Vince left after the owner was being an ass to him, more often than I would put up with. There wasn’t a singular incident that lead to a blow up. I think it was just a cumulative thing over time, and Vince just reached a point to where he had enough.
I just disliked how he went about leaving, though it appeared to be spontaneous. The owner and others were out in Nevada. The owner was abusive to Vince on the phone, so he just up and left without any notice at all. It really put the shop in a difficult spot. If you run a business, I guess it really doesn’t pay to treat your truly talented people like crap. lol At the same time, it probably isn’t good for your future job prospects to quit a job without notice on worldwide television. With his talent though, I don’t think he’ll have a problem at all finding another job gunsmithin’.
lol The Discovery Channel will probably give Vince his own show, or get him to run a shop of his own, and get something like the drama of the American Chopper show going with them having rival gun shops.(that WOULD be some good fun)
As I understand it, in real life Will lost his FFL when he couldn’t account for 10 full autos and Vince had to run the place in the Interim.
The next time I watched Vince is the bad guy and banished.
Ill say this, a good gunsmith will have no problems finding work
These guys have degrees and are artists to boot, then they have a knowledge of history that’s amazing.
they aren’t just wrench monkeys.
>>...and Vince just reached a point to where he had enough...<<
They way Will treats his people says a lot about how little-minded he is. He lacks the temperament for the position he has been lucky enough to find himself in.
I see his management style more often that I would like and I’ve (personally) developed a tolerance/immunity to it. I’ve heard that management style called “Lowering The Fences”. Management keeps “lowering the fences” thru piss-poor people management that the best horses start jumping over for greener pastures — leaving the nags who couldn’t clear the top rail.
Hearing about Vince’s leaving (I haven’t watched in awhile). isn’t surprising at all. Hope he gets his own shop — he seemed to have a decent head on his shoulders.
