I had a great conversation with Gary Keift at Dillon Precision today about (and don't mention a word of this to anybody, I swear!) doing a steampunk match...I mean, why not? Make it .22 LR, costuming required, real action shooting stages...John Carter and I agreed to film such a thing, as long as I get a decent set of goggles...more as it develops...
I'm reading BONESHAKER, a steampunk novel nominated for the SF Nebula Award as best novel of the year. So far, it's very good.
And speaking of critical issues, it turns out that zombies have rights...from Yahoo:
They're said to utter little more than an occasional groan, but zombies -- the blood-drenched monsters of Hollywood "B" movies -- still have a right to free speech, a US court ruled this week.
An appeals court in the northern US city of Minneapolis, Minnesota on Wednesday allowed a group of zombies -- or rather, several protesters costumed as such -- to press ahead with their lawsuit against police who arrested them for disorderly conduct.
The appeals court overturned a lower court in finding that the group of seven "zombies" had been wrongfully detained during a 2006 shopping mall protest against consumerism.Remember, on zoms only headshots count!
I'm really halfway thinking of going from my Blackhawks to replica Taylor S&W Model 3 break-tops in .44 Russian...they're too kool for skool! The break-tops have always fascinated me....they only reason the S&Ws didn't become the "Gun That Won the West" was because they cost so much more than Colt Single Action Armies. Thoughts?
I've also decided to try carrying the Ruger SR9c 9mm for a few months now that I've got a lot of rounds through the gun. Right now, the only holsters I can find for it is the Galco Yaqui Slide...they're nice holsters, but I'm not crazy about slide holsters because of the danger of popping the gun out of the holster when you sit down...not as big an issue with shorter slide guns. I'll let you know how it goes.
BTRW, in case you missed it this AM, here's the USA TODAY cover story on McDonald v. Chicago...the oral argument are next week, and as I mentioned DRTV will be covering them hot and heavy. Check out the absolutely moronic arguments form Brady and the Chicago School District...no wonder we have a President who has no idea what the Constitution says!
