Working....then Shooting....

Worked like crazy on Friday on a new Internet proposal for OC.com/DRTV...big project for 2011...then got up early this AM and shot a cowboy match down in the People's Republic of Boulder. My Sweetie just simply killed me in the match...she's getting better and better and better! Bizarrely, the only thing I shot really well were the Texas Stars.

I was shooting the .44 Special Blackhawks and the 1866 clone in .44 Special...I've still got some work to do on mastering the .44s...I really want to run the .44s as fast as I can run the .357s, but I'm going to have to put some more time into them. That's okay — it's fun.

Am in the market for a good — well, relatively good — 1897 pump for trap shooting...would love a Black Diamond Trap, but not for the prices being bandied around.

what barrel length on that 1897 pump?

Don, Ideally I'd like one of the original 30-inch full chokes, which I'd cut to 28-inches and have threaded for Briley chokes...

DamDoc...Dam, Doc! That 2nd one would be perfect if I hadn't just wrote one of those PAINFUL checks to the IRS! Gotta slide for a month!

THANK YOU, and I will watch Cabelas!
