Yes, these things happen…I occasionally have to pretend to be a television producer as opposed to some guy who shoots too much and owns too many guns. Tomorrow, I shoot on the range. Saturday, a match.
The nationwide shooting competition we're working on has made it to the next step…if we can make it work, it's a game-changer…and I think we have the resources to make it work. I really really really need a clone!
Am watching QUIGLEY DOWN UNDER for about the dozenthteenth time…sort of the movie equivalent of comfort food. Speaking of which, did I mention that we discovered a new restaurant in Vegas this year — Yardbird Southern Table & Bar in the Venetian? Me and Producer John Carter knows us some fried chicken, and though it pains me to say this the Yardbird signature fried chicken was better than my grandmother's, which I would swear was handed down by the angels.
I note the .22 TCM is getting an Oleg Volk treatment. I love the cartridge and sincerely hope it continues. I'm definitely going to build up a 6-inch 1911 long distance blaster in .22 TCM…any minute now. Wouldn't it be cool to have an M1 Carbine in .22 TCM…like the old .22 Spitfire/5.7 Johnson? I believe Iver Johnson did a 9mm M1 for a few years, so it wouldn't be a big deal, I would think.
