You Will Notice...


...that I failed to do anything on the blog that I said I would do yesterday. I was in the studio forever working on the prototype weekly video blog...I know it'll get easier once we figure out what we're doing. The audio podcast was the same way...Marshal and I thrashed around for a month or so before the format jelled. Still, the thought of another weekly commitment, especially a video one, is daunting. On the funny side, I told my Maximum Overlords that I would need Mondays to put together the audio and video podcasts, so I would not be available to travel until Tuesday AM. No problemo, they said...and you need to be in Tulsa next Monday...sigh...

Had a long telephone meeting late yesterday evening with Larry Potterfield (who got his elephant in Africa, in addition to the Baldridge Award for quality, last month) about GUN STORIES, one of our new series that Larry will be hosting. The plan at this point is for Stephen Hunter (and you have purchased I, SNIPER, haven't you?) to join us as our chief analyst. The series is starting to come together (I hope)...best case would be a 3rd Quarter 2010 premiere.

Finally, an apology...for deep-seated psychological reasons I don't fully understand, I keep referring to the new Ruger GP-100 .327 as an SP-101. It is possibly a case of residual brain damage from my checkered past, or a malfunctioning chip in my volatile RAM array, or the fact that because of the ravages of man-caused global warming I can no longer remember a time when the outside temperature was above freezing. Or it could be cosmic rays...in any case, my Sweetie went to Ace Hardware and got a shock collar, sized medium, so I anticipate this problem will be — ARGH ACK SIZZLE!!! — short-lived!

In the meantime, you can watch the "leaked" YouTube SHOT Show video on the Bushmaster...er, Remington Masada...er ACR carbine...

It is a Remington, so it is reliable....right? Didn't they bring me my Remington 597, which is a mess? They must have, I just said the name. Then again, there is the 700, 870....ect. I am really excited to see the new design.
