NOTICE:
To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Hundreds of shots fired during wild Texas shootout. Nobody injured.

.
I’m very late with this story; James Rummel has already covered it in detail here.

Husband and wife Texas bloggers Art and Helen Burnett recently gave a participatory live-fire gun seminar for writers. Handguns, rifles, and shotguns featured were those of the type used by heroes and villains during the 1920s and 1930s. Art has a collection of guns that would give Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley apoplexy.

Stressing safety first, Art and Helen’s events give people a chance to shoot different types of firearms and are immense fun and very educational. Helen’s sacrificial Ford Festiva is evidence that cars offer only marginal protection against bullets.

You can visit Helen’s blog here and visit Art’s blog here. They are great folks.

Greetings from Texas,
Thanks Zack for the kind words. If you and yours are ever in Texas let me know with some lead time. Mischief can be arranged.
