Its raining, I want to go shooting, I am sad
« on: January 16, 2019, 01:27:43 PM »
It's raining, I'm at work, I want to go shooting, I am sad.

That's it. Got a brand spanking new to me Texan .257 sitting in the shop. Beckons to me every time I walk by.

Why is it only Wednesday?

Whine...

Cry baby! Work hard, work long, and one day you'll be like a lot of us—retired. Then you'll be complaining about not having funds to buy new toys, even used ones.

We had right inches of snow last weekend. We may get eight inches of snow this weekend. Where I live, that is a LOT of snow.  But we are men, we suck it up and move on!

Yep I yam a cry baby.  I have worked hard for so damned long, I'm tired.  But I have one kid in High School, and one in Middle School. I'll be working until I'm pushing up daisies.

They are talking 4 feet of snow tonight in the Sierras. They are also warning about extreme danger of avalanches.  We have a river of water overhead...

Wettest dang year I've seen around here.  The media here is going nuts because this weekend it's going to get to a blizzard cold of 30°. Stupid news channels.

It hasn't been all that long ago, that Johnny Carson quipped... "If it's yellow, let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down!" Talk about feast or famine?

I'm with Steve...I've got a serious jones to try Ricky's cast slugs but the storms have got me pinned down. Last night I had no power and the since my house is located between two creek beds/treelines it sounded like a freight train outside with the wind and rain. From an outdoors standpoint I might try to go get some shrimp tonight on the mud flats at low tide to stockpile for sturgeon bait. Rivers are at flood stage so no steelhead for a while. Hopefully we get a weather window on Sunday to shoot Ricky's ammo and Steve's new Texan. And if not, we'll do it another day. Luxury problems.

Hey, go shoot, wear raingear and galoshes, (or waders) it's not that cold with this rain. The guns won't melt either.
I was in the duck blind from 5 am till 3 pm yesterday with wind-driven rain most the whole time up the valley. The guys with me left around noon though.
Got home last night and tore my A5 down to dry it out and oil it down. Along with another A5 I took out to make sure it goes pop since I just repaired it last week. Most everything I brought out there is scattered around the woodstove drying out. And O is resting up for Saturday.
If you lived in Washington you wouldn't get outside much.
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Grinding out a living on the farm.

Just so you guys think you're the only ones...

It started to blow here today, and at the height of the windstorm, the gusts were up to 50 mph! Imagine try to hold off over 100 inches at a 100 yard target?

Here it is after 6 as I write this, and the average is still over 15 mph.
