They serve, they lead and they, in the case of the President, draw together, mediate and arbitrate others who serve.

Politics & RKBA / Do Elected Officials "Govern"?
« Last post by alfsauve on Yesterday at 10:11:48 AM »
My take away from the new conference (7/10) was this short sentence.

Quote
"I think I am the best qualified -- I know -- I believe I'm the best qualified to govern," Biden said.

My way of thinking is that kings govern.  Military juntas govern.  Xi Jinping governs China.  Kim Jong Un governs N. Korea.  In a democratic republic shouldn't the leaders "serve" the people?

This may be one of the core problems with having so many career politicians, who think they're "in charge."   In charge of our lives. In charge of the economy.  In charge of our health.  In charge of every aspect of our lives.  Am I the only one feeling uncomfortable with this statement?

Alf that is really, really kewl.  I like it.

You should patent it.  Quietly.  Maybe.  Check with TAB about how his aquarium creation ended up being mass produced by the ChiComs. 

Maybe you can sell the idea to a company here before the ChiComs get wind of it?

So you've just made up a boat load of 9mm and now to chamber check them.  Get out you handy-dandy 50 round checker and stuff it with the new rounds.
But how do you get the rounds from checker to storage box without dumping them out then re-stuffing them by hand? 

[Picture 1]

First you need to not only dump them out but turn the over.   Enter the super-duper-not-patented-yet-chamber-checker-flipper.

[Picture 2]

Put the flipper on top of the checker invert and there you have it.  All the rounds neatly, safely removed from the checker and inverted.

[Picture3]

But still how get them down to the  smaller size of the storage block?  Enter the large-to-small-matrix.

Fits over the flipper block and has angled passageways.

[Picture 4a & b]

Set the storage block on top.  Flip it over and shake it a little (it's not perfect but I've spent way to much time on it as is)

VOILA!    Ready to stuff in the box.    Thinking of calling it the,  GrobenAufKleinMater

Jersey Mike's Bacon Chicken Ranch cheesesteak. This is the first UNSAT I've had from them in a long time... probably because it was delivery, when I go in for pickup they always take very good care of me.

How hard is it to read and understand "NO LETTUCE, NO TOMATO"?

Local steel match Sunday.  Shot PCCI, so I was NOT LAST place.  Basically didn't gain any time.  Trying to move PCCI from B to A classification.  It was oppressive.  Not so much the temperature but the humidity and the lack of breeze.  All my practice should have helped but I'll blame it on conditions.  Did win my division.  First out of one entry for PCCI.  Did beat 9 of the 13 CO shooters and the LTD, Production and Open shooters.  It is a local match so not a lot of Masters to compete against.

The Ruger PC-9 had been doubling, and tripling, like I had a bump stock.  I should keep a log book of changes, but I finally figured out I had replaced the hammer and trigger with ones from M-Carbo.  Could be the cut of the sear, or the placement of the pivot pins or the disconnector pin or the sear pin on the trigger.  I put the originals, at I think they were the originals, in.  Ran a 100 rounds indoors with no malfunction and ran the whole match (6 stages) without incident.  I've notice M-Carbo no longer offers the hammer and I think in one of my searches there was a complaint about it, but I can't find it now.   I think I'll put the MCarbo trigger back in along with the Volquartzen trigger spring and see if the problem reappears.

But so much for PCCI for now.  Got to put in time with Revo for IDPA Nationals next month.  Gosh I think it's been 3 or 4 months since I shot IDPA.  Got to remember how to do that.
