Wow. 2 days.
Quick, quick, is the Montgomery County government closed? That’s the one that matters to ME! :-D
Damn, been trying to get ATF curio and relic today,
trying to find out what to do with a deceased friends
And Obama wants to have the GOP over for health care tea and cookies to save his sinking butt.
YEA SURE !
Four day weekend.
Too bad it can’t snow until 2012.
Four days safe from “our” government.
Which is their C&R forum might have some advice for you.
(or you could sell them to me, cheap. LOL)
Two and a half days. They had a four hour early dismissal Friday due to the snow.
I remember when Gingrich and the boys threatened to shut down the government back in the 90s. It took the maggots in the “media” about 30 seconds to find some liberal piggie whose “grandmother in Italy was dying”. Supposedly, the whole world was going to come to an end if he didn’t get his passport stamped. It’s a good thing grandma croaked before this storm hit.
Yellow snow cone ping!
The Rove-Cheney Weather Control Machine...Rove, you magnificent bastard!!!! LOL
“(or you could sell them to me, cheap. LOL)”
Sorry, that was rude of me.
I seriously wonder if I will make it in to work at all this week.
My husband is driving me crazy—he needs to go to work, like NOW
Drat. Montgomery County government will be open.
Not rude, I hope she will give me at least one,
we were friends and both started our collections
at the same time. we had lots of fun working
on them and trying to come up with new items.
Also need to know what to do
for my collection should any thing happen to me.
We were having lunch last week and he had a stroke
at the table, we got him to hospital and thought
he would be ok, but he had several more and was gone.
Nice collection, not many Nagants which is what
I collect, but a nice M-42 swede Sniper with scope
and case, a Zouave, an FR-8, and all manner of mausers.
Will miss him calling me and saying , “Guess what
Can you imagine the embarassment, the pain, the destruction of self esteem?
Can you imagine the suffering?
Can you imagine being a federal employee and being told you are not essential and not to report today?
Will harm or good or neither come to us from a two day hiatus of politics and paper pushing?
I hope not. The three feet of snow we got this weekend shut everything down and I can not even imagine what twelve feet more will do.
Mosins for me too. With Mausers in reserve. I find that the price of one mauser will equal 2 or more mosins. I’d post a pic but photobucket seems to be acting up for me tonite.
Do you think G-d might let it keep snowing there until about June if we pray hard enough? ;)
The Pew Charitable Trusts should offer a huge cash reward for the best snow statue. Perhaps the treasury department could ask Kinko’s to run off a few hundred thousand extra bankruptcy anticipation notes for the lucky winner. Maybe the labor department would count this as part of the “employed”.
Collect mostly Finns, 91s, 27s, etc.
Used to get them fairly cheap but not
so much now.
MY favorite is a 1927 Tikka 91 with a heavy barrel,
love to shoot it and quite accurate too.
finns are cool. the owner of http://gunsnammo.com has some nice ones
How long has it been since the feds were closed two days in a row?
Ak Polish underfolder.
Yugo sks 59/66
Ak m-65 built as bullpup.
Aks made to ATF spects on commercial receivers.
Have you shot the 44 at night yet?
I have one that the barrel had to be shortened by two
inches because of bore wear.
It throws out a fireball about three feet in diameter!
I like the SKS. Wood and iron rule
The seat of power of the world’s preeminent superpower made incapacitated by a simple snowstorm.
While brave men and women fight and die in inhospitable lands, the Federal government takes a “snow day”.
(Although, not having them “working” does not mean they’re not still metastasizing)
Someday I will shoot the m44 at nite. no venue for it right now. I’d like to see my m95 Steyr carbine at nite sometime, too.
(what’s left of) our liberty and property are safe for another day or so...
