Window of opportunity slams shut.

So, I had about an hour and a half today that was mine....enough time to go to the range and try the new Wilson Combat flat wire kit and new WC magazine. Then *ring* "Hi, it's mom, thought I'd stop by...."

I know that sounds awful but #*!?%!.....

So instead of shooting now I get to go to a school fund raiser with my wife.
Oh the humanity.

Yeah...I got elected to "bid" on our table centerpiece....it was a candle in a jar!
It cost me $40. That's almost a hundred rounds of .45 acp. I left it on the table because it was basically a yard sale item.

Sure....it was for helping transgender Muslim bikers in the Ukraine.

Actually, it was for a school for kids with learning disabilities. My wife works with special needs kids and sponsored a table. But I would have paid twice as much to not sit through it. *And I could have been at the range*

Good causes can be so intrusive. It's bad enough they want our money (ok, I don't mind that) but they also take up good beer-drinking time.


Neighbor kid is a girl scout. She comes around to sell cookies. I give her $5 to go away. We're both happy. (She's actually a really good kid and sees the humor of my not wanting my belly to get larger.)

I did manage to sneak out to the range and just got back. The Wilson Combat flat wire spring and the new WC magazine worked great. I really didn't feel anything different with the spring, but it works just as well and I don't need a breakdown tool, so that's a win.
