the wife & I have been talking serious & we both agree it is time to close the doors on my business. I made a good living doing what I did almost 16 yrs putting custom finishes on firearms. It's funny I have put camo or moly finishes on guns or gun parts from all the states of our country w\the exception of Hawaii. I even had customers (stocks) from Ireland, Canada too. My customers have ranged from the average hunter, competitive shooters, gun builders, celebrities from music & TV to 28 different law enforcement agencies throughout our country (State & Local). I've been in two outdoor magazines (articles), numerous pod cast interviews & a radio show (few times), met a slew of people whom I've hunted with & became friends over the years from this business. I'll miss dealing with Mossy Oak Camo \ Haas Outdoors, they have been awesome to me. I've been loyal to Mossy Oak Camo processor ever since I started the business & my 3 Pro Staffer's Roger, Scott & Keith were a real asset to me & my business.

I have to think about my health now (my cancer is still in remission, stage 1 low grade) & the chemicals I am around in the shop for the camo process could enhance my cancer to a different level. I'll finish out the month of January what is on the racks in my shop currently & send the rest of the firearms back to the customers. So the end of January is it. I'll work on the farm & get a part time job since Sally & I dont have that much hanging over our heads.

Feb 1st my insurance, alarm service, web site & internet service will be cancelled, turned off & shut down.

Looks like I sold some of my equipment to another camo processing company in the midwest. He's interested in my new camo hydrographic tank & both activator systems.

John go ahead & delete that Camo Solutions page on your forum.

Well I for one hate to see you end it but understand fully why you are doing it. I sure like the fantastic job you did on my turkey gun a few years ago. You are a real professional.

Really am impressed with the gun you did for me Don.  Thanks again.  I hope you and Sally get to travel around and have a great time.
