Dear Shooters,

As many of you know this past year has been a very trying one.  I have not been able to work nearly as much as I wanted to due to an ongoing back injury.  As the end of the year is near and I am recovering from my second major back surgery it is time to make some changes.  My family and I have given this many of hours of prayer and discussion and we have come to the conclusion that I need to close the shop to any new custom builds.  I know that there are a few guys that are still waiting on builds and I can assure you those will be finished as soon as physically possible.  As I continue to recover I will be finishing up all outstanding orders first and then will build a few semi-custom builds as I clear out the inventory I have in the shop.  I am not sure what the future holds for Scout Supply Company right now, but a change must be made. I do know that I never want to be in the type of pain I have dealt with over the last 2-3 years.  I know that many of you have offered thoughts and prayers and for that I am thankful.  This transition is a hard one to make because I have truly enjoyed making rifles for some of the best people I could have ever hoped for.  I just want to say thank you for all of you that gave me the opportunity to help build your dream rifle and I loved receiving pictures of the rifles in service.

Again thank you for prayers and understanding,

Russell Banks
