something only identified by a barrel marking or something similar with the company name on it appearing in the media with a less flattering article tying it to you guys.)

The Water Cooler -- General Discussions / Re: Buyers Beware Ebay Rohrbaugh barrel

Well Well. . . . Wheezer fell in the well.  LOL

I don't know that seller. I did reach out, as shown in an above attachment here. I pm'd him through eBay to explain that was not a good barrel for the R9 pistol. He pm'd me back through eBay and he wanted to do the right thing. I believe with eBay, with regards to something like a barrel for a firearm that MAY BE USEABLE in theory, but found to not be a good item, you are allowed to delete the auction and relist it with the proper information. I would think that course of action would be correct in a legal and safety sense; wouldn't you agree? I think he was not sure of what he had and listed it as he felt was true and correct.
No malice was there from my correspondence with the man.

Now, ". . . With that said" (and I despise that saying), I do actually have some old parts, barrels included, that I was going to just scrap, but I was thinking of putting those items on eBay with extremely low starting bids for our collectors out there. What are your thoughts? Would anybody have an interest in early "setup pieces" for the mantel or "Man Cave"?  Ha haa . . . .

Best Regards to All,

Eric R.

The amounts collected should put a very nice guilt trip on Tech Guy to keep us going for the foreseeable future. 

Thanks, all!
