Still awake and typing out 3 papers due very soon but I can’t help but feel like my study area is ridiculously post-apocalyptic right now.
Since I’m still renovating my room, its a mess. Got ammo cans open with tools and parts sticking out of them. Clothes on chairs. An old dusty fold-up futon with an equally old dusty and dirty blanket since my actual bed has been moved.
Eating an early morning snack consisting of a tin of herring in Louisiana hot sauce and drinking warm bottled water. Room reeks of cosmoline (cause of my cousin’s Vz 54 stock) and chemicals since I was lubricating my RPK-74M (I forgot to mention that I got it back from the gunsmith), which is propped up against my dresser that has broken glass on top of it cause I accidentally swung my ax at the mirror on New Year’s eve.
Normally I’m very organized and some would say obsessively compulsive about things being neat and clean but I’ve been so busy with work and school that I haven’t had time to maintain order in my room.
The only things missing are the little campfire and a zombie or mutant horde making noises outside my window.
By Natalia Zinets and Alissa de Carbonnel KIEV/BALACLAVA, Ukraine (Reuters) - Ukraine mobilized for war on Sunday and Washington threatened to isolate Russia economically, after President Vladimir Putin declared he had the right to invade his neighbor, creating Moscow’s biggest confrontation with the West since the Cold War. “This is not a threat: this is actually the declaration of war to my country,” Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk, head of a pro-Western government that took power when Russian ally Viktor Yanukovich fled last week, said in English. Putin obtained permission from his parliament on Saturday to use military force to protect Russian citizens in Ukraine, spurning Western pleas not to intervene.
Not really one of my lengthy “Random rounds…” posts but a mini update of sorts.
Haven’t had time to really post as much, though some of you may not notice a difference. Some days I only manager 3 posts, other days I can squeeze in 10.
I’ve been really busy with college (again) and swamped with homework but at the same time I’ve also been working more days and longer shifts at work. I did however get a second job helping out at my local gun shop a few days out of the week. It’s extra money and I really don’t consider it work when I’m getting paid to be around guns.
I did also select the winner of the giveaway, but won’t announce who until later. Working on the final design and revisions which may actually be different from the logo submission that made me choose said follower.
Speaking of giveaways, I’ll be doing another one sometime this year, but haven’t decided on what the item(s) will be or the requirements. I prefer things to be earned with work & effort. Since the first giveaway was AR-15 related, the next one will probably be AK related.
On a personal gun related note; I haven’t bought any new guns since December when I picked up a scoped Mosin Nagant M44. I’ve been saving up for the AR upper for my AR-15 build that I’ve neglected heavily but with the giveaway over, it’s time to put it back on priority list.
However…I did just buy a gun for what some would call a ridiculous reason; it’s serial number. Why would I buy a gun for its serial number? Well, let’s just say it’s a popular serial number among gun owners, and I’ve actually seen other guns with the same serial number sell for much more because of it. What kind of gun is it? That’s a surprise because it won’t be in my hands until the summer.
Before anyone jumps in and explains the history of this particular numerical sequence, I’m well aware of its various contexts that indicate that it has no relation to the demonic horde, but I’d like to think that the Devil realizes one of his guns is missing…
At least 28 people were killed by knife-wielding attackers in a “violent terrorist attack” at a train station in the southwestern Chinese city of Kunming, and police shot dead five of the assailants, state media said on Sunday
