    Surely you've seen "Gran Torino"? I love all of his movies. Haven't seen his most recent yet though. I wish he were my boyfriend. I think he was my first crush from when I was about five. He and Leonard Nimoy.. Perhaps Mr. Eastwood deserves his own thread/topic on AH. Just a thought.

    I saw Gran Torino on the last trip to Africa, I didn't like it as much as Unforgiven...that movie "rocked"

    I know what you're thinking...did he shoot 5 shots or 6? To be honest in all the excitement I've lost track myself. But being this is the .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow your head clean off, you have one question to ask yourself, do I feel lucky? Well...do ya.....punk?

    Excellent, yes, it is a very stressful and often thankless career but when it goes well, there's nothing better. Owning a restaurant and being the chef is a double whammy.

    My dad owned a couple of restaurants and was the chef. . My grandfather came from Italy and learned the trade through his father. My gramps had a couple of restaurants in Cleveland and my dad grew-up working his ass-off. My dad and grandpa taught me (I worked in my dad's place) from when I was a kid. I would just consider myself a sous-chef though. I've never had any formal training. Now I am a phelbotomist, go figure.. Still I love to cook when I can. Mostly these days it's just regular stuff for my two boys so not much of a challenge.

    I do like to cook. I cooked at the Hilton Inn in Monterey California, also at the Strater Hotel in Durango Co. I would never call myself a Chef, but I do love to cook. I once had Clint Eastwood buy my lunch. He owns a restaurant in Monterey called the Boars Breath . I was there eating with a friend and guess who walks in? My friend Fred knew Clint from back before the Wagon Train days , so he came over and sit with us. After lunch he picked up the tab. It was funny because he said "I'll get this you guys get the tip".
    As far as the original subject. The .454 would be my weapon of choice between the 2.
