300 firearms in there for repairs and custom work. On average EACH firearm takes Scott (Or Myself) 3 hours.
Scott is the only Smith unless I come in to assist. Theres 60 hours in his work week. 20 of those hours are spend talking to customers on the phone and at the counter about the job they are dropping off. On busy days he may end up at the counter all day selling guns or answering questions.
That leaves 40 hours of productive time per week. Then you have administrative stuff like Bank Runs, Balancing the Books, Ordering Parts for firearms hes servicing. Take away 5 more hours.
Lets say he still has 35 hours of bench time each week after all the "wasteful" time is accounted for. At 3 hours per gun on average thats 16 guns a week. Thats 64 guns a month.
There are GENEROUS #'s considering the attention into detail Scott puts into a weapon.
Think about it.
No harm ment , I did think about it. Im glad they have the job security of a backlog. With that type of demand and with the jobless situation there should be folks coming out of the schools to fill some of the void. I know its a small shop and only been in once. Dont know them and wish all the best for them. Seems there is a lack of Smiths in general.
Maybe thats my next career calling! Peace
