    Bill. I am into soup these days made with vegetable stock. Combating gout the natural way. Low proteins and lots of cabernet.

    Lou. A very deserving Vietnam Vet ask that I not tread on MIA territory for fame or fortune. He has yet to thank me for being so understanding and relenting. I gave him utmost respect and did as he wished, but he carries his burden still as he cannot bring himself to say any type of appreciative word. Too bad for him. I am a nice guy that does not put himself above others,

    I chose MX2G because it looked similar. And so my banner appears the same.

    MIA was an acronym that signaled I had come back to shooting after a 11 year hiatus. If you web search MIA hundreds of MIAs come up reflecting other people and groups.

    But lastly, I know I am only as good as my last offering...got a couple of beauty MX2000 in recently. And mine may well be for sale too as I am just a short time from getting my TMX Special with the new Emrick stock.

    I have 2 almost new nickel receivers. a MX2000 and a MX10RS.

    Would like to see some more recipes Jack. The two I have tried that you posted have been slightly modified but have become staples at my house.

    BTW, we call the Calphalon pan you recommended, "the magic pan." It really does a great job on all kinds of meats.

    Tell you what, I'll post a couple of soup recipes... I am vegetarian 2 meals a day now and max 4 ounces of meat protein at dinner. Lost 15 lbs without trying. That over about 45 days to 2 months. And actually, my latest "find" is a one pot made by Cuisinart 5.5 qt. cost me $20 at Macy's. Easiest cooking tool I have in the house. A lamb chop, 1/2 of the sirloin off a porterhouse (wife gets the tenderloin) a chicken thigh or perhaps 1 or 2 drumsticks, small dinner portions... Vegetarian tacos at lunch, or the soups. I"ll see if I can scout up the pot. Have eliminated cod and other types of fish that create gout. Adn gout is about 90% under control. I figure another 15 lb loss and I will be able to expand my diet some. Another great meal I put together is a travelling vegetable basket for the 40 minute trip to the club. Couple of carrots, 1/2 a cuc, 2 celery stalks and a stalk with cream cheese just to tease myself. an olive stuffed with garlic, some tame jalapeno slices. Easy to eat going down the road and you still feel like shooting when you get to the club. Every time I have that veg basket, I figure I lose a pound that day. YOu guys can look up the pot. On sale now at $20. Highly recommended

    No matter what your sign on name is it will always translate to MIA in my book.

    Jack why don't you throw some veggies in a basket and come on over to Wi. Tuesday is the grand opening of the new WTA Homegrounds. I have a good bottle of bourbon that I heard was good for anything and everything. Woodford reserve double oaked. Good stuff.

    T-Lee. As the saying goes... "I'm taking nourishment". His stress is not good to carry around. His burdens from VN are heavy enough. As I look back on MIA, it seems more that I was adding impetus to the movement.

    Started physical therapy yesterday for my gimpy left shoulder and right hand. the shoulder no longer responded to cortisone and I jammed the right wrist and found it difficult to hold the pistol grip and R trigger at the same time. Shot a couple of ground squirrels... 9 lb gun feels like about 12 lbs. Came across a beauty-ous PFS with the MX grip in wood and perfectly replicated to Perazzi looks and feel incl a palmswell. As soon as I hang up on this I am going to put it on my 2G. Too heavy as it is configured, so I will do a new .6 pad in the am. If I get it done, I'll put up a pic just for "drooling rights". that guy with the Galezzi TMX is making most of us feel bad... I wonder what he paid for that trinket. Hope he is shootin it

    And to the friend that thought of me for that PFS, a huge "thanks a lot".

    Jack
