Morning all.

Stupid kitten woke me up 45 minutes early. Angry  The thing hasn't figured out that closed doors mean he's not wanted, so he just sits there and meows.

First day up at a lookout tower today.  I have to leave town by 9:30, and then go up there and sit around doing nothing for the next 9 hours.  Yay.  At least I'm getting paid.

   “Of course it does.  But we gotta get what we can in the mean time.” He said with a lopsided grin.  She smiled back and pulled her Colt, stuffing the barrel into his belly.
   “Yer' getting slow.  Better work on that.”  She said and walked back into the house with the empty coffee pot.

Watch out for that okra, that nasty stuff will kill ya Wink

Well, we had a couple days where the storms come up fast and hard... lots a wind and rain. On the plus side, after it was done last night, we had a clear sky, mild breeze, and it was in the lower 70's inside. Beautiful sleeping weather... and I just couldn't get to sleep! A couple of episodes of Boardwalk Empire (With commentary), and I finally went to sleep about 3 or 4ish.

The main genny died yesterday. Normally they just blow up, but this one decided it wanted to live, it just didn't want to provide any electric. So I ended up bringing the little shop genny over for the cabin, since it used to be the back up before I moved shop into the shed. Beautiful thing about Harbor Freight warranties, work that genny like a dog for a year, trade it in when it dies. Now, y'all can say what you want about Harbor Freight stuff being junk, but we work a genny 10-18 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I might have mentioned to the camp some time back ....I won a GLOCK  Undecided

It was April 10, at the range I had volunteered to RO " Ladies Day " It's an open event to ladies only to try the different disciplines
offered.  It has been a yearly thing extremely well attended some 300 women sign up for all over the State, some never have shot before.
I man the Western action stage , and 129 women tried that venue....

The event is rather well sponsored, as I mentioned GLOCK , Kel-Tec, High Standard, Midway, Mossberg , Hoppe's to name some...

Anyway, GLOCK offered 2 Pistols in a Random Drawing , one for Volunteers & and one for attendees ...

My number was chosen  Shocked  So I receive a voucher for a GLOCK....my choice any Caliber , any model,  Gen. 3 or Gen. 4

now there were some up charges ...
say Gen 3 none,  but Gen. 4  + $35.    
want Optics + $135
want  Comp. Model  + $ 235

I opted for the GLOCK 17 Gen. 4  = 9mm large frame so my out of pocket was $37.45 ( $35 + sale tax )

AS I said that was back in April.... They (GLOCK) tell you in small print on the order form ..it can take 20 weeks to receive your gun....
Reason being they don't stock AWARD GUNS cause of the varied options a winning recipient might want.

OK so 16 weeks go by, and my FFL calls ...your GLOCK is here  Cheesy  that was two days ago  Grin Grin paperwork done I walked out with my new GLOCK Tuesday ....

Never owned a Plastic gun ( well not since I was a kid ) this thing is KOOL !

Morning y'all.
Coffee and iced tea are ready.

Major 2, did it come with 3 mags at no extra charge?

'Tis 60 and sunny. "Sunny in the morning  then partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers in the afternoon. Patchy fog in the morning. Highs in the lower 80s. Northeast wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent."

Morning all, coffee is on, and going fast. Long day yesterday, swapping the genny. Drove an hour plus to Macon, wait and wait on the "helpful" HF staff to get around to us. When they are getting to us, they drop a bombshell- There is a $120 "restocking fee". Say WHAT??? They claim that a restocking fee may apply to all returns. In the 7 years we have been doing this, there was never a restocking fee, because the item was not going to be restocked. Well, there goes the money to get a new 1 year extended warranty with it. I argue a bit, give up, and take the new genny and leave the store.

But, it ain't over yet! I call customer service, and wait... and wait... and go around the corner to Subway for lunch while I'm waiting. Just as I get my sammich, the support guy answers the phone. He says that the new manager was wrong to charge me, and will get the District Manager on it. After eating, I go back to the store, and in my booming voice, announce that I just got off the phone. I also accuse the Manager of either being an idiot, or trying to take home my $120. I got my money back, and a new warranty.

Sometimes, the little guy wins one Smiley

I hear there is a new western movie coming out.  The story line is some 21st Century folks are transported back through time into the old west.  They have with them Glocks, AR's and assault type shotguns.  Maybe there will be a new category coming??   Wink

Kewl, but it's still a plastic gun.  Roll Eyes Wink

On the way home yesterday, there were some crows in the road. All but one flew away. I straddled it so I wouldn't run it over with a tire. After I drove past where it was, I couldn't see it in my mirrors. As I was walking out of verk tonight, I saw a wing hanging down from under the Beast. It was stuck in the front suspension.  Roll Eyes

I think once you run all three mags thru a couple times you will decide to keep it.  Once you disassemble and clean it a couple times you'll find it easy to maintain. Easy on the lube. Arcey showed me the trick to break down. He loved Glocks. 
I carry my G22 Gen 3 for work two extra mags and one more in door panel of  jeep.

I traded a rifle for the Glock... i tried to talk the trader out of it, he insisted it is what he wanted. I recently traded one for a AR and i read at another forum he traded it for a Lancaster patterened rifle.  I have just out right sold some for the lack of money and trying to do the adult.
 thing.  Still got some to sell and get rid of before i go. Some i might trade.  Life us short, i haven't shot every gun

Morning all.

I've been on top of a mountain all week, "getting trained."  Basically, I sat on a stool and listened to the radio while watching for smoke.  Yesterday was my first solo day.  It went well enough.  There was only one smoke in my reporting zone, but my sister-tower across the valley got it called in before I did.  Roll Eyes

Today is my day off, then I'm on a six day week starting tomorrow.  Hello overtime.  Grin
I'm going to take my dog for a good long walk now.
