The Waiting Affair

I received an e-mail earlier this week from the U.N.C.L.E. Gun guru (my term of endearment for Brad) informing me the flat, aluminum grips had arrived from the machinist (he also offers rounded grips) for inspection and was pleased with how they turned out.

The Mountain State Affair

As if being a master machinist isn't a large enough feather to sport in one's cap, Joe Hayes of Hayes Pistolsmithing is also one heck of a gunsmith.

The Subtle Change Affair

In an effort to stay true to the profile of the U.N.C.L.E. suppressor, I asked Joe Hayes about the possibility of excluding the threaded skirt—much the way an AR-15 flash hider attaches directly to the barrel.

The Wall Hanger Affair

In an effort to use the various plastic parts I've brought from Brad over the past year, I bought a Maruzen Airsoft P38 off eBay over the weekend with the intention of building a cool display piece for my office. Working for the NRA, I doubt my co-workers will object.

The Karmic Fate Affair

Now, I never really haven't put much stock in the concept of karma, but this is too coincidental:

The Final Phase Affair

Despite having anticipated "the call" for quite some time, I was still surprised when the call came in from Joe Hayes yesterday.

Byproduct of a Bad-Ass, Pistol-Packing Irishman

To help pass the time until my U.N.C.L.E. carbine returns, I thought I'd treat you all to a sneak peak of a feature I'm been working on for Shooting Illustrated involving another pistol near and dear to me—the Colt Fitz Special.

The Shipping Fiasco Affair

Anticipating the arrival of my U.N.C.L.E. Special and carbine components, I left a message for Joe Hayes yesterday requesting tracking information.

The Reprise Affair

At long last, my package arrived last week containing my carbine barrel with its newly affixed handguard and removable dummy suppressor. The components are superb aluminum duplicates of Brad's parts.

The Hunter Thompson Affair

Yesterday began like no other. My cats were anxiously waiting for me to wake, my morning brew smelled divine and the flavor was just the way I liked it.
