  1. Many years ago, my aunt, uncle and another couple rented a lake cottage for a week. It rained for most of the time and was still raining when my aunt needed to use the outhouse. For some reason a woman cannot use the restroom by herself, so she had her friend go with her, maybe to hold the flashlight. My aunt was not a small woman, 300 plus lbs, and her friend was even larger. The rain had eroded what little ground was supporting the floorboards. Both of them dropped into the pit. Between the rain storm and the distance to the cottage their screams could not be heard. After about a half an h
  2. When I was in Catholic grade school, we had to sing in the church choir. The music nun told me to just “mouth” the words.
  3. If you are overheated too,grab the cold water to bring your core temperature down. If you are just dehydrated, the room temperature water is more easily absorbed.
  4. Disassembly is pretty straight forward. I partially drove out the pins holding both the sear bar and the hammer so that only the left side could be removed. There was a burr on the sear that I stoned smooth. Putting it back together was a little tougher. The hammer spring is pretty stout and must be compressed in order to line up the hole on the hammer. You have to compress the spring, line up the holes, and drive the pin back in all at the same time. After trying for 45 minutes, I took it to a gunsmith who put it back together in 5 minutes for $20. Well worth it. Thanks for the feedbac
  5. The most important phrase in any language, “Ubi est ballnium?” “ Where is the bathroom?”
  6. I just got one for Christmas. They do make a satisfying “thwack” when you hit something. I don’t think it will take down a shotgun plate though.
  7. Old age is creeping up on you if you remember when jeans came in only one length. All the kids had folded up cuffs. Your mother would yell at you if you let them drag on the ground. Did your mother make you put a dime in your "penny" loafers in case you had to make an emergency phone call?
  8. My favorite is one where Matt get taken advantage of because of his good nature. He goes out to a small ranch/farm to arrest the owner. The man says he will willingly go back but winter is coming and he needs to make sure that wife will be OK. He needs to weatherproof the house, split fire wood and enough other chores to fill the episode. And of course Matt is talked into helping him. The man knew he was innocent and had a good alibi but decided to play a little con game with Matt.
  9. Cheyenne Ranger and I had been shooting USPSA for about 10 years. He started talking about something new, cowboy shooting, he was trying and said that I might be interested. He kept after me for two years and said I should bring my wife out just to watch. When I got there people handed me guns, ammo and leather. It was FUN. I thought that there was no way my wife would go for four new guns and everything else I needed. But she was talking to the other wives about the big shoots and the fancy dresses. By the next month I had all the guns and leather. Thank you Cheyenne.
  10. What's on your mind?
