    So tomorrow will be my very first Sat. to work and they are looking to be busy. Weather is supposed to be mostly sunny and around 65*. Hope I'm prepared! Today I ran the 200/300yd range by myself and did pretty well. Was moderately busy all day. So far I don't know which range I will be working tomorrow. Slowly adjusting to this new routine and actually working again. Last night before bed I took 2 ibuprofen and 1 ibuprofen PM and slept until my alarm went off at 6am.

    When they can figure out how to legislate Morality and Conscience I will consider talking more gun laws.

    I don't think so, but I've known him for a few years now and I'll bet he'll spring for a cup of coffee!

Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    Not even a "Wife's" discount given.

    6 days in now and still haven't taken advantage of range time. Then after being there 9+ hours come 5/5:30 I'm done and ready to split.
    Must also admit I have been exposed to a lot of very interesting firearms and may just have to reconsider my thoughts on a long rifle. Still not convinced I need and AR/AK platform.

    I thought that I had infected you with the AR and the lever gun disease. Seems that you'll need a booster!

    you already took the "man card" two years ago. When did you give it back?

    The vintage Model '94 in 32 Win Special will also provide a satisfying thump to your day!
