Help in Golden, CO
Thank You for allowing me to join your group, We live in Lantana, TX, a suburb of the DFW metromess, and vacation in a condo in Winter Park.

The reason I am here:

I sent a HiPower to Michael J Tulowitzki, know as MJ Yulo Gunmakers in April of last year for color case hardening and some other work. He estimated 6 weeks time, and in May I paid for his services. Starting in September, I have been repeatedly promised that the gun would be shipped back to me, next week, in a few days, Wednesday, and On January 9th, MJ promised to ship it "tomorrow" saying that it was packed and ready to go!

Since that Tuesday, January 9th, I have not received my pistol, nor have I been able to get a return phone call, a return text, or a return email. No contact from MJ at all!

Does anyone live near, or work near Golden, and could they go by his shop and see if there's any sign or indication as to why I can't get any response. He also has not posted to his facebook page since November.

Thank You for any help, or information.

Can't help you in-person (as I moved back from CO to TX temporarily) but were I you, I'd consider taking more serious action, especially if he isn't getting back to you as you may never get your gun back otherwise (let alone what you paid to have done on it). And IMO, someone who has my property but no longer is authorized to have it -- that's theft.

Are you prepared to play hardball if need be? Meaning, things like:

-- submit a formal complaint to the Colorado BBB on this guy
-- submit a formal complaint to the Colorado Attorney General's Office
-- if that fails to get results, take him to JP/Small Claims Court?

...not to mention all the "negative adverting" he'll get in forums like this one -- I know *I* wouldn't do business with "MJ Tulo Gunmakers" after hearing your story!

NOTE: This forum is REALLY "slow" -- hardly anyone posts or even reads here anymore (and for years now). I just happened to see your message, but there are only a handful (maybe less!) of people who MIGHT see your message. Still, I hope someone can help you.

I guess at worst, you could hire a (reputable) Private Detective in Golden to check out what's up with this guy and/or if he's still in business...if you can afford more expense. I mean, he has your gun ($$$) and what you paid him to do on it ($$$) and on top of that, you may need a detective's help ($$$). You could be in the hole (loss) for $$$$.

I HOPE someone here can check on him in-person. I'd do it for you were I still there (lived in COS) -- as I've gone to Golden on occasion -- but can't do that now. Maybe someone else here can.

If not, I'd be looking up Private Detectives in the Golden area...check their reviews/ratings first, don't choose another "Michael J Tulowitzki" for help! ;-)

BTW, if you NEVER get your gun back, report the gun's Serial Number to the Golden Police, telling them you don't know WHO has it but YOU don't anymore! You want to CYA in case your gun is used for something "unauthorized" (!) and as well, let the cops know your gun may be "at risk" somewhere out there on the street. Also, with the SN they can see if the gun turns up in a pawn shop or whatever (but I hope not).

Good luck...

He got help through another path, and everything turned out OK.

When seconds count, the police are mere minutes away...
They'll never take your "hunting rifle", they'll call it a "sniper rifle" first.
Gun registration is gun confiscation in slow motion.
Zero failures comes at infinite cost.
You are the FIRST responder. Police, fire and medical are SECOND responders.
By eliminating fear of guns you'll put fear back in criminals.
