Evening Y'all, been busy these last couple of weeks getting things ready for the autumn clean up and this week getting ready for our SASS State championship,Heluva Rukus. I shot a match last Sunday as a tune up and was happy with my times for the most part.I found a problem with one of my new to me Bisley Vaquero's that was fixed as soon as I got home.The previous owner installed the hand springs in backwards and when it got dirty it was jamming up the cylinder hand and not rotating the cylinder. I did manage to shoot a clean match despite the problem and will try to replicate that the Rukus. Y'all be good and stay safe,I'll give a report when I get back once I've recuperated from the match.
Respectfully,Major E.A. Sterner

Got an event this weekend, got about 25 of the cooking group on FB coming to RCS, probably gain weight.

Hip doing better, Rita bought a new/old office desk for her, going to have Lexi's dad and one of his friends help get it in the basement and they agreed to load my pickup so I don't have to carry stuff up.

I know we shouldn't spoil the dog too much, but he hadn't been for a ride since Monday and
he wanted to go, kept wanting to go out the front door and then just stared at the car.  Went down the street and back so he's now happy.😂

I don't care, nobody can say I'm mean to him.

I think the dog was just showing is bravery by riding with the old coot.


Morning Coffee is up... little rain yesterday. Now hot and humid... so nothing new for weather.

Feed store run in a little bit. Including stop for dog food.

Morning all.

Currently 55 and sunny in Billings. Rained all day yesterday, but supposed to stay sunny through the weekend now.

Have classes in the morning, then this afternoon I'm just going to relax and take a nap. Sleep hasn't been in my vocabulary past week.

Del, when my dog would get antsy but I didn't want to walk her, we would drive around the block. That would satisfy her for a while.

Right now in Sun City Center, Florida the temp is 92 degrees with a heat index of 100. Tomorrow morning the low in Burlington, Wisconsin will be 49 degrees. Quite a difference!

My wife and I have adjusted to Florida's hot and humid weather surprisingly well. We  go to the pool early each morning. The weather is gorgeous for a few hours with temps around 75 to 78. When we go go out later in the day it's hot, but we know we have nice weather to look forward to in the morning.

Just read the info on Tropical storms, they say it will remain east of us. More rainless days. To be seen?

Morning all.

Warm and sunny in Billings today. We're heading to Bozeman for the weekend, just to get one last trip in before winter.

Someone got my girlfriend's car last night while I was in the store. Local PD won't touch it though because it was on private property and there isn't a plate number. Oh well.

It got to around 45 last night in Bozeman.  Then hit 95 in Billings.

Back home in Billings now after spending the night in Bozeman. My girlfriend got me an introduction flight in a helicopter, and then we drove around the town and looked around.

Now I'm off to work for tonight.

Verked today. Monthly system outage

Cleaning the 1893 Marlin which I shot yesterday working on a load. Someone cleaned it from the muzzle with a metal rod for over 100 years. So, the crown is not good. It shoots smokeless jacketed bullets fine, but not cast smokeless or black powder.  :(

You going to recrown it yourself? Larry Potterfield has a video on it. It did not look too difficult what I
remember.
What caliber is it?
