Day 16 Continued

On Day 2 I mentioned I met custom gun builder Bill Wilson’s wife and that she was a pilot preparing to enter an all-woman air race. Bill informed me the other day that Joyce and her partner came in 2nd Place. This was Joyce’s first air race!


I’ve spent all of today working on three different assignments. All of the reasearch has been completed, the story just needs told. Most of the morning I worked on piece for Gunhunter magazine that deals with versatile rifle cases.

Just before lunch my gunwriter assistant and I drove out to Dove’s Guns to pick up a Les Baer bolt rifle I will be using at an upcoming long range shooting school and a Glock the Jerry installed a LaserLyte rear sight on.

After lunch it was back to the computer to work on a piece for Shooting Illustrated . Com on close quarters shooting with a handgun. Ed Head from Gunsite helped out with this piece.

Finally, I started my review of NAA’s Guardian  in .32 NAA for one of FMG’s Tactical Annual.

Today’s word count – not counting the ones I deleted: 3283
