Watching the John Wayne original so I have a comparison when I see the new one this weekend...am I the only one who had untoward fantasies about Kim Darby? I met her years later and told her something similar, and her response was something to the effect of, "You and all the other little nerd boys..." mMaybe she said "pathetic" nerd boys...
My Colt Rail Gun is in! I pick it up tomorrow, and if this whacky weather holds I'll get to shoot it Christmas weekend. I'm to have to exercise some restraint over the 100th Anniversary Year, lest I end up with more 1911s than any sane person should have. I wish I had the spare bucks for the Wilson Combat or the incredible Cylinder & Slide recreation...I've been getting bulletins from Bill Laughridge at C&S on thus project, and these 100 guns will be serious heirlooms! I was so impressed thatvwe're going to document the C&S 1911 on DRTV.
The Firearm Blog and lots of other places are reporting on Sig Sauer's introduction of a .50 BMG bolt gun. I'm pulling some strings to see if we can get a DRTV test really soon. BTW, the guys at Burris mentioned today they'd have some high speed, military-grade long range optics to show me at SHOT. Looking forward to it, as I am shopping for a scope for my Barrett.
BTW, I will be carefully following Dr.'s orders on the eye surgery...he's already axed me jumping on the plane the next day and going to Arizona. Maybe not the best plan, now that I think about it. When they did my right eye they wouldn't let me shoot for 2 weeks, since that would be the medical definition of "eye-strain."
And Frank James...you mean there actually are TWO RMR-30s!?!?!?!?
