Broadening career prospects

Re-thinking a few career goals.  I may go back to graduate school for a masters in education and move to Oregon.  Maybe it’s all FUD, but CalPERS is scary business.  As a prospective state employee or a taxpayer, my desire to stick around is diminishing quick. In the meantime, check out the Automotive Museum photos […]

10 Day Agony

Those car museum pictures?  I’m sure I’ll have them up soon… In the mean time, I finally had the chance to drive out to JK Supply Co. to fill out the necessary paperwork to start my CA 10 day wait for the pistol I won at Gun Blogger Rendezvous. What did I win?  It’s a […]

Joseph Chester Fundraiser Shoot

I received this email at least a month in advance but neglected to pass it along.  Hopefully, some of you might be able to take advantage of this opportunity as I will not be attending.  I highly recommend LMS Defense for your training needs. Joseph Chester Fundraiser Shoot and Raffle In late August, 5 year […]

GBR Day 4

Not really day 4.  I decided to wake up early and eat breakfast with everyone before many of the other bloggers headed home.  I tagged along with David and Phil from Random Nuclear Strikes to the American Car Museum.  Very nifty cars.  I didn’t leave Reno until 7:30 PM.  I took a nap that was […]

GBR Day 3

I’ll write up a full summary regarding my experiences during GBR, but not now.  For now, the following is a short outline of day three. Went to the shooting range.  It was cold (You can tell from the photos that I have a poor tolerance against the cold).  I had a flippin’ blast shooting other […]

GBR Day 2

I’m tired.  I’ll write about it later. EDIT:  (Oct. 13th 2008) I added more photos.

GBR Day 1

So I made it to Reno, NV without a hitch.  I’m currently staying at the WorldMark Resort just down the street from Circus Circus.  Got to meet Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox for NRA’s official endorsement of John McCain and Sarah Palin for executive office.  I had a tasty buffalo burger at a BBQ resturant […]

Project Valour – IT

I should have kept track of the events unveiling over the past few weeks regarding GBR.  Hopefully, this will not fall on deaf ears since the timing is rather late. Beyond getting together and converse, Gun Blogger Rendevous is also about assisting others in need.  Extra funds gathered from this event will go towards a […]

Teaching others

I’ve introduced a few folks to shooting and I have always had a great time.  Most of these individuals I already knew, so it was pretty awesome when a local resident found my blog and took my offer to take him shooting.  He is the first and hopefully more will follow.  Here’s Donald’s account: It […]

Preparing for GBR

I know.  It’s been awhile.  I haven’t gone anywhere. I’ve been busy and lacking any motivation to write anything.  However, I will be attending the Gun Blogger Rendevous in full swing.  I’m packing a few selected booksticks and twigs for the fun about to commence in three days. I haven’t bought that scope I’ve been […]

Oh snap!

After Obama’s pick for VP, I felt that that the GOP (for the sake of nominating SCOTUS judges) had a good chance as long as McCain didn’t screw up his own VP choice.  He had me worried, but I woke up this morning to Alaska’s governor, Sarah Palin, chosen as McCain’s running mate.  I’m surprised, […]

Shooting my first reloads

The load was on the weaker side.  They shot well nonetheless.  All fed without a problem.  Two failed to lock back after the last round however.  I did use a chronograph, but I didn’t use it correctly – I’m going to have to go to a range where I have more room.  I think it’s […]

Official Olympic Hand Signals

NBC, the most fantastic broadcasting network there is, cracked the code on volleyball hand signals.  I would have never thought that deciphering such code could be so… stimulating.

Skimping on Tools?

Two things: 1.  I’m sorry to those who have requested measurements on certain firearms and seem to fall on deaf ears.  I was close (several times) to getting a $15 digital caliper from OSH, but I couldn’t stomach paying for an inexpensive, “precise” instrument when I have been reading otherwise. 2.  Those who have requested […]

Meeting people and the Second Amendment?

I suppose it’s much like talking about politics since it’s a topic that many feel strongly for or against – probably should be avoided.  Even those who are indifferent, I can’t imagine being the most effective instructor because of said situation. Being defensive about against abrasive views isn’t likely to help either.  Though it is […]

Bandwidth Exceeded at Photobucket

I was hoping it would’ve lasted for at least 3 weeks… 25 GB of pictures exceeded in 2 weeks. Don’t feel like switching and changing all of my URLs on my blog.  So I made the upgrade.

I can haz cheezeburger nao?

The wisdom teeth extraction wasn’t too bad.  There’s only minor pain; annoying, but nothing horrible.  The worst part about this experience is that I can’t enjoy solid foods.  Since Friday evening, it’s been soup, Ensure, Equate, pudding and baby food.  Oatmeal, right now, is considered to be a treat.  Where’s my damn cheeseburger?  This procedure […]
