    Almost half way through another night shift. The 'Lade has just kicked over 80k miles. It has been pretty good for maintenance and only requires brakes so far. Still trying to decide if a tranny cooler is required for towing. :undecided: Trailblazer is still going strong @110k miles under the...

    Holy crap. I don't feel so bad after hearing those conditions. :crazy: I am way too old to work that hard anymore. Must be a nice payday at the end though. I do one week days then one week nights. They are 3 day weeks. Then once a month I have to work 4 night shifts. It's an hour equalization...

    Ok ...... so its my birthday on Friday. Too old to care any more. My wife has wrapped up some of my old stuff thinking I won't remember I had it. Kinda like when you buy that tool over and over again then find all the duplicates in one cleaning session. I know I get cake because I ordered it. I...

    Ah night shift again .....gotta love it. :tongue: Had a good day at the range last week. Shot all three guns and tried some purchased reloads. Kind of unhappy with the consistency of the charges. But it still made holes in the targets :thumbsup:

Probably will take a day trip up to Whistler/Blackcomb where the winter Olympics were held 4 years ago. Now that I have sold my bike I have to find other ways to amuse myself ........and maybe live a...

    Apparently the FN P90 is fairly expensive up here and is limited to semi-auto of course for Canada :confused: I saw a guy with one at the range a few weeks ago and it was pretty cool.

    My buddy keeps telling me that I need a long gun. :undecided: A rifle you say .....hmmm. It seems that the only rifle kind of thing I seem to be interested in is really short and nowhere near long gun status.:thumbsup: This weekend I should get to the range. I have to see how the 1911 colt...

    Lol! Thanks D. And that's why I could not get the barrel out! At first I thought I welded it together with my incredibly fast trigger finger doing quick draw! :tongue: That bushing in the front is a beast and I guess my next purchase will be a bushing wrench! :thumbsup: Now I need my...

    Anybody get in any range time lately? I went out last week and took a newb. I think he is hooked on handguns! :wootwoot: My 1911 Colt has this little thing on the barrel that Richard Shockey devised in the 60's called a mousetrap. He attached it to the top of the recoil spring plug and it puts...

    Wow I sure got messy with rapid fire sessions. Yesterday the weather was a little cool (notice how I stuck the Pentatonix autographed poster in) but what is a little snow on the range going to hurt!
