Romy mag
Painted orange
Bolt face is a vinyl rub on (thanks Classic Rocks)
Clear matte coats.

Somebody do a mag dump for me .

Damn Rog, that sucks. Hope you heal up quick!

I'm sure the mag is fine and whoever ends up with it will be quite happy.

Where you at least having fun? Or working?

The day before i was BBQing at my girlfriends granddaughter 3rd b-day party. Woke up in extreme pain. So far no diagnosis waiting to get an MRI.
So much red tape and run-around . Staying positive though

That's pretty weird, hopefully it sorts itself out. Sometimes it just happens
in your sleep.

Prayers that it's simple and over quick!

Getting close now!

Couple of FYI'S....

Make sure you bring bug spray or whatever for chiggers and ticks. They are pretty bad this year and we will be getting down in the grass quite a bit both Friday and Saturday.

Also, make sure you have sunscreen.

The weather here has been unseasonably hot and hunid so far. We have been seeing temps 15 - 20 degrees above normal since late May. Not sure if that will hold until our shoot but keep an eye on the weather. Plan to dress appropriately and start drinking plenty of water now. If you wait to hydrate until you get there, it's too little too late. I will have plenty of water onsite over the weekend for us.

Know your limitations and don't push yourselves too hard. We will be out in the sun A LOT! If you need to go take a break and get out of the heat - do it. We're out there to have fun, not casualties.

Time will be a factor in the scores for most of the matches this time around. Those matches will have an allotted time increment based on average times for similar matches we have done before. Shooters coming in under that allotted time will be rewarded with bonus points while shooters that exceed the allotted time will receive a points penalty.

The bonus/penalty will not outweigh accurate shooting but it will discourage guys from taking a long time to take the perfect shot. Likewise, it will discourage someone from trying to run the course as fast as they can without taking calculated shots. Like I said, bring your A-game!!!!

Hmmm, might be a good idea for me to pick up some kind of floppy hat to shade my face holes. Or maybe hire someone to hold an umbrella shade over me the entire time.

I'll make sure he takes it. He is dropping off my WASR2 also and picking up his targets. It is gonna be a busy day for him. We are trying to make some time to get his stuff dialed in, but not having much success.
There is no way I could make it. My surgery is giving me fits and have been pissing blood two days now. The hits keep comin'!

Eeeesh, Friday1. Sounds like you got it bad. Hope you start doing better soon.

I wonder if BCP will be coming down with similar symptoms?!

The shuttle price is getting bumped up to $15 per person. I'll update the info up top.

Let me know if you are NO LONGER interested in taking the shuttle to the brewery.

Hoping that you're doing better very soon.

The shoe ain't happy, neither are the kids.

My dog knows I am hurtin'. He won't let me outa his sight. Just vegetating the last couple of days.

Now we're cookin' with gas. Spent last night in the ER. They determined I have an infected kidney. Probably happened during surgery. Talk about some pain and blood. Was like pissing red paint! New drugs are working and the pain is down from 7-9 to about a 3. Urologist and regular doc both got an earful today. They are very helpful now. Fortunately, I already had the camera make its painful journey to my kidneys and didn't have that shit again. Glad all this happened at home and not on the road somewhere.

Glad you are feeling better.

Didn't last long though. Went to the ER about 8pm and just got home. Same thing. This time they did a CAT scan. They think I passed a kidney stone. Tonight's event was more painful than last night. They used liquid painkiller instead of perkoset. I hate that stuff. The liquid is dispensed in the fluid line. Time for bed. Hafta make up a bug out bag for the hospital run every night.

That would be the kidney stone they said you didn't have, right?

Yeah it appears the stone I didn't have is there. That is some painful shit and nothing you can do about it. I've been CAT scanned twice, camera up the dick once and they missed it each time.

I'm merely hoping for a nice, cooling breeze! Fun meter gonna be pegged for this one.

I plan on bringing a few extra items for trade: some Romy mag pouches, hand made items, extra stocks, etc, and whatever else I can think of for,show & tell. Anybody looking for something special? I can always use 7mm & 8mm Mauser brass, 30-06 brass, powder, loose bullets, primers, scopes, rings, mounts, etc. Parts kits, too.

Well now, doesn't that just about suck?

I'm sure you have an incredibly good reason but sucks just the same.

E-mail or text me your addy and I'll get your shirts to you.
