SHOT Show - Report #3 maybe

well, we are just about to the end of the shot show, and I'm just about worn out to, so with a little luck it should come out just about even! I forgot to load some image processing software onto my netbook that I need to edit photos that I take here at the show so that they are cropped properly and of a reasonable size, and in some cases that I can do groups of pictures and modify them all at the same time. I will have to get all of my shot show pictures posted probably next week, once I get home and have access to my main computers.

 Yesterday was a very busy day, and I kind of ran out of gas before getting a second post posted. My feet were killing me so right after the show I went to the first shots reception, and right after that went back to the hotel took and ibuprofen, and propped my feet up, shortly thereafter I fell asleep!

 Yesterday at the show some of the highlights included visiting with the folks at the high standard pistol booth, saying hi to Charles Brown at MKS supply ( MKS supply was one of the original sponsors of the gun blogger rendezvous, and every year they donate  a Hi-Point carbine). at the Ruger booth I took a good look at the new Ruger LCR  revolver with the exposed hammer, super light frame, and 3 inch barrel. The trigger action is amazingly good and they have redesigned the grip so it is very comfortable. It also has an adjustable rear sight. Not only is it small and light you may actually be able to hit something with it!

I stopped at the Chiappa  Booth and took a look at their three barrel shotgun. They now have a short barrel version of it that looks Like it would be absolutely terrifying to a bad guy!! I have no reason to own one myself, but it is so cool looking that I want one anyway!

 at the CCI booth I ran into Todd Jarrett  and we talked a bit about rimfire ammunition availability.  He says that nationwide rimfire ammunition availability is improving but still has a long ways to go.

 Yesterday I stopped for a bit at the tactical solutions booth and visited with all of the gang. We are considering what it would take to modify a tactical solutions barrel so that it could be mounted onto my high standard match pistol. I think that if we start with a partially machined barrel for the Ruger takedown 22/45,  it can be shortened up and finish machined so it would fit a high standard. That could be a fun project that would result in a really nice barrel.  In another booth I spoke to a fellow who manufactures extremely high accuracy 22 caliber barrel blanks.  That may be a good way to go for the high standard too,  and that may even result in something that I could manufacture in my own shop for resale.

 Today the show and is at 4 PM, and at 530 there is a post-show gathering put on by Michael Bane  to which I have been invited. Unfortunately, it is several miles from my hotel, and there is no easy and inexpensive transportation available to get there and back. I may be able to hitch a ride, but nothing for certain yet. I'm sure it would be a very fun get-together as I probably know just about everyone who will be there. However, I do have two leave the hotel rather early tomorrow morning to get back to the airport to fly home, so if I am unable to attend the reception/gathering/whatever  that may not necessarily be entirely a bad thing, although I really would like to be there!

 that's about it for now, and my next project to find a place where my phone works so I can arrange the shuttle pickup tomorrow morning to get to the airport. Once that is done, then I am off to the show floor for the rest of the day.

 More later maybe...........

SHOT Show Reportv #2

well, I have survived a day and a half of the shot show, although my feet are not entirely pleased with how I have been treating them for the last 36 hours. There is something like 15 miles of aisles at the shot show and most of them are on hard concrete. Just about everyone, by the end of the show, has feet that are not in a very good mood! In addition to walking up and down all of the aisles of the show, it is also a fairly good hike from the hotel where I am staying to the show itself. It's a combination of walking down long hallways of various hotels, casinos, up elevators, down elevators, escalators, and cutting through parking lots to get to the show. And that if you take all of the shortcuts! Once you get to the show, the hallways and aisleways are packed elbow to elbow with people. Last year, the attendance at the shot show was a bit over 61,000 people. That's 61,000 different people, as they only counted each person once, even if they attended all days of the show.

 In one of the booths on display was a grand new Dodge power wagon pickup with every bell and whistle that you could imagine.it even had special lockers on the topsides of the bed with adjustable racks inside that could be turned one way or the other so that they could hold either rifles for fishing poles. The truck was super deluxe in the cab and it had a huge motor. Even with all of its size and weight, the guy in the booth told me that it would still get 18 to 22 Miles per gallon. The list price of the truck was $60,000. I guess I will have to put off buying it perhaps until next month!

 I stopped by the booth for MKS Supply  and took a look at the new US manufactured M-1  carbine. It is extremely true to the original design, and looks like it would be a fun gun to shoot. It's not cheap, though, so I will probably have to by it at the same time that I buy the truck!

Everything is very expensive here in Las Vegas, including the food. A dinner buffet is over $25. Fortunately, close to the hotel where I am staying, there is a Denny's, and their prices are the same as at every other Denny's, rather than being marked up higher since they are in Las Vegas. a senior dinner was only $7.95. Much more in my budget!

