Weerd: Spent a lot of time calling politicians and following our Assault Weapons Debacle.   Unfortunately the AG sent her advisory letter the Wednesday of the Republican National Convention, then left for the Democrat National Convention.    Meanwhile the Mass Legislature was scrambling to take action but the session ended on Saturday July 30th, and most of the final day was taken up by debating the budget….so it’s likely up to the courts, with hopefully a clarification letter from the AG that might let me take possession of my M17s

The other week I did take a well-needed trip to the range.  Brought the Walther P38...and it didn’t run.  Turned out it was dry as a bone.   Took it out again and it cycled good, but I had a TON of double feeds which is a nightmare  to clear with a gun with a heel release.    I tore down the magazine and cleaned some fouling out of body, but I haven’t tested it.

Also brought my CZ 82 and  the Radom P64 thanks to our Commie gun show.   The P64 is a horrible gun, but man it really is fun to shoot.

Drink Segment: So I got my hands on a pound of very ripe Jalapenos,  and there is NO way I’ll eat them all before they go bad,   and recently I had a martini made with Jalapeno vodka, simple syrup and lime juice.    So I’m doing an infusion.   I’m using Everclear because the alcohol will dehydrate anything soaking in it, so the proofage will be only about 80 or 90 when I’m done.   I have about 10 peppers split between 3 mason jars, and filled with Everclear and put in a cool dark place.      After 3 days I strained out the peppers and put it in an old vodka bottle for consumption.
