I'm cooking Italian tonight, since we haven't had pasta in, honestly, a year. I thought spinach lasagna sounded good. Nothing too elaborate, but something that goes well with Ravenswood Old Vine Zinfindel. One of the best wine-tastings I've ever had was the old vine vintages at Ravenswood, and I love it with marinara sauce.
My Sweetie and I got out to shoot a cowboy match on Saturday, and Boy Howdie, was it fun! I'd forgotten how much I love to shoot cowboy. I was shooting an 1866 Taylor's Uberti Carbine rebuilt to .44 Russian, and I used Russians in my 2 Long Hunter Blackhawks until I ran out it and fell back on some .44 Specials I luckily had with me. I tanked the last stage and ended up 7th instead of 4th; my Sweetie came in right behind me at 9th after her tanking the same stage. She only did it to make me feel better...LOL!
BTW, the '66 was redone by a great local gunsmith, Badger, who added the carrier mod to the Uberti carbine. The carbine requires some finesse running it, as opposed to my Ken Griner 1973, which is all about blunt trauma.
You know, I really liked shooting the Russians, big old fat bullet rolling down the barrel. I think I'm going to spend some more time messing around with the cartridge. I did work up some loads with Trail Boss powder and a heavy bullet, but I was thinking of trying Red Dot, which is what I use in my cowboy .357s since the first reloading component crisis back in 2008. I couldn't get Bullseye, TiteGroup or Unique, so I had to figure out what I could get (Red Dot). I've been very happy with it since...light, clean, painless.
BTW, to all the people who hate me and take the time to send threatening emails, you're going to have to try harder. Simply cursing me and then including a list of Snowplow Bloomberg talking points just isn't going to do it. Use your imaginations, people!
Also BTW, IWI tells me that my Tavor is in route...I'm so excited!
