Default Gunsmith recommendation

I am looking for someone that is adept in glass and/or pillar bedding a rifle stock. Iím to scared to do it myself and there isnít much for gunsmiths in my area. Iím in the Central Valley/Bakersfield area but Iíll travel a few hours for a competent gunsmith.

I appreciate yíalls help, any help you have.

Don't know of he's retired yet but his license is still current.
I have had several people come down to me from Kern county and lament that Leroy was not willing/wanting/able to do their work.
He might just be super busy and they didn't want to wait though...

Last I heard Leroy is only doing very little work for a few people. Basically, he’s retired.
