Marshal Halloway and I filmed Monday and Tuesday for DRTV. Monday, we filmed with our friends from Burris, going through the product line (you can hear all about it on today's podcast, along with a really cool song from Batmobile, the greatest Dutch psychobilly group in history). This is after 2 days of building our parrots' outdoor flight cage, which they absolutely love. Two days working with fencing, gloves or not, means my hands look like I stuffed them into a disposal unit.
Tuesday we covered a bunch of stuff for DRTV, included my work-in-process Browning BLR .223 takedown and...pause for effect...our first giveaway gun in a long time on DRTV! We had to work out the details of giveaways withOC's new management, but now we're good to go. I don't know when I can announce the rifle we're giving away, but, if you'd like a hint, you can spell it R*U*G*E*R & J*P*R*I*F*L*E*S & B*U*R*R*I*S & W*I*L*D*E*R*N*E*S*S*T*A*C*T*I*C*A*L...you didn't hear it here! But remember, DRTV Forum members get entered twice!
Got a bunch of new guns to pick up next week...you guys will be excited.
I was going to be sneaky and use a J.P. 9mm carbine at Crimson Trace next month...unfortunately, CT issued a rules clarification that specifically prohibited pistol caliber carbines...sigh. I'm going to use the Daniel Defense carbine I used last year with a Burris MTAC 1-4X illuminated. Same Versa Max and Ruger SR9, which I am considering cleaning before the match.
I've been working with my Sweetie and her brother to get them ready for their Project Appleseed event in a month or so. She'd going to use my .22 Spike's/JP AR that I used to get my Rifleman patch (unless, of course, her very own .22 AR materializes...quiet! Tell no one!). It's been fun! Marshal and I have been putting together the details of filming an Internet documentary on Project Appleseed for both DRTV and another major Internet site you'd recognize in a heartbeat. We want to roll the cameras before the end of the summer.
