  2. Shot qualifications for my Police Department Sunday. Most everybody shot one time, then exited left. I qualified with six different guns. Shot 100% with four of them, 98% with one and 96% with the other. This was my best qualification, with a S&W Model 10 round butt with 3" barrel. Course starts with 12 rounds at 25 yards, then 12 rounds at 15 yards, 14 rounds at 7 yards, and 12 rounds at 5 yards. Times go down as distance decreases. So, when I say "get off the lawn", I mean it

  3. We finally made it! This morning the Up the Creek Gang had our Grand Opening of our brand new cowboy town that many of you contributed toward (THANK YOU THAN YOU THANK YOU!) and we and our guest shooters had a blast! Below is a short video from this morning. It starts with a walk through of the town before the shoot and continues with one shooter shooting at each of 6 stages. I hope you enjoy the video and also that you will come join us. In addition to our twice a month matches (2nd and 4th Saturday of each month at 9am), our annual match, Bayou Blast, will be March 17 - 19, and here's a link to the schedule and registration form: https://www.upthecreekgang.com/bayou-blast-2023. There is a discount for early registration and registration is limited to 110 shooters. This is one shoot you don't want to miss!

  4. For many decades I have heard of that mythical Flash of Green at sunset. And long have I gazed at the horizon hoping to experience it. From the desert sands, to the ocean. From the hills and mountains I have waited patiently for old Sol so slowly sink while the golden light began to both fade and intensify as the moment of truth approached. Then tonight as I watched the life given star drop beyond the rage of the Earth north of the Abajo range. I saw it!! A brilliant green suddenly flashed across my retinas, a bit darker than the bright Kelly green I had been led to expect! But Green for sure!! Then I realized with sinking heart that the green flash was a mere reflection off the pickle I was eating. Oh well. The wait continues. Maybe tomorrow.

  5. Gal my wife used to work with has a grand daughter named Nora. I could make a REAL long post about all her health problems including a heart transplant and several near brushes with death. The latest was a 40 day stay in the hospital with a code blue that lasted a long time. Thought AGAIN that she was lost. She went home today. Lots of prayers answered. She just turned 5 years old. If you are so inclined please send up prayers for God's continued healing for this little girl. Personally I think He has some kinda great plan in store for her. Sus amigo, JHC

  6. Common sense is like deodorant. The people who need it the most never use it. My tolerance for idiots is extremely low these days. I used to have some immunity built up, but obviously there's a new strain out there. It’s not my age that bothers me; it’s the side effects. I’m not saying I’m old and worn out, but I make sure I’m nowhere near the curb on trash day. As I watch this generation try and rewrite our history, I’m sure of one thing: It will be misspelled and have no punctuation. As I’ve gotten older, people think I’ve become lazy.The truth is I’m just being more energy efficient. I haven't gotten anything done today. I've been in the Produce Department trying to open a stupid plastic bag. If you find yourself feeling useless, remember it took 20 years, trillions of dollars, and four presidents to replace the Taliban with the Taliban. Turns out that being a "senior" is mostly just googling how to do stuff. I want to be 18 again and ruin my life differently. I have new ideas. I put my scale in the bathroom corner and that's where the little liar will stay until it apologizes. My mind is like an internet browser. At least 19 open tabs, 3 of them are frozen, and I have no clue where the music is coming from. Hard to believe I once had a phone attached to a wall, and when it rang, I picked it up without knowing who was calling. She says I keep pushing her buttons. If that were true, I would have found mute by now. So you’ve been eating hot dogs and McChickens all your life, but you won’t take the vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it. Are you kidding me? There is no such thing as a grouchy old person. The truth is that once you get old, you stop being polite and start being honest

  7. Copied from elsewhere. A few English errors, I might not get them all. the Q was: How was almost an entire battalion lost near Severodon, Donetsk. Reply: Because they've been watched the entire time while they started preparing. A Ukrainian recon soldier noticed something 2 days before, and had drones and soldiers in the area watch and listen for everything. He even predicted the most likely space where they would cross, which they did. So they set up a trap, waited until half were across the river, then blew up the pontoon bridge with drones, and had artillery pick off the rest while drones filmed all of it. The Ukrainians knew where every Russian vehicle was at least 24h before they attempted to cross the river. They had 2 days to get artillery in place, everything was set up, and the Russians never knew. They had no clue they've been watched.

  13. First I find out from an e mail that I’m a skidillionaire Then I broke down and got that Rand hat. Stopped by the ranch store and got a hatband. (I’m afraid I might have swaggered a bit when I left) After lunch, while on the porch discussing with Earl whether or not to reshape the crown (He prefers a Gus), unexpectedly, the FedEx guy showed up with my new gitar . Drinks are still on me, Bottles.

