...and speaking of swine, I sadly note that Roise O'Donnell — that egregious simpering pile of rancid lard — will join morning show The View, replacing what's-her-name who replaced Katie Couric. That's sad, since The View was one of the few occasionally intelligent things on television while I'm swilling coffee and eating my toast. I suppose we can always hope for spontanious combustion.
I've got to do a walk-thru at the Clear Creek shooting range, about 45 minutes from my house, late this afternoon as a prelude to my renewed membership. I used to be a member, but did most of my shooting on public land. Since that's no longer an option, I'm rejoining the range...I was only on the waiting list for 14 months! Welcome to the new world, Front Range shooters...today's an excellent day to clean up those "littered" shooting areas, since the people who really dump their crap on public land are taking the day off!
I'm gong to take the Detonics mini-.45 over to the range in the hopes of finally getting a couple of hundred rounds in. Speaking of 1911ish things, I really liked Tom Selleck's third rendition of Robert Parker's Jesse Stone series, A Death in Paradise, aired last night. Selleck did a nice job with the gun stuff — all the GUNSITE training certainly shows. Of course he carried a 1911 .45...looked to me like one of the S&W GUNSITE specials.
I'll be spending the rest of the day working on our potential new (and still secret) show from Robin Berg and I...there's a lot of excitement on this one...hopefully I'll be telling you about it in the new few weeks!
Am off to the SIGARMS Academy Thursday for a couple of classes with ace instructor and general bon vivant Bruce Gray. I'm taking a skill-builder class on Friday with my P226 9mm, then the two-day competition class — which we're filming for SHOOTING GALLERY — with a SIGARMS Revolution 1911 .45.
