Friday, May 13, 2005

In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of “word for the day”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of the day”; in a sentence. The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.


Dodgeball Day!

Subbie Slip has given her whip, handcuffs and legcuffs to xs today.

The rest of the stuff is locked up in my drawer. I’m just letting all the new students know that we behave as if we were ladies and gentlemen in here. Those two words “as if” can get you an A if you make the subbie laugh.

What would you do with the pickup-truck-snowplow?

Dunno - wait for a really bad storm in VA, and sell it for a fortune?

Yeah, I found one up on the ridge line. It was hillarious! Circular drive, concrete pond, 2nd floor foyer - I was completely beverly hillbillies! I mean, I laughed - that ain't a house, it's an airport!

$600 k

Yep, I saw it. Brit routinely slaps the libs on the panel around quite handily. Juan Williams is Brit's favorite punching bag.

Juan - absent today - must have scored a new bag of Acapulco Gold and spent an Algore weekend, conjuring up new paranoid theories on how the Bush family wants to dominate the world...

Ahh rust belt liberals. I swear their slogan is "raise my taxes, but just make sure they don't move in"

You betcha!!! I am, at the moment, working on a very nice example of toolmaking and machining, based on a '98 Mauser action. Currently I am using a Rem700 action in .30.06 with a Kreiger Barrel and BR stock ( I enjoy the handloading of the .30-06 instead of more "exotic" BR cartridges... I also enjoy shooting the AR-15 with the H-BAR (1:7 twist) using the 80 gr VLD bullet. Since, by necessity, the 80 gr bullet is longer than the magazine, but fits the military chamber for 5.56mm NATO (but not, however the civilian ,223 Rem chamber) and pne uses a fixed mag follower just to lock the bolt back, one has, essential a BR firearm, since mine has the free-float bbl, adjustable trigger, etc, and has been tightened up by gwmoore engineering. There is something inherently appealing to an engineer about handloading and BR shooting, I think it's the "quest after the ultimate" with the chronographing, and the changing of reloading parameters on the spot that brings out the interest.

This being said, since I also own a Garand, in ,30.06, you begin to see the pix... I like that caliber. Good then, good now. I never could see the reasoning behind the .308 (7.62 NATO) Why waste that great .5" of case capacity that you, conceivably, might need (NO I dont, but someone might)....
