I would like to announce that Outdoor Life’s website is starting up a new blog called The Gun Shots, which is being run by their Executive Editor John Snow, a young man who has committed no major crimes that I am aware of.

Now I’m sure that many of you are asking why Field & Stream would be giving aid and comfort to an enterprise of its arch rival when it should be trying to pistol-whip their aged aunts, figuratively speaking, of course. The answer is that roughly 20 years ago, in a corporate maneuver that was probably illegal and certainly unnatural, Field & Stream was acquired by the same money-grubbing company that owned OL, and since then we have gotten along like Rosie O’Donnell and Tom Selleck.

But enough of that. I’m sure that you’ll enjoy The Gun Shots, and urge you to log on. I did, and happened to see that Gerry Gibbs is still alive, and for someone who went fishing with Warren Gamaliel Harding, he looks remarkably youthful.

I was told to say this.
