Winchester Model 70

The “rifleman’s rifle”, in .30-06 Springfield.  A man-sized rifle throwing a man-sized bullet!  It was a delight to shoot.  If I ever get my rifle license here in Japan (this requires 10 years of shotgun ownership – more on this later) this would be my first choice, though the CZ550 FS in 6.5mm Swedish would come very close…

I’m not a drooling gun nut, honest!  Thank you Steve-san for the great day’s shooting, on the beautiful island of Guam!


Thank you Mr. Casull

The M1 Garand may have been the finest battle implement ever devised, but the .454 Casull must be one of the most absurd handgun bullets ever, at least to those of us who face no risk of being eaten by a bear, polar or otherwise.  Six shots was enough for me, and I managed to get all six 8, 9 or bull on the paper without hurting myself or anyone else.  Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

however you celebrate!  And here’s to big catches and calm seas for all anglers in 2019…

I myself spent Christmas fighting the war on type 2 diabetes, one can of cola drink at a time.

Thank you Captain Yutaka!

Guess where I’ve been!

My favourite fishing vessel on the Pacific Ocean!  Thank you to Captain Yutaka for the great day on the water!

So long and thanks for all the fish!

But please, please do something to improve the drink you call kwor-fee
