Found Its Way Into Your Safe

Get a Mossberg 500 or 590.  I've got a 500A  that was beat to hell when I bought it and I've used and abused it more and it just keeps rolling. 

 

One of these days I need to refinish it where it rusted as it sat in the shed while we were building our house.  Kept having nasty looking stray dogs show up and I can't carry to work to I dropped the cheapest thing I had in the shed to keep on site...

Really leaning towards a maverick now. The drawbacks of the Remington but less than 200 new shipped with everything but the 12 lop stock. It will be a straight beater gun and doesn't need to be pretty just run.

Found a 1960s Franchi autoloader on gunbroker that might to the trick after the barrel is cut down. Beautiful firearm that deserves better but hell its value is almost gone because of a fixed choke anyway

Slide getting fitted for the Burris now. 

I pushed Glock sight out of the old slide and put it in backwards to blackout the sight. I can shoot it better that way

Unpacked my big black friday order from IMA last night.  The Martini I could probably spray down with CLP and shoot immediately if I wanted.  The Enfield is going to need a little work but is mostly sound it seems.  The Brown Bess, well old Bess is gonna need a lotta work, including a new stock.  Old one was so worm eaten it was falling apart in my hands nearly.

And I also figured out that my first Martini pattern A had been bastardized with a bunch of Francotte parts.  Think I'm gonna take it and rebarrel in 303.

303 Brit is a greatly undervalued round. 

 

The glock project is in the books. The Burris fast fire 2 plate is done and lined out. It's the first glock I have ever been able to shoot with accuracy and I am not going to mess with it unless something breaks. It was an old range gun with 10,000 plus rounds through it before I got it cheap. The slide was crack and needed to be replaced so I did an RMR slide, TTI master glock kit, cleaned everything else and ran it. 

 

I have moved up to a C93 (HK clone) to remake and get running right as a range toy now. 

I want the range toys of 2018 to be:

Custom savage axis 308

Semi Custom Glock 19

Centry C93 rebuilt

unkown tacticool shotgun

 

That covers the carbine, bolt gun, pistol and riot gun.

Got my Nepalese Mark IV Martini Henry cleaned up this weekend.  Just need a rear sight spring and a screw that was corroded beyond saving, a couple minor stock repairs and a good coat of Kramers to be done.  I think I coulda spent a week straight sweating yak grease out of the thing....

Bought a barreled receiver and  a romanian kit.   Thought ill try my hand at assembling.   Little grinding here and there   polished the trigger group from the feel of it after polishing it has a 1/4" pull 2 lb trigger,    she is ready for test fire.  Then ill tear it down and coat the metal. 

Looks like appliance epoxy is very popular  but i still have some gun kote in Satin black and coyote.   Already have  a satin black one.  Still deciding

      Only defense with a woman is a fart. You won’t get the last word. That only makes it last till a cop arrests you. Forget whoopin ass. Cops again. Doesn’t matter if her argument is flawed. She will stick with it till the cops come. She will chew you till you fart. Once the fart is set free she will immediately stop. She will stare. Then she will ask a dumb question. “Did you fart?”  Excuse me but a fart is universally understood in any language. Then she will say “I can’t believe you just did that!”  You smile glancing for the dog. Then she will turn and as while walking to another room say “You are so gross!”  At that moment she isn’t bitching at you anymore.

      Pay her back by wearing her panties and put her bras in the dryer after washing.
