...at Secret Hidden Bunker II ; about 13 degrees. Which is quantums better than it was last week, when my Sweetie had to deal with 10-below and an off-grid power system that turned itself off (coupled with back-up heat that hadn't been set up to be backup heat. Because she is the smartest person I know, not to mention one of the most stubborn, she stayed outside in the bitter cold and sorted everything out.
As usual, her complete ass of a boyfriend wasn't there to help her out. I'm desperately trying to wrap both SHOOTING GALLERY and THE BEST DEFENSE by the beginning of Thanksgiving week. SHOOTOUT LANE is in the can, but I haven't seen any rough cuts yet. Also got exciting news last week that one of mine and Marshal's pet projects that has been sitting around for a couple of years is now up and running -- an Internet series dedicated specifically to ARs! As always, this will sincerely rock...right now me, Marshal and Nick Collier from DoubleStar are brainstorming content as we speak.
We are DEFINITELY open to suggestions from you guys!!!! I want to deal with different calibers, "purpose-designed" guns, intelligent self-defense training (as in, "Dude, you are NOT going to Syria next week!"), 3-Gun competition, accessories, etc. I know that's pretty vague, but we're moving toward specifics pretty quickly.
For SilencerCo in Utah I went to GUNSITE for an Outdoor Channel event, with Di Liedorff (Team Benelli) and Ryan Muller (Team Stoeger) teaching a "3-Gun 101" class. Shot Ryan's Adam Arms piston competition rifle...sweet! Then Di, Ry and I (Rhymin'Simon strokes again!) went on to FTW Ranch to film for SG. We wanted to try something different, so we all and different rifles to show the concepts were gun-neutral. I used my .300 Win Mag Ruger Guide Gun, Di a 6.5 Creedmore Ruger Hawkeye, Producer John Carter a box-stock .308 Ruger American, Ryan a McRee Precision BR-10 in .300 Win Mag. Ken Jorgensen from Ruger also joined us with a 1-off Hawkeye.
Gotta say that 200+ rounds of 180-grain .300 Win Mag over a few days will wear you down! And make you a believer in PAST Recoil Shields!
