It's Tough to Find But I Sold A Spam Can...

...of 440 rounds of 7.62X54R today. I sold it at a lower price than most are offered today but still made a fair profit on the sale. Truth be told, I wish I had more of them to sell but I only have a couple of others so would not even consider selling them. Anyway, I am slowly but surely building up funds for the next Hessney Gun Auction I plan to attend later this month. This one is slated as an Early Gun & Military Auction on one of their website's pages and as An Early Gun & Military Auction on another. I think the former is correct after looking over what lots they have listed already.

This time around, I may use a different strategy than what I have used during other auctions. Instead of bidding on a large number of firearms, I am thinking of concentrating on only three or four at most. In fact, there is one I am sighting in on in particular. I have seen only their online pics of it but should get a better look at the auction preview the night before the auction. I usually freely talk or blog about which one are those of interest to me but not this time - I want that one badly enough to keep mum about it.

All the best,

Blizzard Warning - The Great Bliaed of 2017About To Hit NYC Area

The weather mavens are predicting that starting late Monday night, snow will start falling and winds will start blowing and it will all only end after 12-18 inches of the white stuff has covered: New York City, Long Island, Southern Westchester, Southern Fairfield, Southern New Haven, Middlesex, and New London counties (source). No wonder my boss asked me to be on standby for Tuesday to cover for a guy who drives about a 3 hour one way commute to the Bronx, NY everyday for work. Well, I should say every workday on which it does not snow any amount above an inch or two that sticks.

I may hate to have to tell my boss, but if we are in the middle of a blizzard come Tuesday morning, I probably will not be working either. That stands whether or not the Bronx office is open. I covered once before during a storm like that and it took me somewhere around three hours to get home.It's only about 18 miles but that usually takes me an hour to an hour and a quarter! NYC traffic sucks and you can bet your bottom dollar it sucks a whole lot more during a blizzard. What sucked even more was that they closed the office early because of the storm and thus I got less pay than usual. I really don't see why they open in the first place when it's snowing like that and see no reason for me to go in during blizzard conditions.
