You can customize this all you want, but it’s still a Hi-Point.

(Is there a new reality program called “Pimp My Handgun”?)

Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven and Fatwa!

I heard a rumor that Hollywood had it’s annual mutual masturbation ceremony last night. I’m sure somebody said something exceedingly stupid and somebody else tried to “raise awareness” of some cause or other.

I wonder if you could put a grenade launcher on that Hi-Point?

Hai, Sven and Paddy!

Buwahahahaha!

Just had breakfast with an old bass player friend from my San Francisco days who was passing through ATL, which was quite nice. Hadn’t laid eyes on one another for about twenty years, but we’ve stayed in touch. (We figured we’ve known one another in excess of 35 years; dates were computed in doddering old man fashion.) 🙂

I heard a rumor there was some sort of entertainment industry wank-fest last night. Meh.

I. Have. No. Words.

I wonder if the local Moscow Mohammedan “leaders” are going to express fears of a possible backlash like their scum-sucking counterparts here do?

Investigators immediately ordered a psychiatric test of the woman in a bid to understand her motives.

Criminy.

Afternoon greetin’s!
Fatwa, when you said you had breakfast with a bass player, my earworm started singing:
“Well, I woke up this morning and I had myself a beer”
I don’t know why.

I saw that Moscow decapitating nanny story. Yeah, words fail me, too.

Just got off the phone with Sis again, asking how we were. She said she forgot I said BW was going to be out of commission for awhile. Again, I went through the tooth pulling with her and that the bank is holding the check & we still have TM’s debts to pay off & clear the books before she gets her check. “Oh, I didn’t call about that”. Ha! I finally put BW on the phone so that she could repeat everything that I just said. Then it was “I called to see about your tooth recovery. Blarrgh.

The good news is that even though it is Monday, we are sunny, warm & windows open!
Hope y’all have a good rest o’ the day.

(POO-f)

Well, day two of my new job is almost over. At 9 am I got a skype message from my supervisor asking for some biographical info to share with the team.

At 10 am I got a link to the team meeting. I downloaded and installed the necessary software and joined the meeting.

At 10:30, when the meeting concluded, my supervisor said I didn’t need to attend the 11 am meeting and she would be in touch with me.

It’s now 3:30 and I’m still waiting to hear from her. 30 minutes until I no longer have to be available (until 8:30 tomorrow morning).

Paddy --

Did your supervisor say when she’d be in touch with you? 🙂

Just read that the Auto Mag is coming back:

http://www.thenewautomag.com/

(I hope their engineering and QC are better than the proofreading on their site.)

Hi, Fatwa!

No. No, she didn’t. I did get an email from her a few minutes after 4 saying that the day had gotten away from her and that she wanted me to cover some SAI classes (whatever those are), starting tomorrow. BTW, have I had any training on the software they use? No, I haven’t had any training (other than what I learned on my own, prior to the interview, but she doesn’t need to know about that), don’t know how they structure their classes, etc. Is there someone who I can talk to about setting up/accessing my email? Bottom line: we’re meeting at 10 tomorrow morning and she will get someone to train me on the software.

I’m beginning to think I work for the same company as Sven.

Hope that goes as well as it possibly can, Paddy.

Bestest online school evar!

I remember looking at the AMT AutoMag III’s back in the day (.30 Carbine) and thinking that could be fun to shoot.

Looking at pictures of their completed bolts, I’m not too impressed with the quality of the finish, especially the bolt face and one of the camming surfaces. Mac, I’m sure, could provide a better opinion.

Great, Paddy! We’ll be together making history at the bestest place ever.

Seriously, though, just hang in there. It’s bound to get better.

Rather funny about Trump and the “KKK? Never heard of it” incident that’s dogging him. Anything that throws a wrench in his wheels is fine by me.

And odd too, that the cable news guys don’t seem to be showing video of the KKK rally and stabbing in Anaheim over the weekend. I guess it doesnt fit the usual narrative.

There was a candlelight vigil and peace walk in Anaheim tonight, organized as a response to “KKK hate and violence”. I asked one person (on FB) if the peace walk would also address the violence of the mob that attacked the klansmen. That question was not well-received.

Mac -- I looked into the price of a used Automag (in .44 AMP), which marketing lists as their target price, and was shocked. The original, 1971-72 models, are considered collectors’ items and go for $4200 -- $6500. I don’t think there’s much room in that market space for a new/old pistol.