  14. I can afford the hat now. Just got this email! ATTENTION:I am Mrs. Shirley biscar Head of Inspection Unit United Nations Inspection Agency in Harts field-Jackson International Airport Atlanta, Georgia. During our investigation, I discovered an abandoned shipment through a Diplomat from West Africa which was transferred from JF Kennedy Airport. To our facility here in Atlanta, and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in 2 Metal Trunk Boxes weighing approximately 242.508IBS each. The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the consignee as money rather it was declared as a personal Effect/classified document to either avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent or confiscation by the relevant authorities. The diplomat's inability to pay for Non Inspection fees among other things are the reason why the consignment is delayed and abandoned. By my assessment, each of the boxes contains about $50 million dollars. They are still left in the airport storage facility till today. The Consignments like I said are two metal trunk boxesI need all the guarantees that I can get from you before I can get involved in this project. Please reply so we can proceed and also with reconfirmation of your Full Name, Home Address, City, State and Telephone number.Sincerely,Mrs. Shirley biscarHead Officer-in-Charge,Administrative Service Inspection Unit.

  16. After a particularly hectic day, I told the wife I wanted "Mistakes Were Made" engraved on my headstone when I die. Without missing a beat, she quipped, "wasn't that on your birth certificate?"

  19. Many Russian soldiers are refusing another assignment to Ukraine and the worst punishment they can receive is being fired (discharged). If it was really a war punishment could be severe. Russian lawyers are helping refusers fight any charges. Odd that Putski hasn’t closed that loophole.

  21. "City leaders plan to have several meetings in the future about addressing gun violence and plan to bring national experts sometime this summer to advise them on what tools other cities are using to address gun violence." Let's start with putting criminals in prison.

  24. Yesterday at Red River Cowpokes annual Shootin For The Brand seven stage match on very first stage of our posse I was TO for a great guy and "relatively famous" shooter, Fast Finger Green shooting pistols and a seemingly obvious squib took place. Well at least I thought so, as did he. He grounded and finished stage. Unloading table officer reported that there was no squib and one spotter said from his position he indeed thought bullet made it out muzzle. I go to FFG and offer a reshoot for my "interference" in call. He accepted reshoot and commenced to shoot that stage and six more clean. (Me and SOG think he owes me $$ of course. ) Now Clean Match was certainly rewarding to FFG but there is more in congratulations for the day. At awards we also celebrated his 81st birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of my favorite shooters. For you who do not know Mr. Green, you should know if he is not enjoying his love for shooting SASS with his friends and adorable wife Annie Hickok, then quite possibly he is at his perhaps greater love of pickin the guitar. And, yes he is awesome at it, and has played with good share of greats (think Conway for starters). Come to CAC and see him playing with Reckon Crew and others.

  25. By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation Whereas, from the beginning of this Nation, law enforcement officers have played an important role in safeguarding the rights and freedoms which are guaranteed by the Constitution and in protecting the lives and property of our citizens; and Whereas, through constant application of new procedures and techniques, such officers are becoming more efficient in their enforcement of our laws; and Whereas it is important that our people know and understand the problems, duties, and responsibilities of their police departments and the necessity for cooperating with them in maintaining law and order; and Whereas it is fitting and proper that we express our gratitude for the dedicated service and courageous deeds of law enforcement officers and for the contributions they have made to the security and well-being of all our people; and Whereas, by a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962 (76 Stat. 676), the Congress has requested the President to designate May 15 of each year as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week during which such May 15 occurs as Police Week: Now, Therefore, I, John F. Kennedy, President of the United States of America, do hereby designate May 15, 1963, and May 15 of each succeeding year, as Peace Officers Memorial Day, in honor of those peace officers who, through their courageous deeds, have lost their lives or have become disabled in the performance of duty. I also designate the week of May 12 through May 18, 1963, and the calendar week during which May 15 occurs of each succeeding year, as Police Week, in recognition of the service given by the men and women who, night and day, protect us through enforcement of our laws. I invite State and local governments, patriotic, civic, and educational organizations, and the people of the United States generally, to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week in this year and each succeeding year with appropriate ceremonies in which all our people may join in commemorating law enforcement officers, past and present, who by their faithful and loyal devotion to their responsibilities have rendered a dedicated service to their communities, and, in so doing, have established for themselves an enviable and enduring reputation for preserving the rights and security of all citizens. In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States of America to be affixed. DONE at the City of Washington this fourth day of May in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and eighty-seventh. JOHN F. KENNEDY By the President: GEORGE W. BALL, Acting Secretary of State
