I am back!

A big thanks to my brother who moderated the comments. I would not have been able to turn on auto-moderation because of the sheer amount of spam the blog has been getting over the past week.

If you have emailed me while I was away, expect a delay in getting a reply. My inbox is packed with emails wanting a reply.

Random Thought: I was shooting earlier today … I can never decide if I like the taste of the mucous, burnt power and lead that collects at the back of my throat when shooting. I think overall I enjoy the “nostalgic” taste. It brings back memories of other times I have been shooting and those are usually good memories.

    Ahh…delicious Lead Styphnate and Carbonized Copper! The Copper tastes like and smells like a fresh nose bleed, and the Lead tastes and smell like… Lead Poisoning.

    That’s a pretty random thought indeed.

    Bah you, Steve. I haven’t been shooting in weeks. I have an outdoor range on my property and the weather has either been unseasonably freezing, or warm but raining.

    That’s alright though…I got four new toys yesterday and I’ll be cleaning them up all week. The next time the weather lets up it’s going to be one heck of a day at the range!
