Now & Zen

Okay, I was supposed to spend the rest of Sunday afternoon installing a new toilet in the master bathroom...instead I nuked a vegetarian enchilada and spent the dinner hour installing the new Green Mountain barrel with its set of Williams Fire Sights on my Ruger 10/22 Target. It's going to be my Limited rifle for this year's Ruger Rimfire series. The rifle now balances perfectly...and it looks way cool! I'll stick some pictures in this post tomorrow AM. I fired a couple of rounds through it to make sure it was ejecting, and if I'm lucky and work like a busy little beaver tomorrow I'll take it to the range for an hour or so.

I'm still at a loss on my Limited pistol. Part of me thinks a build with the new Volquartsen frames would be just ducky; then I think about the Mark III Competition I've got down in the safe; Suddenly a little voice says, "1911 conversion unit...1911 conversion unit..." As you know my Sweetie appropriated my Tac-Sol 1911 Kimber and proceeded to shoot it very well. She also took my purple aluminum grips to replace the scrimshawed, amazingly tasteless faux-ivories originally on the Tac-Sol. I've got an STI Trojan .40 1911 I haven't shot in years, and it has a sweet trigger. Hmmmmmmmmmmm...

We're planning on filming one of the big Wild Bunch matches for SHOOTING GALLERY Season 13... Not sure which one yet. Be fun to shoot one seriously, since I didn't last year. We also got such good response from the IDPA Worlds that I'm thinking of something IDPA-ish for next season as well. 

My neighbors tell me there's a mountain lion in the neighborhood...little early for amorous lions, but I'll pay extra attention, lest Alf the Wonder Beagle end up an h'orderve.

Tomorrow, no matter what, the podcast and the toilet! I'll try not to get them mixed up.....and BTW, the enchilada tasted like garden mulch rolled into an old newspaper. The Old Speckled Hen was good, though...gotta love a beer named for a rusted-out Brit sports car...

Michael, I hope you don't spend too much time on the toilet...after that enchilada.

I was going it say "epic fail," because it should have been carnitas. But then I saw after the Android jump that you were working with guns.

It sounds like you need some of those "critter cams" to keep track of just who is lurking about your property!
