I think the lever show is going to come out pretty cool...everything just fell together. Here's J.B. Custom's ad ont he Chiappa Mare's Leg:
My goal is to get a .44 Magnum take-down version from Chiappa, then do the SPR routine with it. I like the Chiappa take-down system...unscrew the magazine tube; turn the barrel assembly 90 degrees and, viola! I sort of think the regular take-down M92 clone and an S&W 329 (obviously both in .44 maggie) makes a small, light, hard-hitting travel package for the hunter or paranoid person. I had to pry our loaner M92 take-down from SHOOTING ILLUSTRATED's Dick Williams' hands.
We've also signed on to do SHOOTING GALLERY episodes on the Advanced Armament's silencer shoot and the Order of Edwardian Gunners' World Side-by-Side Championships, as well as a .50 BMG show with Ronnie Barrett and some exclusive training with Todd Jarrett from Blackwater.
Meanwhile, I'm really impressed with the most recent lion story from Colorado:
IDLEDALE, Colo. (AP) — A mountain lion crept through an open door into a house outside Denver, snatched a Labrador retriever from a bedroom where two people were sleeping and left the dog's dead body outside, wildlife managers said Tuesday.Here kitty kitty kitty! Darn things are worse than horseflies! Alf the Wonder Beagle has started working out more, just in case; she wants one of the .410 Bond derringers of her own, but I keep explaining about that opposable thumb thing.
No one else was hurt. Officials didn't know how many other people were in the home about 14 miles southwest of Denver.
Wildlife officials later trapped the 130-pound male cat using the dog's body as bait and fatally shot it.
