    I guess it’s the season to do other things. I cut the grass yesterday, so I could play today. Currently at a car show in Dighton; had to break out my portable shade. Hope you all are enjoying whatever ever you’re doing at the moment.

    The red and white 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Custom Catalina. Sometimes my wife’s 1967 Frost Turquoise Mustang. We’re selling it as she doesn’t drive anymore, so I do to put a few miles on it and keep things loose.

    My surgery is scheduled for February; I have to wait a year after my heart attack this past January.

    We need a summer postal match to spice things up.

    On June 28, 1942 the Nazis started Case Blue, their push to the Caucasus culminating in the Battle of Stalingrad.

    Maybe Mausers vs. Mosins?

    I think that would be fun or summer league but seperate the main battle rifles
    “Summer Mosin/russian guns”
    “Summer Mauser/German guns”
    Summer x,y,z maybe stick to the larger players?
    USA,UK,Russian,Japan, German?
    Theres lots of countries that over lap with. Their service rifles.

    That’s Luigi in his matching number stock; CMP Italian return Winchester. With my health issues, I sit at the bench with the lead elbow On the table. This was only the third rifle I’ve shot since my January heart attack. The Remington ammunition was two or three years old; bought from a NES member last year. I actually did a little better than shown; most of the 4th magazine was in the white at 11:00; heat haze off the barrel. Started low right.

    man how things have changed, when i was a kid dad would be telling us to get ready for some shootn and fishn boys.
    that ment get as much ammo into the "tool" box and get the fishing gear out and ready. Miss those days where there was not much to do other than play baseball, shoot or fish.

    Theres just not much out there right now.
    No one is letting go of anything I guess right now.
    I picked up a 1950s SW chief special and a type 99 ....not really nice specimens but cheap enough to grab.