That's about it for the moment, so I am going to finish my cup of coffee and head back out to the floor of the show.

 More later......

SHOT Show - Report #1

I wasn't really planning on reporting on the trip to Las Vegas and the shot show, but the weather conditions were perfect when my flight passed  mount Rainier,  which is only a few minutes flight time south of Seattle. I took a couple of pictures, and this is one of the better ones. It is fairly high resolution, so if you click on it you can see it much larger.



Here at the show, I just finished meeting with some industry folks, and it looks like there is a fairly good possibility that the gun blogger rendezvous may have a title sponsor for next year. Nothing is for certain yet, but it certainly looks like a good possibility. Keep your fingers crossed!

 I just heard that there is a free lunch for media people here at the shot show, so I am going to go exploring.

 More later.

Pre-SHOT Show Report



Getting ready for the SHOT show in Las Vegas, which runs most of next week. There will be tons of people writing all about the latest widgets, fidgets, and range bling, so I'm not planning on much of that. What I hope to do is to take you all along for the ride, so to speak, and experience the show as if you were there too. I also will be meeting with some industry folks that are considering taking over the Gun Blogger Rendezvous and keeping it going, a task that's just more than I can do by myself. I won't be at the show for the Monday Range Day, but I will be there for the show from Tuesday afternoon through closing on Friday night. Keep an eye on http://www.mrcompletely.blogspot.com and also here for my Shot Show posts.

Gun Blogger Rendezvous - R.I.P. --- Maybe Not?

The demise of the Gun Blogger rendezvous may not happen, after all, at least I hope not. At least there is a small ray of hope. I will be meeting with some great folks at the SHOT show who may be interested in keeping the Rendezvous going. No one has made any commitments whatever, but some interest has been shown, and we are going to have a meeting to discuss possibilities.

If I have good news to report, I will try to get a post up sometime Wednesday afternoon, the 21st. of January from the press room at the show.

It's kind of a long shot, but you never know......

Gun Blogger Rendezvous --- R.I.P. ???





Nine years ago, when I first fired up the Gun Blogger Rendezvous, blogging was a completely different world compared to blogging today. A lot of the early bloggers are now more involved with Facebook, instead of blogging. The bloggers who blog almost every day are still doing well, but the mid to smaller sized bloggers are disappearing.

Looking back, I'd say the Gun Blogger Rendezvous has been very successful, giving a bunch of great folks a chance to get together once a year and socialize, shoot, raise money for worthy charities, and have a good time. The demand for such an event seems to be dropping, even though we have continued to add new activities each year. It is a lot of work to put on such an event, and moving it from city to city each year makes it many times more difficult. It has always been the kind of event I would personally like to attend. When you are running it, however, it's a lot more like work than fun, even though it is very rewarding too.

Unless someone is willing to step in and take over running the Gun Blogger Rendezvous, then the last Rendezvous has been held. If someone wants to take over for me, and run it in Reno, I can certainly work with them as to venues, contacts, and other details that have taken years to establish. I can even help at the event, including MC'ing, if needed.

If not, so long, and thanks for all the fish......... (You DO know where that line came from, don't you?)

Enough of the Global Warming Already!

Yeah, I know it's pretty, but I gotta replace the brake master cylinder in the pickup today. Bah.......

Thank You, Jesus!

It's been a bit depressing around here lately, so here's something that will bring a chuckle to at least some of you all!


Made you smile, didn't it!

I Got the I-594 Blues....

I was fortunate enough to see Albert King live and up close two or three times before he left us.



Absolutely amazing...

Shoot - NOW!

I should start out by stating that I am not an expert at all when it comes to self defensive handgun use, but I have learned a few lessons from handgun shooting, and particularly competition speed shooting that should be considered.

Common sense will tell you that getting a center mass hit on the bad guy before he gets a shot off will greatly improve your chance of survival. Trying for the perfect shot that takes out his third shirt button might be good marksmanship, but if you try for the perfect shot you may never get the shot off at all.



In this short video I demonstrate taking the first shot as the gun is moving up, rather than allowing the sight to settle on the target, getting a good sight picture, and squeezing off the shot. Yes, this is a race gun, a red dot sight, and a race holster. The technique, regardless, is basically the same. Saving a half or even a quarter of a second can make the difference as to who gets to assume room temperature at the end of the day.

If you want to try this technique, (assuming you have already developed basic handgun skills) use a fairly large target at close range. Start with the handgun aimed a foot or so below the target. Smoothly raise the gun, and break the shot just before the sights reach the middle of the target. The key here is smooth, not quick, and not jerky! Don't jerk the trigger, keep it smooth. You might be surprised just how accurate you can become. Dry fire practice? Absolutely!

Be safe, have fun!

