Well it is officially over after 32 years of wedded blis. Wife say's that she is unhappy and is moving to Florida and I wasn't invited. She will be living near her 2 dtrs from a Prev marriage and her gay/lesbian sister.
Please no cards or flowers. We will have a wake later. Maybe at Boys Camp Shooting Range later this year. Getting my trailer ready. Putting house up for sale! (Ivantank)
All good things must end.

Sorry to hear it, but then again, maybe it's for the best. If she can't accept who you are, maybe it's best to split. First drink's on me at the GS get-together, Sam.

I don't think we are going the legal Divorce route. She is going one way & I am going in the opposite direction. I don't need lawyers dividing up my property into their greedy hands. We have discussed it, made lists and are dividing equitably.

Decided to respond on this one.. Was thinking of responding on the Mosin, course this means "game on" for a battle rifle 500M target post.. Was NOT thinking of responding on "its over".. We can, and will all toast you on starting a new, and ABSOFUCKNLUTLY better life.. The "its over" is just that.. If you need to talk, vent, or some off screen prayers just send a pm.. Otherwise ITS OVER.. You, and only you can control who lives "up there", and think your mental health component is well enough to NOT let anyone you don't want "up there"..

Glad you have Samantha, more important that you got her than anything.. I can promise you that there's more old'r gals out there than old'r men.. You're going to be swimming in neighbor ladys Cakes, Soups, and unmentionables.. But you need the pooch.. oh and the Mosin..

This is going to be good stuff guys.. Were going to have to push Daisy (and others) into getting another rifle. (maybe not, his avatar and all) I think it's great that for what ever reason so many of us picked up battle rifles this winter.. We can do this individually from where ever we are, the question now is what range.. This obviously has to "start" where 5.56 "stops".. yeah right we could make it IK meters and reap would beat me..The rest aya lops.. will see..

How bout this idea.. Sam picked up the Moisn to be a part of this shoot, given circumstances, sounds like a good time for the first annual Sam and Samantha Shoot.. Probably take some time to get up and running, but i'm down for posting pics say 1March. Sam..your shoot, your call on when, and what distance.. I'd love it if we could all get together, but this was at least will have a lot shooting and posting targets..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

I'm serious about getting the Mosin. At $83, how could I not? We definitely need to have a get-together sometime. I really enjoy y'all's company online. I'd really like to meet y'all in person. I wonder how many pounds of lead we can send into dirt?

Good to hear, a man can do without a wife but never without a best friend.....Don't tell my wife I said that, but it's true IMHO!

lol Hamp

yeah, my wife was dumb struck when we split up years back and I put the two dogs in my truck and a Sea Bag stuffed full of my cloths in it and told her have a good life.

She wanted to know what I wanted in the divorce and I told her I had everything that meant anything with me so keep the rest. We did get back together in time and to this day she can't get over the fact that I didn't want anything.

(in edit) sorry ISD, I believe that I came across as condescending and that was not my intent please except my apologies.
I had a different deal and am not in a big hurry to talk about it...LOL! I had two deadbeat mothers of my children and that's all I"m saying, water under the bridge, man, water under the bridge....

Good to hear,

that shit gets ugly in a hurry and as you point out, the fucking lawyers are the only winners, best to just part ways.

Let us know what condition it is in when you get it, I've been thinking about getting one from Buds, but if Cheaper D is selling them in good condition, why not.

Cosmoline tip

Get a galvanized steel tank, a bottle of whiskey and 5 gallons of muriatic acid. Put the rifle in the vat and cover with the acid. Start drinking. By the time the rifle's dissolved, you won't give a shit anymore! :)

Ok everyone, I HAD to add this so I can save some people lots of time and elbow grease.

To heck with the mineral spirits. They work, but slowly and not anywhere near as good as what I tried.

Get yourself a spray can or two of CITRUS based cleaner/degreaser. This stuff cuts through cosmoline like it's nothing, just melts it right off. I hardly had to do any wiping whatsoever. The stuff I used is made by Betco and is called Citrusolv spray organic solvent cleaner degreaser.

I just sprayed the parts down and the cosmoline literally fell off. It didn't hurt the metal/bluing and it didn't harm the wood or the finish on the wood at all.

My first mosin I used mineral spirits. My second one I used the citrus degreaser because I didn't have any mineral spirits. My first mosin took me 2-3 hours to clean. My second mosin took me 45 minutes to clean. You don't even have to soak the parts, just spray them down good and it falls right off.

Don't waste your time with mineral spirits, get it cleaner faster by using a citrus cleaner degreaser spray.

to Sam's post for a great tip that could save many of hours. Just think, Sam, with that post, assuming it saves 15 people 3 hours in which they can be productive, at an average of $25/hour, you just contributed $1,125 to the GDP. Send a sincere "you're welcome" to Obama. ;)

When I was in the Navy I did a lot of unpacking machine gun barrels, washed 'em off in Stoddard solvent. It worked okay but what Sam described is a better world! Next time I unpack machine gun barrels I'll remember that :<)

Lots of mixed emotions in that kind of situation.....I know from experience. But, I also know from experience, it can be a blessing in disguise. It took me 14 years to grow enough to want to try it again. Glad I did.

wasn't going to comment upon it because its a personal thing.

But what the hell...

32 years is a long time and allot of life, one way or the other you keep living life and don't let it start living you...

Head up, wrist locked and press don't pull, you'll hit your target most times than not...
