Ramblin'

Ya know, when a a guy like me gets to around three score and a lotta change we tend to see the end of the road a little clearer.
Better get yer shit together my lawyer and doc tell me.
About the only thing I really regret would be if I go down before she does.
I have been her caretaker/bud/hand holder for almost eight years now and I worry what will happen to her if I go first.

California-
Must renew my CCW next month.
1. $52 to the state, up again from last time.
2. $35 to the city, up again.
3. Retake a class that I teach.
4. All this for a two year license.

Diesel tax has gone up $.20 a gal.
2018 I will have to sign a bunch of forms and pay more tax to buy ammo for guns that are outlawed.

I think I'll become an outlaw

So far, I'm doing ok in spite of smoking for 62 years and whisky for the first 58 of those.
Five years in service, 50 in construction, thirty shooting without earpro, I can barely hear.
Can't see the front sights anymore, had to change everything to atomic doodads.
Hands are still steady though. A ground squirrel at 500 yards blows up just fine.

All in all I can't bitch. Had a good life.
Worked in the trades from a shovel to CEO.
Married way over my head to good ladies. Lost the first one after 30+ years to a bad heart and have had 20 fun years with the Bride.

Looking back at the shit I've done from racing to scuba to flying to getting shot at, It's not been boring.

Still wish I was an outlaw in Texas though.

Y'all have a nice day tomorrow and call your mom...even if she's gone.

3-Gun

Shot one round of 3-gun this morning at Lemoore Sportsmens Club.
I would have been better off sleeping in, gah!
Rifle was OK, pistol was so-so, shotgun was terrible.
Easy set too, no running.
I'll get 'em next time. Riiight.

A little reloading

Reloaded 5 boxes of AA trap loads for next Sunday.
11/8 of 7.5 in a Clay Buster shot cup over 17.4gr of Red Dot in AA super sport hulls.

100 of ........223 in new Lapua brass, 55gr Berry's fmjbt over 25.4 of Varget.
200 .357 mag with Win brass and 158gr Hornaday XTP over 13.4gr of Unique.
I had to check the cylinder gap on the S&W 686 after a trip to an indoor range.
The gap fire went to both walls..heh.

About 75 and clear here, nice day.
The bride is holding her own, which is good.

WTF is Trump appointing a open border Obama asshole to head Customs and BP for?
The troops (including a grand nephew) hate the guy. Not good.

Y'all be careful out there.

Reloading boolits an' chot


Sorry 'bout the pic.

I like Berger at around 2550fps.


Gonna try them for the first time.


Some of my Lapua brass has got some miles on them so I looked up Midway and they want $.75 a piece. Are you chitin'me!!!?
Oh well, could be worse, Kali wants us to register and buy a permit for ammo soon.
Gotta stock up on components....sigh.
Y'all be safe.
