Speaking of Planning

I expect to shoot zombies or something Friday night, barring the unforeseeable.

Update: Or maybe TF2. See if I can't get one of the Engineer unlocks, maybe.

Woke up, fell out of bed, etc.

Did not have time to grab a cup, however.

I overslept by nearly two hours this morning, which made me a little more frantic than usual on the way out the door. Only a little, as my morning schedule allows for about an hour to an hour-and-a-half of oversleeping without serious consequences.

On the other hand, my glasses fell apart this morning, so I'm wearing my previous pair instead. Prescription's pretty close, but I'll have to arrange something this weekend to replace the primary pair.

Oh, and I'm picking up 1.25 guns afternoon. Well, 3 stripped receivers, two of which have a grip and buttstock. I'm a little early. Pics/details tonight or later this week.

Michael Bane wrote about Merwin-Hulbert revolvers about a week ago. I'm kind of intrigued. I'm not sure I'm $1200 intrigued, but who knows?

Less Stressed Out Now.

Apparently, two hours of zombie killin' on Monday night was darned cathartic.

Brief Range Notes 
2009.04.20 09:42 - Guns, Browning Hi-Power, Zombie Preparedness
I went to the indoor range yesterday, sending two magazines through the Hi-Power, and four or five through the Sig Mosquito. I did all my shooting yesterday at ten feet, which is very close.

The Mosquito is my newest gun, actually, and its major virtues are that it is chambered in .22LR and mostly looks and feels like a gun chambered for 9x19mm or something. It had some feeding and ejection difficulties, but not until the second or third magazine, so it may just have been dirt, or the inexpensive ammo.

I started off with the Hi-Power, though, and managed to make my entire day by putting a half-dozen or so close enough together that the holes touched. This is a gun that rattles when shaken, with magazines that still have rust on them, despite my best efforts. It is my favorite gun. Well. Hard call between the HP, the Mateba and the Garand, but easily my favorite Browning-pattern autoloading pistol. And, when it's all cleaned up, it's even pretty, as such things go.
