My Sweetie is in Denver for a dinner with the girls, so I had a low-key dinner of warmed turkey meatloaf and a reasonably good shiraz from Coppola, shared (not the wine!) by the parrots, Alf the Wonder Beagle and Pokee-San the tailess cat. Tres domestic!
I spent some time at the LGS, Gunsport Colorado, picking up a set of Leupold rings for a rifle I'm having built by Dave Sullivan at Westwind Rifles in Erie, CO. Sorry, no website, but Dave is well known as a champion high-power shooter and a builder of superb long-distance rifles. Dave's cleaning up a .300 Remington Ultra Mag on a Remington 700 Sendero I had, with an old Springfield scope. The rings were too short (mispackaged, strangely enough), but there is something profoundly relaxing about sitting around a small gunsmithy talking guns with an unpretentious expert. Reminded me of the first time my father took me to a gunsmith's shop in Memphis...sort of like a wizard's den that smelled like Hoppes instead of boiled bat wing.
