Folks, it's with a heavy heart that I start this thread. 
Joe Larson (user name "Dilligaf") of LTM Refinishing is here by banned from Optics Talk for his recent behavior.
He has either lied to his customers concerning the status of their property they sent to him in good faith to refinish, or failed to respond to emails or telephone calls all together FOR MONTHS ON END. 
I tried in vain to contact Joe via email and telephone to get this deal worked out. NOTHING!
No responses to the emails and the answering machine is so backed up I couldn't leave a message.     
Anyone who reads this and who maybe considering sending Joe @ L.T.M. their gun for ANY kind of service......DONT DO IT!!
People are STILL using LTM's services and getting burned, as of 14 June 09!
Please, please don't send Joe anything that you may want back!!
This man is operating a business for the sole purpose of stealing customers property!

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

I've just received a private message from a fellow shooter that has recently dealt with LTM Refinishing and he has informed me that 1....Joe Larson is STILL in business, (which I find mind boggling, frankly) and still engaging in his nefarious business practices. 

He receives your gear, gets your money for the work and keeps both. Telephone calls and emails all go unheeded by Mr. Larson. 

This Gentleman's experience mirrors countless other innocent peoples dealings with LTM Refinishing. Hopefully, this man will retrieve his gear. 

Please spread the word on other forums, hunting camps, ranges or wherever you may go that LTM Refinishing is a NO-GO!!

How can Joe Larson still be in business? How is it that the word hasn't spread on every shooting related forum out there? Why hasn't he been totally black-listed by the firearms community? I keep reading reports on other forums where people were actually rooting for him to get his act straightened out so they could send him gear, because "he does good work." Why would anyone in their right frame of mind risk sending him anything, given the many reports out there and ample evidence of so many getting ripped off? Even if he only did it once, that would be enough for me. Either a man has integrity or he doesn't. Why are so many so willing to abandon common sense when it comes to this dude? A man's actions defines who he is. How many times does a man have to lie and steal before he becomes a liar and a thief?


Money can't buy happiness... but it's much more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than on a bicycle.
