Shoot and Eat in Honolulu

I hosted a fun shoot and pot luck bbq yesterday.
We were celebrating the departure of my shootin' buddy...he is moving to Arizona. The weather was picture perfect. The contest was timed fire at a steel plate at 50 yards. Good friends, good food and mediocre shooting skills makes for a fun Sunday.

It's not lost on me that those burgers are the exact same size and shape as clay pigeons. Great way to dispose of the leftovers.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

looks like a fun day. me and my wife love Hawaii and try to get over there anytime we can. I was stationed there for a short while. She loves Waimea Bay. I love Yokohoma Beach.

That was good times in December. Thanks for sharing.

My wife loves Waikiki and I prefer Kauai.

for those who have never been to Hawaii... you should see the spam section at the local grocery stores. it is something to behold. the most impressive one I've seen, was in Maui.

Four flavors were announced: Pineapple, Maui Snow, Macadamia Nut, and Hawaiian Rainbow. Pineapple brings together two things Hawaiians have long known: pigs and pineapples make fine bedfellows. Endowed with pineapple chunks, the new flavor is sure to make garnishing a pizza that much easier.

Always enjoy the Spam Musubi at 7-11.

Thanks for the funny comments guys. It was a great day for a fun shoot.
RE: spam...it really is a popular food here. It became popular during the WW2 years when the local Asian immigrants would incorporate the canned meat from the military into civilian cooking.

The hamburgers are being grilled by my #3 son. Those are locally pre-made teriyaki flavored burger patties. It is a favorite of the local population here. It's really good.

Today is New Years Eve. We will be shooting fireworks and cooking some Korean-style marinated beef on the charcoal, along with some pineapple sausages.

Happy New Year to you all!

I plan to load up on spam musubi when I visit Hawaii this year. I lived on Oahu for six years during my military days and really enjoyed the local grinds. The most intriguing thing I've seen that is spam related is Spam-flavored macadamia nuts. I used to find them in Wal-Mart but on several recent trips to the islands have only found the item at the airport. And they're expensive!! $20 for two cans.
