I am writing this after seeing how a friend has evolved after the school shooting. They have school age children. They are a liberal Democrat, but have always been open about supporting gun rights and the 2nd Amendment. Now however they seem to be against owning guns. They also apparently don't think educators should be armed either.

This got me to thinking about the school issue. We all know America is a land of choices. Albeit they seem to be getting legislated to fewer choices....

Unusual weekend

Wow, finally got around to trying to shoot a used Marlin model 60 I bought about 6 yrs ago. Yeah I know 6 years is a long time but I have weapons that I haven't fired in 30 years. Jam-a-matic. Reason being some previous owner had disassembled it and put it back together wrong. The ejector spring was not in the right place. Got it correctly assembled now.

Thankful for a few days off from work. Thankful for still having a decent job. Thankful for health and the well being of my family.

Found some time to do some reloading for the next GSSF season. Couldn't make one outdoor match this year, due to work and family commitments. Down from around 6-9 matches per year. Hope I can get to shoot my usual outdoor matches this year.

Wishing all out there well.
