W. F. Vickery:
W. F. Vickery first began experimenting with gunsmithing when hunting friends asked him to make repairs and alterations to their guns. His love for guns, only preceded by his love for the tools that make them, forced him to abandon all other work for the profession and craft of gunsmithing. During his lifetime, Vickery lived in Boise, Idaho.
