I'd go ahead and send it or take it by Wilsons in Berryville. Just my opinion. I stopped by Ross Carters place a couple of weeks ago. They said he doesn't come in til around 11:00 or so. I couldn't wait and talk to him so I don't know if he's taking work again or not.
Yes, Ross is taking on work. He seems to have quite a backlog, but his turnaround time seems somewhat dependent on what type of work you're having done. I do believe he probably doesn't get to the shop until late morning, but he's there till well after normal quitting time. Give him a call & find out for yourself. I'm picking up a revolver next week that I had him install a new fiber optic front sight.
