Today, is a special day for me, it’s the 23rd anniversary of coming to the United States. Was a pretty good day, mostly spent taking photos of Remington shotguns, tactical and sniper rifles for several magazines. Good weather, a range in the middle of a huge farm in Kentucky, what’s more to ask of a job? While there got inquiries for one definite and one probable contracts to do more ads, photography and writing.
On the way home confirmed that a Tavor is coming my way in June.
Went by my local gun store and found that my re-birthday presents arrived, one for me and one for my inner child. I will post photos shortly, swamped with short deadlines right now. Mark II is a lot like my Mossberg 144 in intent but much lighter and shorter and handier, will be even better for introducing new shooters. Rascal…very nice wood and sights. And, quite amazingly for a kids rifle, an Accu-trigger! I have a feeling that will be a great deal of fun to wring out. I have several bricks of Aguila rifle match and CCI Subsonic on hand and lots more on order. Coming soon, a five-way kids rifle shoot-off between Crickett, Hanry Mini bolt, TC Hot Shot, Savage Rascal and Remington rolling block #6 from 1902!
Sat down to dinner with friends, then went back to work. It’s good to be healthy, happy, busy and surrounded by many friends. US is a better country than I hoped in 1989 and also a worse country in some ways. Despite the occasional smell of Communism and the increasingly frequent clacking of the jackboots, it’s still a good place to live.
