I didn't even know it ever rained in southern Arizona! It was quick, but it was definitely water. learn something new every day.
Am still out on the Grind Trip, just past the half-way mark. Tomorrow I spend the day with cowboy poet Baxter Black, which I fully expect to be entertaining. Then we concentrate on Old West gunfights, which are cool. Since we were filming a SHOOTING GALLERY on revolvers, I've been carrying a Charter Arms Bulldog .44 Special in a Simply Rugged Sourdough Pancake holster...a great little holster for all-day carry fo a nasty little gun...sort of the blunt trauma equivalent of a pocket pistol.
I wish I could talk Ruger into making a .44 Special SP-101...I know there are custom versions, but they are hella-pricey...I do have to say that the 4-inch Redhawk .44 Magnum is a world-class blaster. I love this gun...I've probably put more than 2000 rounds through it — mostly .44 Specials, but hey. It's a tack-driver, especially with the Black Hills 210-grain cowboy .44 Specials loads. The Redhawk has quickly become my favorite .44...I can't recommend this gun enough. I wish it was about 8 ounces lighter, but hey, if wishes was fishes...