No on I-594 Seattle Rally

A week or so ago I spent most of Saturday at a rally against Washington State Initiative I-594. The rally was held at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle. There was a pretty good turnout, perhaps 250-300 folks, and there were several interesting speakers.

Unfortunately, Bloomberg, Paul Allen, and a few other rich guys have poured over ten million bucks into passing this severely anti-gun initiative, and the rest of us just haven't got the money to compete with them and their wallets. However, there is another initiative, I-591, which will help to blunt the damage caused by I-594. I-594 will do nothing to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals, since they usually either steal, or buy stolen guns, they don't buy their guns from FFL dealers or at gun shows.

Vote YES on I-591, and Vote NO on I-594


Here's some of the pictures I took.














This was probably the safest place in Seattle that day!!

The Headstone Band

The Headstone Band, the house band at The Cozy Corner Tavern in Clinton, Wa. Photo taken in the early 70's. Left to right; Loren, Jeff, Mr. C., and Bob.

You might wonder about the previous post about Jack Bruce, and why old rock bands are an are of interest for me. Well, in the late sixties and early seventies I, too, was a rock guitarist. Certainly not on the level of the great rock guitarists of the day, (not even close!) but I did manage to supplement my modest income with some regular gigs in local bars and so on. 

Although it was quite a bit of work, it was also a whole lot of fun, too. Playing live for a crowd that is really enjoying your music is an experience that you can't really explain. You have to have experienced it to understand what I'm talking about, and if you haven't experienced it, there is no way to explain it.

Jack Bruce - R.I.P., and thanks........

Jack Bruce? Who? A lot of you folks a bit younger than I may not even recognize the name. However, the influence of a rock band in the late sixties is still heard today.

A three piece band called "Cream", comprised of Jack Bruce on Bass, Ginger Baker on drums, and Eric Clapton on guitar  produced some truly amazing rock. To this day, bands are still trying to find that energy, that groove, that sense of magic that these guys were able achieve.

This video was recorded in late 1968 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. 



Turn your speakers ALL THE WAY UP, and enjoy. This is what rock is all about!

.......far out, man!

Liberal Logic

Here's an example of how liberal logic works:

Question: "If you have four pencils and I have seven apples, how many pancakes will fit on the roof?"

Answer: "Purple, because aliens don't wear hats......"

Implant Allows Speaking To God

MICROCHIP  IMPLANT ALLOWS TERRORISTS TO SPEAK TO GOD




The implant is specifically  designed to be injected in the  forehead. When properly  installed, it will instantly allow the  terrorist to speak to God.

It comes in various sizes:  Generally from ..223 to .50  cal. The exact size of the implant  will be selected by a well-trained and highly  skilled technician, who will also make the injection.

No Anesthetic is required. The implant is likely to be  painless. Side effects, like headaches, nausea,  aches or pains are extremely  temporary. Some bleeding or swelling may  occur at the injection site. In most cases, it's not noticeable.

Please enjoy the security  provided for you by the Armed Forces of America.

Best regards,



NO on I-594, and YES on I-591 (please....)


This eighteen page long bill is a complete mess. It even conflicts with current Federal law.

VOTE NO on I-594

I-591, also on the ballot, outlaws government gun confiscation (like they did after Katrina) without due process of law. It also limits state background checks to not exceed Federal standards. This is a good initiative, and will also help dealing with I-594, should it pass too.

VOTE YES on I-591

Thanks!

WIN ME at The Gun Blogger Rendezvous!!

Osage County Guns, a new sponsor to the Rendezvous is contributing ANOTHER pistol for our fundraising raffle for Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA), a SIG Sauer 1911-22 that will look a lot like this one:
Osage County Guns photo 1911-22LR-Detail-Hero.jpg
And you can win it with a simple raffle ticket. But you must be present to win! So make your reservations today to come join us in Reno, September 4-7!

You Could Win This at the GBR!

For the upcoming Rendezvous, Dillon Precision is donating a couple of their Border Shift ammo bags.  I already own a couple of them.  Very handy for the handloader, since you have loaded ammo on one side, and you can drop your empty cases into the other.  A soft but full divider keeps the two separate.

Thanks to Kevin for putting these posts together!

A Good Reason to Attend This Year's Gun Blogger Rendezvous in Reno

You could go home with one of these:
AR-F3 photo Ar-F3.jpg
That's a Burris AR-F3 red-dot sight for the AR-15, but it'll fit any Picatinny rail. I bet it'd go nicely on the Ruger Mk III Hunter that's being given away.  A big thanks to Lori Yunker (née Petoski) of Burris!  She attended GBR VI when she worked for Ruger.

