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......"
That explains a lot!

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:
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.
You could go home with one of these:
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.
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.
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.
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 am posting for Mike, just to let everyone know, that he is in the hospital after undergoing triple bypass surgery.
In a previous post I mentioned that Soldier's Angels had agreed to take over management of the Gun Blogger Rendezvous. This was the result of numerous conversations and emails between Soldier's Angels and myself. I agreed to help as I could in the transition, but Soldier's Angels would take over the management and organizing of the Rendezvous.
For those of you who have attended the Gun Blogger Rendezvous' over the last eight years, you know just how much fun it is. Each year the number of events and activities have increased, and we continue to raise money for Soldier's Angels and Project Valour-IT, a division of Soldier's Angels.
Things are moving right along with the new International Steel Shooting Association that I have been putting together over the last couple of years. Our beautiful logo was designed by Robb Allen. The new business cards featuring his artwork are ordered and on the way.

it's early afternoon and I am back in the press room at the SHOT show with another large cup of coffee. I've spent most of the morning traveling from booth to booth looking at lots of new goodies and cool things that I can't afford! I stopped by the High Standard pistol booth and talk to them about becoming a dealer. Since I have been using high standard pistols for years in rimfire competition with good results I have no hesitation recommending them to others and if I can be a dealer that can get them a new high standard at a good price that's even better. Most of the booths are very busy but I consider it at the very least good manners to stop by and say hi to all of the companies that are sponsors of the gun blogger rendezvous.
It was an interesting morning this morning, wandering around the floor of the shot show looking for new exciting and interesting stuff, and taking a picture or so to put up here on the blog. One of the things that I have specifically been looking for was the new Smith and Wesson 9 mm eight shot revolver named the 929. I first heard about this new revolver several weeks ago on Sascha Back's blog from Germany. If you haven't had a look at Sascha's blog you can find the link over there on the right on the sidebar. The new 929 looks very nice but I suspect it is way out of my budget. Nonetheless, I'm sure there are shooters out there who can't wait to get their hands on one. It should be an outstanding revolver for steel shooting.

I didn't get to bed last night until nearly midnight as after the show there were two separate functions I attended. Both were held and very loud and noisy sports bars but were a lot of fun in spite of the noise. This morning I have almost lost my voice to two the fact that I had to shout most of the night to carry on a conversation. Even so, it was a lot of fun and I ran into a bunch of great people that I only see once or twice a year. Larry from Brownell's was there, Anthony from lucky gunner, a bunch of gun bloggers, Pete Brownell, and more. And that is only a few of the people I was hanging out with last night. I apologize for all of the names that have I have left out.
Well, 4 AM came very early this morning, but, in spite of everything I am now in the press room at the shot show. I was so tired at the airport in Seattle after the long shuttle bus ride from Whidbey Island that I almost fell asleep waiting for the flight. Fortunately, I woke up about 20 minutes before departure. The flight from Seattle to Las Vegas was on a very new Boeing 737 – 900 ER. The seats were unusually comfortable for as small as they are, and there was even a bit more legroom than you would expect. The shuttle ride from the Las Vegas airport to the hotel took almost 45 minutes, but eventually, I arrived.
If you've never tried one of the Mr' Completely e-Postal matches, this is the year to give it a try!
