A new tack...

Since I spend so much time either at work#1, or the gunshop, or maintaining my humble home, or simply resting... there's been a dearth of content to write about here.

So, I'm changing things a bit. I dragged out my old Olympus D100 (I'll let someone else write about what that means) 1.3mp camera and put a fresh CRV3 in it.

1.3MP doesn't inspire a lot of confidence, but I used this camera a long time before i replaced it. There's no zoom and the color map is kind of funky, but it'll work for what I'm planning:

I'm taking it to the gunshop. When something unusual comes along, by god, I'm taking photos with something better than the FuzzMaster (phonecam).

A sample, although hastily composed with the first gun I could reach in the safe.

That took a bit of processing, but it's passable, and much better than I'd get out of the cellphone.

Why gun posts have been scarce...

Too many days like... I'll let the photo speak for itself.

And if anyone with a vested interest is watching, I carefully reviewed that to ensure that there's no useful data whatsoever.

At least it's finally *the* holidays and I have several days off. I will however be at the gun shop... for one of the things I truly do hate about retail, zero opportunities for leading and trailing days off around a holiday.

Oh look, a gun post :)

Unfortunately, it's along the lines of "Oh God, why!"

Apologies for the horrible phone-cam pictures, but then... do you really want more detail?

(Honestly, the pistol I can kind of respect... the color and name, not so much.)

More distractions...

I only did this here because I'm seeing all the blogspot folk do it and I'm sure nobody there sees my other blogs...

Free IQ Test Score - Free Online IQ Test

By the way, the damn thing will ask you 50 million times to do surveys and other spammables after the test. Be sure you feed it false info, but it apparently checks to make sure that street names exist in cities.

As far as the test goes, not bad for 4 hours of sleep.

Unfortunately, this is not a gun post. Fortunately, it's just a photo-dump of what I've been working on for the last several weeks that's been keeping me off blogspot.

I'm not going to bother describing each and every photo, you can figure out what's going on. The chassis is marked 1936, a Fairbanks-Morse model 8A four band radio.

I'm trying to make this post collapsible, bear with me while I figure it out.

EDIT: Screw it, you'll just have to deal.
