Did you get any of this storm that we are supposed to have over the next 36
hours? Blizzard warnings are up, prediction is for excess of 16 inches of
dry snow. Talking about 3-4 inch's of snow per hour, winds are supposed to
be 50-60mph at the height of the storm. Seeing as it is supposed to end late
Sunday afternoon I think we might wait until it stops rather than going with
it. It will be deep but light so the trucks should move it okay.
We didn't get much at all. Just got done driving the lots and there's maybe
a half inch on them. I got one account that's "very" picky so I'll go leave
tracks on their lot before they open but that's it. Last weekend we got
about an inch or two of slush during the day that froze right away so there
wasn't much to do for that.
Got another toy last week...a Yugoslav sks. Do I have to tell you what a
bitch it is to get cosmoline cleaned off??? I found that the jet washer at
the shop does a good job getting the worst of it off. Then while everything
is still warm, using a blow gun will blow out all the nooks and crannys. The
bore had a lot of copper fouling that a good soaking with Butches boreshine
took out. There is some rust pitting in the lands but it's shootable. I'd be
pissed if my swift barrel looked like this but I guess I'm not real picky
with this one. I put about 15 rounds thru it this afternoon and it works.
Don't know how accurate it is yet. I'll wait till I quit shivering to check
And just to piss me off, when I walked into the gun shop to get some ammo,
the guy looks up, smiles and tells me the black stainless that I wanted two
months ago but couldn't get is in. DAMN!!!! I had to ask about trading in my
stainless for it but we're still in the negotiating stages. <G>
Have fun with your snow!! I'm going back to bed...
We are getting hammered.
Like all plans, ours went on it's ass. The stuff is drifting, going to have
to stay with it for now. Going to try to hit again for the next few hours,
knock off for some food and see where we are. Maybe get a chance to see some
of the race that was postponed from yesterday. Think it is on at 4PM.
I went smaller. Bought a Walther PPKS, very accurate at 25 feet. Something
to play with I guess. Been useing the Sig 239 357 as a carry.
Here's one I didn't tell ya about. Had a round explode in the Sig 226.
Cartridge ruptured, blew half of the right grip off. I picked up some powder
burns but no big deal. Sent it to Sig for repairs last week.
Rounds don't just "explode". Did you happen to fire it into a squib round??
It's rare but maybe a crack in the chamber let go?? Anyways, glad to hear
you still have a hand hanging at the end of your arm. <G> Have you ever set
off a round that wasn't contained in a chamber?? You just get a little "pop"
and the bullet moves a couple of feet and the shell case blossoms out. I'm
really curious what Sig tells you about the gun. Have you heard anything
from them yet?? Were you using factory ammo or reloads??? Damn!!!