Digital Shooting Range at Gun Blogger Rendezvous


We just got this confirmed:

For our Sunday morning event at Gun Blogger Rendezvous IX, it looks like we'll be doing digital shoot-house training at MiScenarios Indoor Shooting Range.


We need ten shooters @ $15 each.  That won't be a problem, I think.  I'm definitely in, as is just about everyone who's heard about it.

Time's running out, make your hotel reservations and get your registration in soon! Silver Legacy Group Rate Code: GBLOG14 You must phone 1-800-687-7733 to get the special room rate.

Everyone who's heard about this is already excited! I can't wait to give it a try, although they don't seem to use Open Division Race Guns in self defense much. Wonder why........

Latest Updates - (way overdue..... - sorry!)

I have been so busy dealing with the recovery process and complications, I haven't had the time or energy to write much about it. The good news is that the triple bypass open heart surgery was a complete success. I am almost fully recovered from it, and have much more oxygen in my system. I do not get out of breath nearly so easily as before. I felt pretty well, and have even been able to shoot a couple of matches.

Shortly after the heart surgery I developed diverticulitis. That put me back in the hospital three times in extreme pain. I am still having problems with that, but I think progress is being made. I am hoping that surgery will not be needed. I am getting very tired of doctors, surgeons, and hospitals!! It could take another month or so to shake this one off.

A good friend of mine, Larry Davis, and I are flying to Los Angeles early Thursday morning, and then we are driving to Valencia, CAlifornia, to the hotel. The hotel is about twenty minutes by car from Piru, California, where the West Coast Steel Championships will be held on Saturday and Sunday.

It will be possibly the largest steel match of the year, with entries limited to 340. KC Eusebio will be there, along with a lot of other top shooters, so it's not only a good match to shoot, it's also fun to watch the top guys shoot!

My shooting is still a bit rusty due to lack of practice, and lack of matches shot, but I am starting to get back up to speed. I am planning to shoot my High Standard Rimfire Optic pistol with the OKO sight and a barrel of my own design and built in my own shop. I am also going to enter the Rimfire Rifle Optic class with a Ruger 10/22 rifle with a Tactical Solutions barrel, OKO sight, and a prototype all CNC machined ultra-light aluminum stock that I built. Since competition with a rimfire rifle is totally new to me, so far I am faster with the pistol. However, with some practice I think this new race gun stock is going to get me some pretty good speed. I can feel the potential when I shoot it, but I haven't shot it enough to really get it up to speed!

TAGGING GUN OWNERS VEHICLES WARNING



Got this from a shooter in Texas, but it could happen anywhere.

TAGGING GUN OWNERS VEHICLES  WARNING While I was in a Texas gun store today, my car was tagged on the wheel in the ...parking lot. The gangs do this on wheels or bumpers at gun stores, shooting ranges, gun shows etc. Later when you are parked at a restaurant, hotel, or other location that's less well
guarded or under video surveillance, other gang members spot the marker and break into the car for a quick gun grab.

This is so RAMPANT in San Antonio where we were for a National shoot this summer, the Sheriff of Bexar County came out to brief the 400 participants of our competition. Too bad three teams had already been victimized the first day. This is the first I've heard of this in Texas. Please pass this info along to your 2nd amendment list. Daily check your car, truck or motor home for unusual painted dots, marks, check marks or other strange looking symbols that are not normal to your type vehicle. It could prevent you from being a victim of robbery, or even save your life if you catch the thief in the act.

Monday, April 21, 2014

Yep, I'm back, more or less......

It's been an interesting three plus weeks, to say the least! About two or three days agao I finally turned the corner and started to show progress in recovery. I'm still really weak and get itred out easily, but each day of the last three has shown noticeable improvement. I can now walk around a bit, and get in and out of bed unassisted. We went to the surgeon this morning and had the incisions checked over, and everything is healing up well. Thanks to everyone who emailed or commented with best wishes. That meant a lot when I was at the really low points in this adventure.

Mr Completely is home. Update by Keewee

Mike is home from the hospital, and on the long road to recovery. Right now he is feeling the effects of not getting a quality night's sleep, which could be the medications, or one of the things expected as written below. We will know more after a visit with the surgeon on Monday.
According to the paperwork sent home from the hospital with us, things to expect after bypass surgery, amongst others, could be fatigue, (tiredness), mood swings, or depression. Problems sleeping or loss of appetite.
Full recovery from traditional bypass may take 6-12 weeks or more. It varies from person to person

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Update on Mike's condition.

Mike went back into the hospital on Wednesday afternoon. He was dehydrated from Nausea, had anxiety, and some other issues which had to be addressed. I spoke to him earlier today, and he told me he was feeling very tired. It is good he is being kept in the hospital until he feels better, and the medications are working to make him comfortable.
I look forward to him being back home, I hope it is soon.
