Morning all.

.

Of course, there's the tactics argument and all that, but we're a cowboy shooting forum, not Quantico. ::)

that is a very valid point .... I carry a wheel gun just for that very reason it is my most familiar .... point pull bang

but I'm becoming adept with Semi auto enough to carry in my pocket

I hate it when that happens!   ;D

I bought the lower and and it's part kit on a whim last winter. Finally put it together a couple of months ago, with an A-2 buttstock I got on sale from Midway. Probably gonna order an upper from PSA soon, bugs me to have "half a gun" laying around, not able to shoot!

Well I lost some more hearing tonight, I was on the phone, somebody ran up the doggy steps at about 90mph and barked right in my ear, grabbed my finger and gave me the impression that Rita had fell in the well since there is no Timmy here.

Well I filled him and he showed me his water dish was empty, demanding little cuss.

He figured out the touch lamp last night and turned it on as it was getting dark.

Gopher Grease who some of you know moved back in the are last week and stopped by to see him.  Watched him for a few minutes and said "that dog will hunt."  I done figured that out so I'm going to get traing gest and start on that.  Don't know if I can much anymore, but we are going to give it a go.  Need to get the tirus trap out, been about 10 years since I worked out with the 870, got a 5 gallon bucket of 28ga practice loads and stuff to make more.  Been thinking I need to get at it again, used to be damn good bordering on awsome with it.😉

Speaking of weather  ::)  here we go again Tropical Storm Dorian ( soon to Hurricane Dorian ) presently has Florida in its sights .
Hopefully it will stay off shore or if it does hit the coast will be diminished to a TS or rain event .

Cant take a chance though, stocking up on Bottled water , and other a sundries.

Good luck there major. Do you have permanent outside shutters on your windows, or do you just board over?

We have a fire burning in my neck of the woods. 200 acres at current, but it's in the grass, and winds are picking up. Looks to be going the other direction though.

Scored a old Oak desk chair off FB market, very nice, usable as is, a refinish project for this winter.  Probably replace the metal casters, but save them. 

Still looking for the desk to refinish, want on of those plain oak ones like the teachers used to have, will refinish to match.

Passed on a couple, nice and priced right, but in Omaha, if I don't find one local I'll travel for one.

Do what you need to do, never dealt with one of those and  not likey to.


Went to Dr today, hip is better, got more drugs and got PT  scheduled for Tuesday. 

Kinda on a do things one day rest the next, rest day is today, Riley likes that.

Will do some today, cooked a ham the other day,  sealed and froze the left over big chunks, boiled bone and scraps yesterday, making pease porridge today to eat and freeze.

Split pea and ham for you who don't know Old English.😉

Might be a good lunch next year at the Muster.

I'll overnight ship a kite to you, if you need one.

Currently 62 in Billings. That fire jumped to 2000 acres, with homes threatened. 0% containment. It's still on the outskirts of town, so I'm not in any danger here yet. But I poured some extra gas in the cars, and have important documents stacked and ready to grab should the need arise.

something to consider...A Hurricane is a tropical cyclone ....WE at least get several days to prepare ( some don't but that is on them, can fix stupid )

a Tornado is also a cyclone , and maybe only minutes to duck & seek cover .....

regardless in either case someone is going to lose a mobile home !

2.6 miles wide is the record width for a tornado though.

The big one south of us is 2004 was 2.5 miles wide and was on the ground 90 some minutes and traveled 55 miles
