Thanks for the Coffee Slim...
Proffessor, i am shamefully unknowing of Skeeter Skeltons bullet. 


Been out and running already. ... returned keys to work, before day shift realized they were gone and starts calling people.  Then picked up feed for the critters. Of course i bought gas and a  breakfast sandwich enroute.

The rest of the day is dedicated to snacking and napping and the “Iron Bowl”...... WAR EAGLE

When you dry velveeta, it makes a decent weight to keep an empty trash bag from blowing away. Roll Eyes

Roo, I have a bag of that Black Rifle Coffee headed my way this week.  Should arrive Wednesday. I'll update you then.

I also have a new hammer spring coming in from Brownell's for my Beretta.  It's a D-spring, which I hope it will make the 92 a little easier on my stubby little fingers. Grin

I believe Skeeter's standard bullet was a 158-160gr hard cast Kieth style semi-wadcutter.

Evening all.

City trip was...eventful.  I have observed that in the period between Halloween and New Year, everybody on the road totally forgets how to drive.  I have dubbed this "Holiday Driving Sense Amnesia."  Symptoms include:
-Using the right turn signal, starting to turn right, then suddenly snapping to the left into oncoming traffic
-Cutting off trucks on the freeway in a downpour multiple times in a two minute period
-Parking in the exit at the strip mall (I still don't have any idea what was going on.  Some chick was parked at the stop sign at a strip mall and actively loading her groceries from the cart.)
-Backing the wrong direction down a one-way street
-Talking on two phones at once while driving in front of the county jail/Sheriff's office.
If you or a loved one is experiencing these symptoms, ask your common sense if driving is right for you.
 Roll Eyes
I got a (thin) steel, locking gun cabinet from Sportsman's Warehouse for $150, though.  Normal price was $230.  Holds 18 guns, has the option of a some shelves(at the expense of half its long gun capacity), and comes with two keys.  You could break into it with a stout screwdriver were you of a mind to, but it gets my $1300 rifle out from under the bed.  And hopefully it would be enough of a deterrence to a potential housebreaker to get him to leave it alone.
I also got a box of 5.56 ammoo for $3. Roll Eyes

sounds like a good deal!
If you line it or "clad" it in about an inch or so of drywall, that can provide some limited amount of fire resistance, and if one gets creative in hiding it, even better....

I agree with that plus lag bolt it the floor in a closet, or a room not readably  visible.


Thanks for the coffee ..

Start my weekend- wife came in around 1400 said she had 2 flat tires. To her that means she needs new tires. I said i would pump them up and take up the road and get them repaired. So i limped it down the hill to the hay shed where the Air Compressor resides. It is just a small Milwakie brand, for nailers etc. but will inflate tires if need too. Found the extension cord that at been removed and relocated. Powered it up and turned it on.  It cycled thru first fill abd shut off as it should. I found the proper implement to fill a tire attached it to hose. You know the cute little coiled up plastic ones. I gave it a tug to use it. When snap and the tank began draining. So shut it off and dug around in back of jeep and found wrenches and began stripping the connectors from the broken hose. I swear i replaced this one 2 summers ago. When i built the chicken house. Of course my air nailer blew it seal shortly after that and i since went to cordless crown and finish nailers. Back to the flat tires. It gets dark about 1630 around here this time of year. It is now 15:00, so i drive 5 miles up road to auto part store. Picked up a better quality hose, one fitting. Drive home and i begin repairs. First i assembled the ends on new hose and started compressor again. It finished cycling about same time i finished putting hose ends on. I then tried to snap the male end back in to the female connector on the compressor. It will not snap back to lock. I fussed with it and tried WD40, realizing here duct tape will not fix this. I remove it and back to parts store and bought another end. Back to the homestead now 1600. I change the end out and cycle air in to tank, inflate flat number 1 and then after a cycling of air inflated flat 2. Now 16:40. Too late to take to local tire shop for repairs. But the chickens have put them selves in and i closed their hatch 🐣 up for the night. Goats one in paticular is in heat and very voicestous i threw them a flake of hay. Then noticed Suzanne must have also.
Tomorrow i will pump the tires up again then drop the truck off up the road for repairs.
I start pulmonory rehab again tomorrow for the next 12 weeks. I have prayed on this and i think the Lord wants me to do this, he is not done with me yet. Then go with Suzanne to her weekly day time bowling league.  Then the tires should be repaired.

Some lessons from Roo's magnificent air adventure:

Cute little curly cue air hoses are marketed by a company that needs to sell you another one next year.

There are more than one style of air hose connector. Nobody knows why. They won't interchange.

For about $70, Wally Mart has an emergency jump starter with a compressor. I keep it in the trunk, and it has more than paid for itself.

We bought one for the church- for the golf carts they use for shuttling around the parking lots, of course and anyone that need a jump or air. I should get one around here. They are handy.


Thanks for the coffee Slim.


Off to town. Tires are holding good enough for the short trip.
