    So, are you going to have twelve months straight of mud or snow this year? Is that normal?

    Another perpetual motion machine?
    Have you considered getting a backup power supply?

    Really not that critical......there IS, however, a backup for the coffee pot......

    Prehensile or regular?
    Percolated or drip?
    Decaf or regular?

    regular, not smart enough to have a prehensile......
    Percolator (not Mr.Coffee!) there's a Bunn commercial on standby:alex:

    the coffee is a 50/50 mix, I refuse to drink total decaf, but my ice tea is decaf (Luzianne) great tea, don't get bitter ;)

    Doggie sitting this weekend, grand-dog Max is here right now, Mike, Kelly & grandkids are gone camping, took new puppy with them, Max is a chihauauauauaua about 12 yrs. old, likes Aunties lap ! And enjoys full run of the place.

    That dog sounds smart enough to be the center of attention. Likely he even knows the mouse is new, making him the top of the pet hierarchy (since the sheep aren't allowed in the house).
    We've got that rare cloudy 94 degree weather. The neighbors cat looked about dead, so I put a sandwich bag filled with ice on top of her. She figured it out pretty quick and did her best not to knock it out of place.

    Cats usually try their best to tolerate humans, but they DO appreciate competent staff.
    You will probably find an extra 1/2 a mouse in the pay envelope next week....

    Yeah, Max has the system figured out, even appreciates the A/C ! He does let us know when he needs to go out, but as hot as it is, he's also real quick to head back in !

    Ditto with the A/C. It's on 24/7 for the next week or so.

    I took Junior to the range today. I had him shoot the Ruger .357 wit .38 Specials to cure that flinch he gave himself last year when he was a little too eager to shoot a 1911. He put up several really good groups before fatiguing.

    I put a couple of jaw dropping tight groups with the LC9. And then, just like Junior, I fatigued and the groups went to pot. Testing the new 9 shot magazine I got on exchange was my goal. It seems like it twisted out of the gun when firing. :burn: My second defective magazine for this gun. :steamed:
    On a bright note, with .38 Special wadcutters, the Redhawk put seven out of eight rounds through practically the same hole. There was one pesky flyer.

    Just finished turning a 28" shotgun into an 18 1/2" for a customer. My only shooting in the last 3 months has been test-firing the gunsmith work :(
    5' away into the berm for function isn't my idea of fun. I'm damn sure that the prairie dogs ain't heard of "covid 19" !


    Gotta go the the Lab in the AM, new Dr. wants blood work done.
    So I go early, the morning vampire is CUTE !

    Did you ask for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle band aid? You can wear that like a badge of honor for the whole day.

    we seem to have dropped off the radar again......not sure what happened.

    No, no TMNT band-aid, small cotton ball & duct-tape
    Busy day at shop, went really fast, enough work in back room so I didn't have to deal with customers ;) Drank coffee & fixed guns all day.
    Did stop for lunch thou:eat:

    Ditto with the rain. We got a rare summer thunderstorm last night. It was over eighty degrees outside at 4:00 AM and raining which is really weird for here. Hot and humid for a few hours and the lawn got rained on and turned brown all in the same 100 degree day.
    Meanwhile, my Match Champion suddenly comes up where the cylinder will only rotate on two cylinders. The rest bind. Maybe I bent something ejecting some sticky rounds. :brickwall: It's a pisser because I bought it thinking it was a durable overbuilt revolver.

    That's really strange, they ARE built like a tank. How sticky were they ? Did you need a soft hammer to tap them out ?
    First thing I would check would be to make sure that all the threaded connections in the cyl. assy. are tight.:headscratch:If something gets loose, operating clearances go away & things get tight.

    I was able to eject them with the ejector.

    I don't see anything to tighten in the cylinder assembly itself.


    At 4:22 in the video below, he mis-aligns the hammer strut and mainspring and the gun behaves like mine does.

    But you didn't have yours apart, did you ?

    I know the GP comes apart mostly like a RedHawk.

    There's always the knowledge that I am better at taking things apart that I am at putting them back together that causes me to procrastinate. Well, that and a natural tendency to become distracted by other projects that don't have so many fiddly bits.

    The projects with the "fiddy bits" are always the best ones......they let me IGNORE everything else until I'm done ! ;)
