Some Folks Walk Around In A Cloud...

...and sometimes it is of their own making. Folks like that are probably not cut out for a life of crime. Take for instance Michael K. Meadows, whom it is reported walked into a business and sprayed pepper spray at the employees - then walked into the cloud of the mist he had just created with the pepper spray. It incapacitated him so much so that he fled the scene without any loot. He was captured by the police, not too long afterwards, apparently after the driver of the getaway car dropped a dime.

HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY

Now that I have wished you all a Happy Mothers' Day, I am going to go eat breakfast. Then I am going to go out and search for a store where I can buy my wife and also my mother-in-law a mothers' day gift. I remembered, at about 0130 this morning, that I had not done so already. Oh the shame of it all....but only if I get caught.

More blogging tonight - maybe.

All the best,

Quick Inventory of 22 Rimfire Ammo

I took a quick inventory of the .22 rimfire ammo, I have around, that was easy to find. (Meaning there could be more somewhere out of sight in an ammo can in the back of the closet or wherever).

After getting it done, I figured I had best stop reading gun forum threads on availability of .22LR ammo and need to stop visiting gunbot.net. It's not that I have a gazillion rounds of .22LR, or anywhere close to that, but I think I may have enough, at least for now. I think what I have on hand of .22LR will last me a few range trips and maybe also a few hunting trips. All I'll admit to I having more that a single box of 50 rounds and less than 30 bricks worth of .22LR ammo and I am tight lipped so to speak mostly because no one needs to know how much I have on hand - especially Obama, Cuomo and or their henchmen.

I will readily admit though that I have one single 100 round box of CCI .22 Short (CB Cap). Who cares who knows that? (It was a rhetorical question, don't answer it. Believe me, I know ho might be interested to know how much ammo I have on hand.)

I also have a decent number of .22WMR (.22 Magnum) rounds. Again, enough .22WMR to last a few range trips and maybe even a few more hunting trips - more than a 50 round box and I'll admit to less than 5k rounds of it. Mind you, that could mean 51 rounds, 5 boxes of it, 10 boxes of it or all the way up to 4,999 rounds. I am not telling, again for the same reason. I will note that I found a box from a brick of .22WMR (not even hinting if there is any ammo left in it) and the price on it was $70.00. It was from a 2012 purchase. Imagine getting it for that price now - yeah right.  Nowadays it is selling for about $150.00 per brick, plus shipping, and that is the lowest price at which I could find it in an online search I did while writing this post.

Getting back to .22LR ammo, I have heard that Dick's Sporting Goods may have CCI Mini-Mags in stock. That may require a trip to their store on the way to my daughter's house tomorrow for Mother's Day festivities. Not that I plan to buy any of it but because I need to get each my wife and mother-in-law a Mother's Day Gift. I may find something for my wife there and then may just have to stop by the gun counter to see if they actually have any of the Mini-Mags. Just out of curiosity though and as I said already - not to buy any. As I said, I think I have enough at least for now.

Then again, isn't tomorrow not now, at least until then, when by then it becomes now, but right now tomorrow is not now, and by then when tomorrow becomes now, I may not have enough now by then? Yeah, now I feel better.

All the best,
