Hey, where do you shooting idpa and uspsa around here?

Good to have you back. :tiphat:
We are spoiled here in central Texas.

These days I’m usually only attending the Temple Gun Club matches (idpa and uspsa once a month, Steel challenge Thursday nights in the summer).

Copperas cove also has idpa and Steel matches, Austin has uspsa/idpa, college station has uspsa/idpa/steel.

If you have the time, you could shoot a match every weekend around here, sometimes one on Saturday and one on Sunday.

Check out central Texas practical shooters on Facebook, they keep a running list of what matches are being held where and when.

Re: Been too long

Here’s a copy of a post I did for a “dinner pic” Arfcom style. Only I made breakfast tacos, so mine is a breakfast pic. Hope you enjoy, Bill.

Step 1: dice up a yukon gold potato. Boil in water with vinegar/salt for 5 minutes. Just enough to get the insides a little fluffy.

Image

step 2: (also step 0): get out the bacon. I coated this center cut bacon in flour last night and put it in the fridge. I know it sounds crazy, but the flour keeps the bacon from folding up and cooking unevenly on a hot pan.

Image

step 3: lightly beat two eggs, set everything up by your skillet. Instead of a skillet, I'm using a homemade discada, made from a disc off an old plow I used to spend hours dragging through the family farm as a kid. I like to add a little cumin and hot smoked paprika to the potatoes for a little extra flavor. Protection while grilling provided by my VZ 61 Skorpion SBR.

Image

The discada:

Start with the bacon so we can use the bacon grease for everything else:

Image

Crisp up the potatoes in the bacon grease:

Image

I’m lazy and just roughly cut up the bacon with scissors while the potatoes are crisping without having to go back inside, then throw them back on.

Image

Then dump in the eggs

Image

Image

Take off eggs/bacon/potato mix, throw on the tortillas. I really like the half corn/half flour ones HEB makes that offends purists of both sensibilities.

Image

The Arf dinner pic tradition is a meal, along with a rifle, pistol and a reload for each.

When I did this one I decided to go with my JM stamped Marlin 1894c in .357 magnum, and a S&W Model 66-8 (their new 2.75” K frame in .347 with a full length ejector), along with a Blackjack Model 5 knife. And Dr Pepper to drink, of course.

Welcome back to the forum. I am doing okay. Had some health issues, but they are under control.
In addition to the CHL topics I have missed your cooking and your music posts. I am not nearly as active
posting as I used to be. I guess, I don't have as much new to say. ;)
Good to see you still posting, WildBill.

Sorry about your health problems.

I did a dinner pic on another forum recently, let me drag up the pictures for ya. :mrgreen:

Catch us up on all your blessings.
Gladly. :biggrinjester: Wife finished her schooling and got a job, and most importantly....I got a promotion to "Dad" in 2018.

Still in Temple. City has grown like crazy since I moved here back in 2010.

Still shoot USPSA/IDPA/Steel as often as I can, but my range time has slowed down a bit with the kiddo in the house.

Lost a dog, added two new rescue dogs to the house (right before we found out the wife was pregnant...thankfully everyone handled the transition okay).

Glad to be back.

Been too long

How’s everybody doing?

Haven’t posted much in a long time. Had issues for a while where I had to log on every single time I visited the forum and got tired of doing it....but figured it was time to try again and reconnect with some of my fellow Texans. :mrgreen:
