I am not breaking out into the business but will I end up with Vol 2 and every other respected shop book before I can safely work on my own builds and repairs? I am speaking of work on my pistols and no others. I only have a few tools for cleaning up a ramp and the stainless flats of a slide. I think a variety of scraps and files are in the cards for my future. I read the first pages witch includes a brief of the accuracy and refurb\overhaul work included in Vol 2. Mother in Law got me the book. I think she could not care less except to get what I wanted and that it would be useful. Now it's Santa time!
