So this is a thread to talk about the lack of threads?

And fwiw, I was bored enough to actually count them; it was 76, not 20 (off by 280%); and 11, not 3 (off by 266%).

Remember "daring" me to find anything incorrect or wrong that you've ever said...?

If civility is so difficult that you must spew insults, you should at least take the time to be accurate in the insults you DO spew.

Sorry Melvin, but some of us have been out competing in shooting competitions during the last 2 weeks, how about you, get to any sanctioned matches?

That's a valid point as well. There's a lot of other things in the world besides the internet.

In the last week, we've sold our house, donated a lot of things (groceries, clothes, you name it) to charities, put a buttload of equity in the bank, moved to our final county of residence (will start groundwork on the new house either next week or the week after, depending on weather), had a pretty good week of sales at work, gave each of our employees $100 gift cards to commemorate our business' 24th anniversary, received an award from the Rotary District Governor, had a nice visit with a young lady from Brazil that our Rotary club sponsored as an exchange student several years ago, and sweated off enough to take my belt in another notch. Also personally responded to two alarm calls; something I rarely do (like maybe "once a year' kind of rare usually), but due to unusual circumstances responded to two within the last 24 hours. One was the largest gun shop in the county, owned by a friend of mine. (Ever check out a building that you know is full of guns & ammunition, looking for an intruder? I did it before dawn today.) Also had new tires & brake work done on one of our service vehicles, and picked up a free 5-gallon bucket of cast-off wheelweights at the same time.

Almost forgot - I also finished watching 'Alias' on neftlix. Not a bad show actually.


Yep - "quiet, all right"; just a day in the life, so to speak...

Been the usual week around here, taking care of the lawn, cleaning the house, paying bills, all the krap that comes with home ownership. Thought about a few projects that need done. Will get done someday.
Took neighbors (FordPerfect) an family on a tour of the lake last evening. Nice an relaxing.
Did a little shooting, reloading, bought a couple guns.
Hey Garand, are those yours or wifes? When are you building a bigger room for all them?

Those are mine, unfortunately she only came home with one, plus we got a Certificate for the 2nd Best Dressed Couple at the Awards Dinner. Excuse the pictures they were taken with the wife's cell phone





So Melvin, has your wife entered any competitions yet?

Club Match, Saskatchewan May 2016, plus my wife and I shot the 9 day SASS US National Championship in Phoenix in March and in my category for one of the side matches I won a 3rd place belt buckle and I shot the 12 stage main match with no misses and was 1 of 54 people out of 826 shooters that was awarded the "Clean match" button you see on my hat. I have been shooting Cowboy action 19 years this year, I started just after I gave up IPSC , my wife has been shooting 6 years with 4 National matches under her belt. I have had a great year so far. How about you Melvin, what prizes or awards have you won this year?
