UPS

I had to ship the stock and action of my Citori back to Browning due to the asshole that owned it before me had plugged the access to the stock screw.
Took it to UPS to box and ship.
"Oh, gun part, we can't ship that".
They sent me twenty miles to their 'shipping hub'.
Sign on the locked door read "hours 8 to 4.30".
Knocked, no one home. (1:20pm)
Took it to FEDEX and a nice young lady said it will leave today.
$48.74 included insurance to $660.00
Now I just hope Browning fixes it.
It was made in 1974 and I've had it ten years with at least 100 rounds a week through it.
Who knows if it has ever been apart.
Made 'em good back in the day...heh.

CCW renew

New rules state that you have to qualify with every gun on your permit.
Guess who had his head in his arse and didn't bring holsters..yeah that guy.
Thinking it was all "Low ready, Shoot", I was not ready for "Man with a knife, draw and two shots".
Borrowed a kydex holster for the CZ, right handed of course, as Mom made me lefty...sigh.
Luckily, we shot fifty rounds on the first gun, and only twelve each on the others.
So I got the pretend draw down. I got that goin' for me.

Take a kid shootin'.

Kinda cool...'24 Dodge

Pulled in to get fuel and this pulled in next to me.
Dirty, sorta rusty, mostly original, but it sounded like it had an overhead engine.
