1) Shoot morea) Move myself up as a cowboy action shooting competitor.b) Get a grip on long-distance shooting with the .50 BMG (and reloading for the Big .50).c) Take the GUNSITE 250 class again, this time with a compact semiauto.d) Start swaging bullets.e) Take a rifle class with an FAL.f) Finally learn how to fit a 1911 barrel.g) Take a sporting clays seminar so I don't humiliate myself every time I shoot with Larry Potterfield.h) Get an old Ruger .357 Maximum, which I profoundly do not need...but want...2) Make a holster, which I've been assured "any idiot" can do...speaking as a veteran "any idiot," I think it's a crap-shoot.3) Get a new hat...I'm currently thinking a Herbert Johnson "Poet" fedora, also chosen by Indiana Jones and the greatest Dr. Who of them all, Tom Baker.4) Do whatever is necessary to keep my Sweetie happy, because she's a far better person than I deserve and I remain at a complete loss of why she puts up with me.5) Continue to walk the dog religiously.
Went to the range today to sight in my .44 Specials with a new cowboy load...although it's tundra-like out there, I thought we'd go to Cheyenne tomorrow AM to shoot a cowboy match, and I thought it'd be fun to shoot some real guns for a change.
Spent some time with several of the new Rugers as well. We've got videos of the Rugers, and you'll see them on DRTV next week. Am also trying to run down a 4th Gen Glock to play with...I'll be shooting one at the Media Day before SHOT, but I'd like one in advance. My little cherubs and seraphim tell me that the new 4th Gen guns in .40 Short & Weak have solved the persistent problems of failures-to-feed when the guns were fitted with a weapons-mount lights like the Insight or SureFire, which was giving Glock fits in police market.
