I said "dude... what the **** is that?"

So I ended up taking it home and putting it back together. My first basket case. I'm feeling pretty impressed with myself.
I've seen the inside of my Taurus Model 66, NOT something I would suggest taking apart unless you know exactly how to put it back together. I'd be feeling pretty happy too if I was able to put one back together.

Maybe you should open up your own "Gun in a bag" repair shop.

Hey, I told him and every one else, to please, PLEASE bring me their guns. I like doing this sort of thing.

Just got home from Christmas Eve at my brothers. Sil made a great dinner, a little wine, (very little for me, 40 min drive),mom and dad on Skype from Az. to watch the kids open their presents. All in all a pretty good Christmas eve.

Merry Christmas to all of you and especially to all you guys and gals who get stuck working to keep the rest of us safe through the holidays.

The worst part about working Chrismas eve and day is finding something decent to eat for dinner. 20 minute wait at IHOP and 15-20 cars deep at the small handful of fast food joints that are open.

Convenience store chicken bisquit sandwich was the best I could do.

My old shift always cooked a meal and when things got slow we'd cover someone else's sector while they go grab their tray. But I transferred.

The new guys I'm working with..........

Hormel Chili Dogs in a crock pot.



....I think I just peed out of my butt.

That's when you bring some sort of leftovers from home, if possible.

Merry Christmas to y'all. I'll be one of those hunting some halfway decent food on the clock today too.
