Me? pretty much nothing. Physical therapy and VA comp and pen appointments. Injured my left foot pretty badly last week so I've been staying home from PT. Internet shopping, but not actually buying. Need a new lower but haven't heard back from the local FFL, so I haven't ordered it.

Went back to my side hustle (Heavy Equipment) this week doing street surface removals just in time for a bunch of rain next week LOL, pipe guys can have at it when I am done.  With this crappy weather mostly staying in the shop at home fixing up/painting and doing maintenance on trailers/equipment and other projects  Trying to get everything done I can inside before the weather is good and can start working outside around the house/farm.  

If anyone has any proven shooting bench plans let me know, that and a portable HD workbench and at least one deer stand are on my short list of things to get built this spring.

Pistol, but the carbines show up fairly reliably at Hart's and Matt Ross's shop in Charles City.

And I wish you hadn't told me about the Bear Creek.  That's 2 new guns I need, between that and the .45-70 Bond Arms just dropped.

Thank you.  She lasted 9 days under hospice care.  I was there when she passed.  Strong woman. Her dad,
My grandfather, was a WP grad in 42, colonel in the army which is probably why she lasted as long as she did

The sudden need for metric FAL mags was YEARS ago when "cheap" surplus was available and DSA was selling sealed cases of NIW mags for $100.

So what FAL did you buy that you need mags for?

DSA Para-FAL.

I should have looked at mag prices first but it was kind of an impulse buy.

I've got a Stg-58 and another FAL that was "tricked out" to be a Match shooter from the guy I bought it from but I've never shot either one...I know no surprise there.  I do have 3 complete FAL parts kits but haven't done anything with them since I haven't shot the others yet.  I got Steyr mags (witness holes in the back), factory mags and even some of the aluminum mags intended for the Para FAL.  Your Para FAL is something I've always wanted to have and could use one of the kits to have it done but the parts to do so are $$, so a FAL pistol would be a fun one to have on the firing line next to a liberal whenever they would try to talk.  Of course a full auto FAL off a bipod would be a lot of fun to have as well with one of the kits.

But in the meantime I've been battling having the shingles since last Wednesday and have a lot of time to think and rethink things since I haven't been able to do anything constructive around the house and being at work today is killing me with our duty vest riding on and rubbing against the affected areas.  I can't wait to get home and lay on the bed under the ceiling fan to "cool" things down.

Glad you beat the shingles but sucks it led to other issues.

Cool car. I wonder if @Inspector2211 goes to that car show?

I also wonder whats for sale in from the booger bunker.

PS: I found some FAL mags in a combination of the EE and gunbroker. Now ask me if I would have impulse bought a FAL if I had known mags were so expensive.

Impulse buy of a firearm you say...ask me about owning hundreds of mags and parts for guns I don't have, never have or will own?!  Game over...I win!  

As far as items sold from the booger bunker it has ranged from AK to ZK so far but have to learn how to post pictures to really get the ball rolling.

Been learning as i go about supplements over the past years, first thing i think of reading this is host defense mushrooms. Not cheap as it should be more so, but it could apply well to the recovery being that it has immune boosting/antiviral properties as well as other stuff with neuron/inflammation/o2 etc.
Just make sure to check interactions with current meds and ymmv.

Been slimming down and getting fit, in body, mind and possessions as i go... spent alot of the last month around home and work.

Took a much needed break from here, wonderful to see some of the same good people i remember

Went to Irishfest in Lacrosse yesterday to see the Harp Twins. Guns n Roses, Metallica, Rolling Stones and a bunch of others, played on harps. Meet and greet after the show, light in the tent sucked for pictures but they took pictures with anyone who wanted to. My daughter even got a hug from them.

I have it on good authority that something very interesting has been purged (SOLD) from the dark recesses of the rarely entered Booger Bunker.
