TV Guns, Scooters, and Food!

Steven K. Ledin, TV Guns, Scooters, and Food!

I filmed 5 Midwest Outdoors "Tips of the Week" last Wednesday. It went great. It was a special day because everything went according to plans. Everything, the whole day. From the lack of traffic during the couple hour trip down, to the filming itself, and the trip home. I treated myself to a couple of strawberry daiquiris and an extra large pizza afterwards. The following pictures are the guns I used for four of the spots.

I shot …

Wayne’s Polytech Legend, Scope Mounting and Filming

Independence Day OPMODasaki with Crash Bars and R-25

Steven K. Ledin, Independence Day OPMODasaki with Crash Bars and R-25

Got the Crash bars installed on the OPMODasaki for the July 4th weekend celebration. The Crash bars are made out of a circa 1950's galvanized Dean's milk crate for our miniature pinscher Crash Almighty. It's padded on the bottom with sexy hot pink tiger stripe and hinged for easy dog insertion. I strategically removed some bars from the crate just large enough for Crash's head to stick through the top and all four sides. Pictures to follow with her in it wearing her pink harness and Doggles.
