Totally bummed that we had to reschedule the Mass Casualty Event, but nothing to be done for it when Nature throws you a cold, wet snowball. We've rescheduled for the end of April, where we've got a better weather window. We'll post details for extras on DRTV when we sign the contracts with the venue.
It didi allow me to get into scripting for GUN STORIES, which is something I love to do. It's like following little threads of information back to their source. It's interesting how the "facts" shift and change and morph through the years. Found that yesterday running down an annecdote and finally picked the one closets to the source. After spending so much time with the top firearms historians in the world, I've learned that a lot of what I thought I knew that falls under the heading of "common knowledge" is pretty much wrong.
Been focusing on PT since I got the go-ahead from the doctors…longer walks…the stationary bicycle. I even managed my first wobbly deadlift — just the bar, no weight. As the quad gets stronger, I can add weight. I'm walking without a cane and without my leg brace in the house. I'm "practicing" walking…with a braces and crutches, you get in the habit of "swinging" the leg in a circular motion instead of just lifting with the quad. So you practice doing "marching steps" to get back in the habit of having the quad lift the leg. Big fun!
BTW, now is a wonderful time to stock up on ammo in advance of the coming boom. followed by the inevitable shortages. I was glancing through a Natchez Shooters Supply catalog yesterday and saw Federal 55-gr ball at $354 per thousand. I must have shot a ton of that stuff over the years. Not the most accurate ammo on earth, but not bad, either. TulAmmo 9mm, that's the steel-cased polymer coated 115-gr ball, is going for about $170 per 900-round "sardine can." I keep some of those in "deep storage," which is what their designed for. Don't overlook shotgun shells. Once again, I've shot bushel basket-loads of inexpensive Estate brand, especially their Super Sport Competition loadings. Their #00 buckshot is a steal at $15 per 25, and hey, you can never have enough buckshot!
I generally keep 100 rounds of my favorite hunting ammunition around as well, Hornady Superformance in .308 and .300 Win Mag, Varmint Express in .204 Ruger and LeverRevolution in plain old boring 30-30. Keep in mind Hornady is a sponsor.
I also keep about a dozen flavors of .44 around, from Garrett dino-busters down to Cowboy .44 Specials. Additionally, I have a Dillon 550 with a Redding micrometer seating die dedicated to .44s, because I'm always tinkering with .44 loads.
