The deluge of pre-SHOT Show press releases has left me a little “creative.” I To wit: I started this one attempting to tie the word “MASTER” to actor Alan Bates. As Richard Nixon claimed to have muttered to John Dean, we could do that . . . but it would be wrong. So I’ll just say you’ve got to hand it to grip specialists ERGO for creating a new kind of vice. If you know what I mean. Oh and cogito ergo sum?
