Thanks! No BP, but the substitutes are available in the usual places.

Heavy storm in Phoenix last night prevented the first shipment of guns from showing up to us today. Maybe tomorrow.

BP substitutes are not BP. There is nothing about them that is even as good as BP, let alone better - unless you count being available as better.

I didn't say it was better, but it's on the shelf at the local gun store and it makes the gun go bang....at least it does in mine.

Took the youngest to the range after church.  His first time shooting an M-1 Carbine; he seemed to enjoy it.  Then cheeseburgers and ice cream.

Shot the '51 Navy this morning. Due to the extreme fire hazard we've had all summer, today was the first day for safe shooting, after lots of rain. Still tuning the Colt. Today setting the front sight side ways and also did some gentle filing on the loading lever catch to ensure the lever to stay put under recoil.

Making hummingbird food right now. About to pour down buckets outside, and I have to go to work pretty soon.

Just finished slicing 6 pounds of spiced coffee bacon and vacuum packing it in 1-lb. packs.

I think I speak for most of us, when I request a review of how that bacon turns out. "Spiced Coffee" sounds fantastic.

Glad it's a new day.  Been a rough week.  Funeral on Wednesday for my cousin's 38 year old son.  Yesterday we buried my youngest son's 16 year old best friend.

Hug your kids if you can.

My sympathy goes out to you and your family Dave.   I have been through similar circumstances.   Time and family are the only things that help.

Phoned in some maximum bids yesterday. Waiting/watching to see if I win anything. The first gun on my list went for $125 more than my bid!
