A Little Gun Stuff August 23, 2017

I recently had an itch to get a pocket pistol, so I started reading a lot of reviews and watching quite a few YouTube videos. I’ll tell you three of my favorite firearm YouTubers if you’re into that kind of thing.

The first one I watched a lot is Hickok45. He’s a grandfatherly southern gent with an easy-going manner and a common-sense way of explaining things. He shoots all kinds of firearms and describes them and tells you what he likes and doesn’t like about them. He often shows how to take them apart and reassemble them. His videos are at his outdoor shooting range and he’ll usually start with blasting a few targets–he likes 2-liter (full) pop bottles and a variety of steel targets that make a satisfying “ping” when he nails them. He also likes to “smoke some pot” by blasting (empty) flower pots. If you’re thinking of a gun you might want an opinion on, you can probably find a video of him demonstrating it. If you’re like me, you’ll look at a video and think, “I don’t have 25 minutes to spend watching this,” but it goes by really easily. He’s got a good camera presence and usually the audio/video is quite good. A couple of things to consider: he’s a really good shot–he makes it look easy. Also, he has very large hands, so take that into consideration when size matters for your purchasing decisions.

I was searching for YT trailers for the new movie, Dunkirk, and found this 5-minute, single-take tracking shot (in a different movie).

Film fans like geoff will appreciate this.

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

“What I’ve got to do, you can’t be any part of. Ilsa, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.”

“She’s gone. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen.”

Yeah, it’s a commercial for BMW cars but it’s more entertaining than the last 2 movies that I paid money to see.

I know I’m behind the times, but the times for me have a-changed. The IT guy took my trusty Dell doorstop away and replaced it with this:

It’s an Intel NUC. Kind of cool, I think. When is the last time you used the DVD player in your computer?

And furthermore: A neighbor called Saturday afternoon and asked if we wanted a hindquarter of an elk. My thrifty wife got very excited. Of course we do. That was about 3 p.m. We finished the kitchen Clorox wipe-down about 9 p.m. Elk are big mofos.

I should have weighed it before starting. It had to weight 80 lbs. This was a new experience for me–thanks youtube. Also, a neighbor I called and asked if I could borrow his knife sharpener came over and helped me bone it (huhhuhuh). New respect for butchers gained–my hands and back are stiff, but there is a lot of meat in the freezer and on the shelf (we bottled a canner load).
