Alls Quiet On The Russian Front
Alls Quiet On The Russian Front

Yes, I've noticed the same thing.
Getting ready to go to work right-now (2046hrs).

Didn't work any overtime yesterday because all (statewide)
TDCJ facilities are on lock-down.

No prisoner movement allowed.

As a result, fewer guards are needed to maintain control.
As such, no over-time is authorized.

So, I only worked my regular shift.

Why? The news has reported that a prisoner on death row had a cell phone.
Apparently, he was calling state officials and was issuing death threats.

Two weeks prior to an election, could be embarrassing for the party in-control.

Maybe in the morning some over-time might be available.

Doing what?
Frisking and searching incoming and outgoing TDCJ personnel.

Ironic isn't it!
Security Managers supervising Security Labor to scrutinize TDCJ personnel.

well somebody managed to slip one in.
probably someone on the crew. you guys check everyone else
don't you? at least it wasn't a weapon. the federal maximum security
prison nearest here has a lockdown it seems like once or twice a week.

Last night when my wife and I returned home from a movie and a restaurant supper, there was a small but heavy package on our front porch from Champion's Choice. Inside was a brick of Federal 711b, 200 rounds of CCI Standard Velocity plus 100 rounds each of RWS Subsonic HP, SK Match, Lapua Center-X and Eley Match EPS.

I had planned to go to the range today and do some testing with my Ural-2 and maybe my scoped Vostok CM-2. Sadly, the wind was up and it blew all day. As I write this it's raining and supposed to rain most of tomorrow. But, if the wind and rain let up tomorrow, I'll head for the range.

Natasha misses comments from her sister rifle owners too. She is waiting herself for a time and place for a nice stone bench rest and sandbags and a 100 yard target.
She aims to please.....

tom c. 10-24-2008 09:21 PM

tell her her younger sister olga
misses her too. tell her olga is living with an old cm2
named boris and they have a little cm2 named anna.
i must be losing it. ah what the heck all my cars got
names. i got old red, big blue, little gray and little brownie.

tom c. 11-15-2008 10:59 AM

another lull
looks like cdnn must be sold out.
probably new cm2's from mt guns are all that's left.

STBE Harris 11-15-2008 03:27 PM

Russian Cormrades
Well if CDNN has sold out and CAI
then this forum my get a little quiet as the new owners go about
putting their new Russian rifles to work tearing the eyes out of bulls!

My friend down south has named his CM-2 Sasha,
so now my Aliya and Natalia have a newly named friend.

Lets see we have Boris, Olga, Old Anna, Natasha and others.
Do we have an Anna Kournikova??
Cabin fever so early in the year!!!!! STBE

I will soon be in the process of sending my CM-2 to a competition stock maker to have a competition bench rest stock made for it. I wanted something other than an Anschutz to shoot iron sight benchrest with. I will post a thread once I get it back and finished. Im thinking mid January :)

tom c. 11-15-2008 11:38 PM

if i had an anna kournikova you wouldn't
be hearing from me for awhile. i'd be busy shootin'.

Just Got Back from Odessa
I've been back from Odessa since 3:00PM.
There hasn't been much activity on our forum.

So I've spent sometime at:
Rimfire Community Forum
bailing out the Automakers?
GunsAmerica notice! Sent to me.
An interesting forum.
However, very time consuming, emotionally taxing and compelling.

Might be worth your while to participate.

tom c. 11-22-2008 08:27 PM

well it's still dead in here
went to walmart today place was packed.
hope it's a good sign of the economy. picked up
some 510's and cleaning kits for my nephews for
christmas. when i was a kid and got my first cleaning
kits they always had a little tube of black grease

Great Deals on Cars, Trucks, SUVs

It is a great time to buy a new car.
That is why my wife and I were in Odessa ... looking at some Lincoln's.

We have a 2007 Mercury Grand Marque that is 18 months old.
Well, my baby is no-longer in love with her Marque.
Time for a new car ... some excellent deals are available.
For us, it was the Ford employee pricing plan that was the attraction.

We tried. But, as I had anticipated ... we were up-side-down by too much.
Even still, we could have driven home in an new 2009 Lincoln MKS.
Ford was willing to re-finance us at 5.9%. Our current loan is 5.8%.
But, the payments would have been too high for common sense to consider.

If only ... I can find someone to take-over payments ... on a vehicle
with approximately 10,000 mile and installments for 3 1/2 years before the car is paid-off.

I think it might be possible to do.
My next project.
