Post Christmas

Evening guys. Well the long haul holiday is over. (thank goodness) I got some decent stuff and some junk that'll make good targets :)
The LEE 1000 Progressive press is waiting on me to finish assembly.
Mighty glad I left out of the panhandle last monday. There's still about 6" of snow on the ground here. (just got back) The RV is warming up quick enough, 46 indoor now.
I hope yall had a good Christmas and have a safe and prosperous new year!

snow

We were in Houston and just got rain. Of course all the south TX folks were "freezing" but it never got below 50 there, felt pretty nice really. I reckon you could come down here and give some lessons on snow removal. It looks like a cluster f^$k here. All the snow is piled in the center of the road instead of the shoulder. A left turn aint gonna happen.

Little red headed feller about 3YO. His dad is raising him right, hunting, fishing, etc....
He was showing me his fishing pole and tackle he got for Christmas and talking about his hunting game which led to talking about guns. He wanted to know if I had a gun with a scope, yep, then he thought a bit (had that real serious look) and asked "any of your guns got orange on 'em?"
I got a chuckle out of that. Then his dad explained that the boy aint to touch a gun without an orange tip on the barrel. Them two are OK!

I checked before I left today. I will get 'em saturday when I get back home.
BTW, it's 1 Blackhawk, convertible with a 9mm cylinder. If the geezer can find the cylinder!

Just be glad brother had the 357 in it and not the 9.. i didn't mention it to sis, as with all the "family" issues she had the timing was pretty bad..

One good thing is her comment when i first asked about them was she said two, and brother used both (with the T92) .. least we know the single six has both..

Maybe you can just wrap a little aluminum foil around a 9MM and sorta hammer it in.. wrap some bailing wire around the bottom like a half moon clip..

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

torture

I do that to my brother on occasion just to remind him how he effd up when he sold his Python for about what he gave for it. It would bring close to 1600 now, so I remind him now and then.

I belive

that armslist has become our new porn site of choice

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
