    How do you eat them

    Ok, here’s how I do it. Two strips of bacon, two jumbo eggs over easy salted and drenched with Tabasco sauce, and of course the grits. After the solid part of the eggs are gone mix the liquid with the grits. Right now I’m also having cherry tomatoes from the garden.

    What is your method to combat offhand wobble?

    A friend, long gone, was the best pistol shot I’ve ever seen. He hunted squirrels with a High Standard target pistol. Always head shots. I asked him how he did it. He said just pull off as you jiggle by. Worked for him..

    My Homemade Wads

    The best media to use for punching wads is lead melted into a shallow pan. When it gets too rough to suit you a couple of minutes with a propane torch gives you a new surface. It’s a good use of the too hard lead alloy we all have.
