Just realized after I bring a group of engineers down for range time tomorrow I'm gonna have a bunch of guns to clean.

Really nice morning at the range with my former boss. Gent that was the Colonel I worked for. We had been talking, he mentioned that he had not been shooting in ages, and he had a P-38 that was his dad's that he wanted to test.

Picked him up this morning, with a trunk full of handguns, rifles and ammo, and took him out to my range. We stripped and lubed the P-38, and ran about 50 rounds thru it. Shot a bit of everything, he likes my ParaOrdnance .45, had a great time with my .17 HMR. We had been shooting some rifles with 4 power scopes, handed him the .17 with a 24 power- looked thru it, just said Whoa! That target just got closer!

In between shooting we shot the breeze, recalling old friends and earlier times. A VERY good morning.

I'll clean them for you in exchange for a plane ticket to Louisiana...

Yeah but buying a new gun isn't going to clean all those dirty ones.
