A likely excuse...

NRAhab is making noises about having to go to some far-off city to watch his favorite NASCAR team play a rubber of cricket or something tomorrow, but I think the real reason he punkt out of the bowling pin match tomorrow morning is because it is going to be as cold as... well, let's just say there won't be any brass monkeys running around at Marion County Fish & Game... and he's not dumb as a stump, like certain others of us that are going to be there regardless.

I was gonna have a pistol class, but it got rescheduled. Now I see it's going to be 34 with a 10 mph wind.

I'm not so upset about it anymore.

There's still an IDPA match though...

I'm bringing LOTS of hand warmers and toe warmers. If it gets so cold that the primers fail, I MAY pack it in.

If I was there, I'd be there.
My Colt works just fine in cold weather, and I have all kinds of on board built in insulation :-)

I having too much fun breaking farm tractors or I would be there. Cold or not, as it is I have to run to Kokomo to pick more parts.

Maybe one of these days I'll get to play with all the cool kids instead of feeding my Agco parts 'heroin' habit.

All The Best,

Hate to kill the smack-talk, but ahab's still gonna be outside. Purdue don't play in a dome.

They also don't play at 0800. ;)

I get to cop out of my IDPA match due to some miffed pectoral/ shoulder muscle thing. I could brave it though, but I don't think the boys would appreciate me shooting a match with me zoned out on Vicodin. Oh well there is always next week!

I tried shooting yesterday with my gloves on. I need different gloves -- the GI leather w/polypropylene inserts are toasty, but too bulky. Can't get the trigger finger where it needs to be quickly.

Yeah, but I was outside at 0900 making fire. God it was cold there. People drinking beer at 0930 when it's 25 degrees out are WEIRD.
