Ric, I don’t know what I would do if I retired. They let me come in late and leave early so there is only a bit of set up and take down that I have to do.

The show that I’m headed for this Sunday is a little different because its my show. I’ll have 3 factory guys and 3 of our guys my boss included to help with set up and beak down. I rent a 10’ cube van for this one for the sample and some grid rack and my boss brings 30’ of wall displays. Pretty easy set up there.

I think the only thing I like about this compooter (work) is the size of the screen.

Started at 23 this AM. May get to low 30s.

Skip's a salesman, so he loves to talk, and he's good at it too. I enjoyed talking to him when I met him. Skip probably looks at it like I look at the KCR machine gun shoot. Twice a year I get to visit with a bunch of guys I've known for years. Each time I meet more people that I enjoy talking to and share the same interest with. Some of them I see more often than others, and I'm sure a bunch of them see each other at other shows and shoots. It's kinda like a family reunion, except you get to pick your family.

So Scrummy, does this mean some fox hunting? The coyotes have pushed most of the foxes out of my area:(

Sadly I doubt I can let off even my .22lr with a moderator and subs literally 6 ft from the wall of our apartment…

 

Scrummy

Good morning all!

It's Friday and thank goodness for that! Overcast and 44F on the way to 49F. Might see if I can get to the range this weekend.

Okay then buy a drumset and bang away loudly.  When they complain play nice.  After that they probably won't even notice a suppressed rifle bark.... Wink

Mornin gents.

Be careful with your vitamins. I just added B3 (niacine) to my list. It,s a quality time released pill that I started taking, because the cheap pills can cause you to turn flush, and cause other problems.
Well I took my first one last night (one a day). Then I took another one this morning along with a B12. about 45 minutes later, my eyes started to itch, then my arms, then my face, neck, and body. I started to feel hot. I asked Mrs. BF if my face was red. She told me I looked like I had a bad sunburn. Then I knew I had a vitamin B overdose. Now I'm all itchy and twitchy, and I look like a native American, and 22 degrees feels like 60. I kinda like it.

Snow on the way.

I'm sure Scrummy is the type of person that would not hunt out of season or in areas where it's not allowed.

We could always smuggle a couple of yotes over there, and see what happens in a couple of decades.

Here we'd just use an air gun cause they aren't considered a firearm

Morning folks,

How was everyone’s weekend? We finally got the bathroom guys out and they are done. Now looks good to be fair, been rather a marathon but that’s every room in the house done.

Between 2017 and Jan 2019 we’ve got married, been on honey moon, another holiday and redone every room in the flat. Now time to rebuild the finances a bit.

Spent Sunday re-arranging the house a bit so canned the range session but feels good to be a bit more organised.

Now, foxes, little madam was out this morning again.

My 16” barrelled Brno Model-2 with a moderator with subsonic ammo doesn’t bark, loudest sound is the firing pin clicking or the bullet strike. Drumkit "conditioning" does sound interesting though ;)

Not seasons on foxes old boy, more land owner permission and not having the Armed Response Unit rock up! I like the idea of a few ‘yotes for the challenge, but I feel the sheep farmers might not!

That’s one option but the air rifle I have has a 12ft/lb muzzle energy limit (You can get more powerful ones but needs to go on a firearms certificate


It’s a gorgeous day here, bright sunshine currently 45 and on the way to 49.

Good morning folks,

How goes today? Overcast, 41F and on the way to 50F so not wonderful weather.

Just the daily grind here, plotting what to do this weekend. Not sure whether to hunt this weekend or do the range thing.


Have a good time at the Show, Skip!

Scrummy

Mornin gents.

Overcast and apt to stay that way. Started at 29, and might go to 38 today. It's winter in Ky..

Got the generator home from the repair shop yesterday. They say bad weather may be coming in this  weekend, so I feel a little better now.
Sounds like Skip and Bud may be in for some hard weather this weekend. If nothing else, it's supposed to get cold. May just get cold with snow showers here, but it's going to be that colder than the hair on a polar bear's ass here, and that's too cold for this old man.

Amen BF. Anything below 30 gets me frigid. We had a little dusting of snow last night. I can handle more cold when it's sunny. Cold, damp, cloudy / foggy, drizzly just sux.

Not only does Ed need to get his priorities in order, he needs to reevaluate his wardrobe needs. Come on Ed, do you really need winter clothes for Antarctica in Texas?

Hello folks, funny sort of day here, work has had me all over the show.

Rather overcast here, should be a cold snap tomorrow.
