Guns: I’ve been talking with Robert at RTG Parts about swapping out the 8.5” Barrel on Puff to a 12.7” Barrel they carry, he said it is above my skill set and has recommended some HK gunsmiths for me to use, so tabled that for now.

Moved my library into the bunker out of the bedroom, I’ve been condensing my ammo down from boxes in cans to loose ammo in cans freeing up more ammo cans and labeling.

Comedy Corner

You might be a gun nut if:

-If your local gunsmith calls you for obsolete parts...

-If you homeschool and use ballistic tables for math lessons...

-If your gun safe is bigger than your refrigerator...

-If you call Brownells and they recognize your voice...

-If you own reloading dies for calibers that you do not shoot...

-If you understand Smith and Wesson's model numbers...

-If you ever bought two different brands of the same bullet just to see which one "shot better"...

-If watching the Lion King gives you the itch for a .470 Nitro...

-If you cut out your best groups and carry them in your wallet like photos...

-If you've ever gone to a gun show three times in one month, and were excited every time...

-If you feel that a golf course is a willful and deliberate misuse of a perfectly good rifle range…(Like Rockcastle)

-If your brass tumbler used to be a small cement mixers.

-If you identify the gun on the cover of Dillon's Blue Press before you notice the girl...

Bible Verse

Work as the redeemed.

23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. 25 For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.

Colossians 3:23-25 ESV

Cleveland Police respond to the Taco Bell after a would-be robber was shot and killed by employees  (Fox 8)

Armed employees at a Cleveland Taco Bell shot and killed a would-be robber early Wednesday, police said.

Police responded to the store in the city's Edgewater neighborhood shortly before 3 a.m. and found the suspect suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The unidentified man was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.

A second suspect fled the scene.

Investigators say five Taco Bell employees were in the store when the suspects came in wearing masks and ordered them to get on the ground. Three of the employees opened fire, striking the suspect.

Police said no arrests had been made.

In a statement, Taco Bell said the company was offering counseling to the restaurant workers and was cooperating with the investigation.
