Are you shitting me?

Have you ever wondered who first uttered the phrase: “Are You Shittin’ Me?”
Well, it just so happens to have originated through the Father of Our country, way back when George Washington was crossing the Delaware river with his troops.
There were 33 (remember this number) in Washington’s boat. It was extremely dark and storming furiously and the water was tossing them about.
Finally, Washington grabbed Corporal Peters (remember this name) and stationed him at the front of the boat with a lantern.
Corporal Peters, through driving rain and cold, continued swinging the lantern back and forth, back and forth.
Then a big gust of wind and a wave hit and threw Corporal Peters and his lantern into the Delaware. Washington and his troops searched for nearly an hour trying to find Corporal Peters, but to no avail. All of them reached the other shore.
Sometime later, Washington and his troops landed on the other side, wet and totally exhausted.
Another hour later, one of his men said, ‘General, I see lights ahead.’ They trudged toward the lights and came upon a huge house.
What they didn’t know was that this was a house of ill repute, hidden in the forest to serve all who came.
General Washington pounded on the door, his men crowding around him.
The door swung open, and much to his surprise stood a beautiful woman.
A huge smile came across her face, to see so many men standing there.
Washington was the first to speak, ‘Madam, I am General George Washington and these are my men. We are tired, wet, exhausted, and desperately need warmth and comfort.’
Again, the Madam looked at all the men standing there, and with a broad smile on her face, said, ‘Well, General, you have come to the right place.
We can surely give you warmth and comfort.
How many men do you have?’
Washington replied, ‘Well, Madam, there are 32 of us without Peters .’
And the Madam said, “Are You Shittin’ Me?”
And there you finally have the answer.
Thanks, Ed C

Sometimes I just don't get it. (I'm a little dense sometimes..er,most times)
Why are we putting on a full court press, with a carrier group, in Syria over shaky evidence of Assad gassing some folks?
We did the same to our own folks, Waco, and nobody cared.
I voted for DJT because he promised we wouldn't be the worlds police.
If we are at war, kill 'em all and end it. If not, end it.
I know, dense.

Think I'll go to the range....sigh.

100 yard range day

Had it all to myself...kool.
Took a few different. 308 Savage, S&W 15 with extended pad, custom AR, 10-22.
The Acutrigger on the Savage malfed 2 out of 3 times, the scope mount on the AR had to be retightened after two mags, and the 10-22 had a hard time going into battery....sigh.
Back to the shop for a work party.
That's why we go to the range. To find out things.

New reloader

My grandson was watching me reload .308 today, and asked if I would teach him how.
Scraped together some parts,

using new Lapua cases.
I figure that if I make him to be very anal about how I like it done, then let him shoot them, he will appreciate accurate loads.
