Just talked to my daughter and she tells me the fever broke and breathing is back to normal.
She tells me that her hospital [Palo Alto VA] is still very short on PPE.

Close to home

My daughter is a RN in  the Covid 19 unit a the Palo Alto VA.
Face masks are unavailable. She tested positive and is sick.
My grandaughter is a nurse at the Fresno VA.
She was told to wear the same mask everyday as there are no new ones.
Sec. Wilkie are you listening?
They both are ready to quit, along with a lot of their friends.

Cabin fever

Cleaned/oiled the guns, changed the oil on the truck, cleaned all of the bathrooms, dusted all of the hooch (nine times), washed all of the windows, planted flowers, read twelve books, reloaded enough ammo to take us through WW4, Netflix/Prime movies until sepeku is sounding like a better idea......sigh.

I have a Mossberg 930 as a backup and a 3-gun shottie.
As I was getting everything ready for the range I noticed the safety was broken. Put it on safe, pull the trigger, CLICK.
I took it to my 'smith and he called me back next day and said to send it to Mossberg as the stock has to be removed and to do that the oneway screw holding the selector on would get butchered.
He gave me a shipping box, I shelled out $47 to Fedex, and I get an email from Mossy telling me six to eight weeks. WTF?
Is that normal?
I have sent pistols to Ruger And got them fixed and back to me in a week.
