Split Toe - It was bad enough to take my 8 Browning Trail Camera's but he took a handful of music CD's as well.....who in their right mind would take the "Ultimate Manilow" music CD. Now that makes me real mad!!! I am upset about that one!!

He grabbed about a dozen Music CD from the 80's & 90's and some Christmas Music....they were Barry While, Susan Boyle, Celine, The Best of Bread all of them have been replaced but the Barry Manilow really upsets me...LOL...but the New Age and Christmas music will not be replaced.....LOL

Thanks, I think there is still one box to go.! I think and tweaking all the time, moving this over here and that over there......

When we got home Wednesday after eating dinner at Shoney's there were 6 boxes neatly stacked on the front porch....

Early this morning around midnight I tried mounting a Vortex Viper 4-16X x 50mm (got it after I got the Leupold VX5 3-15 x 44mm and 30mm tube) and tried to put it on a old Custom Built with 26" Lilja Barrel, Borden Break, Jewel trigger, HS Precision Stock, built on a trued Remington Action, Talley Rings and Bases on it. This sucker should shoot very good! Tried for a few years to figure out what it like and I use the 160 to 175 and it did not like that round at all...very comfortable to shoot...so this time will try my 120, 130 and 140 grain bullets on it.....but had to ordered high Talley rings for it. So around 2 AM EST I ordered some high Talley Rings from Midway.

The reason why I sort of went away from Midway (instead of an ordered every other day, it has dropped to about one every four days or once a week.....but Midway was to add the proper amount of Sales Tax and here in TN you add about 10% to your order and for the Talley Rings for some strange reason, the final amount was within a dollar between Amazon and Midway....so I went with Midway on the order.....

Just got through turning out the lights in the gun room for today, been working in there since about 9 AM this morning....still have to donate some stuff.....but down to one full box of "stuff".....Will be back in there tomorrow.....

Playing that Manilow album nonstop has been proven to chase all of the vermin out of the house, but at the same time most humans have to leave as well . . .

This coming Sunday (June 2nd) it will be exactly 100 days since the 2019 epic rain and floods and on June 2nd will officially open the gun room for business, Bo's business!!!

Am plainning on heading to the range this Friday and start getting 6 or 7 rifles that I had to take the scopes off of just to clean them after the flood, the surface rust at the end  of the barrel that came from being in the Styrofoam case for all those days. The ones in the gun safes were ok, just cleaned them for the second time this year...they should be clean and ready for the range.....but will take about 6 rifles with me to the range...will make it a almost day of it, leave about noon and will be back around dark thirty...will stop and grab me a bit to eat from Bojangles drive through....

But I have taken lots of pictures (that I will not post) of the gun room (only Split Toe and Deer Head will see them), since the redesign of the room with its new floor, should have done this sooner, but there is a lot of new shelves with chrome wiring and plenty or wheels since the laminated floor is down, thanks to the Mrs. it was her idea to put most of the totes on pallets with wheels, this is a great idea....

I am more than ready to get back to a "normal" for me lifestyle.....

Got 4 - 7 rifle gun racks and two of the pictured gun rack....

Yari - They represent the number of shots down each barrel, I have a system that states that if there is a white golf tee in the barrel it is a clean barrel and black represents the barrel to be clean before I shoot it again, I have all sort of color tees that go from white, blues, greens, oranges, reds, purples, mediums color golf tees and then they get dark I need to clean the barrel. When I see the white tees, I will fire at least 3 fouling shot (10 minutes between shots for regular calibers and 20 minutes between magnum rounds)

I was showing the picture just to show ever body the 10 gun rack that you can get from Amazon and it come fully assembled....I have two of them and then 4 - 7 rifle each racks underneath the stairwell, had to put them somewhere......

Tomorrow is range day will do a trash run then head to the range. Will be taking my new to me 260 Savage-Shilen, the new Christensen Arms 6.5 PRC also a Cooper M52 in 280 AI will also take a Kimber 8400 Patrol rifle in 308 Win, that have some surface rust on the last 2" of barrel....and a couple of more, have not figure it out yet...still have a few that I still need to get on paper but they can wait till next week....if and that is a big if, the 6.5 PRC and the 280 AI can get on paper and groups good, then I will try them at 200 yards then in a few weeks take them to the 600 yard range and work my way up to 600 yards.....got to be good groups at 200 yards.....

funny, I figured they were on the rack so you corked them to keep critters, dirt and dust out. I guess I didn't think it through enough or realize bo always has a system. well done

I have notice over the past couple of weeks during the flood of Feb 2019, the guns that were in cases with foam-rubber in them all of the has surface rust on them, The guns that were in the safes were OK, and some of the gun cases that do contain foam-rubber were OK. Some surface rust was at the end of the barrel and others the rings had to be removed get the steel wool down and some break free and go to town on the rusted surface...Had to take some of the scopes off and with a couple of them the rings has plenty of rust on them...but once you removed the scope you have to go through all the steps in mounting the scope back onto the rifle the right way....but had to make more orange tags with the words "Bore Sighted Only" using the zip ties, and sticking them around the barrel, it getting pretty orange down there now with a least a dozen orange tags that needed to be clear with getting the rifle back sighted in.....

I know that foam-rubber and water don't mixed, just like alcohol and firearms don't mix....so just be ware not to leave your rifle in that type of case for a long period of time....but have been going through each and every firearm in the inventory and check for rusting caused by the flood.....

Yep - Dad always preached that to me as a kid, and in recent years I've seen a couple of dreadful examples of people keeping guns in cases for years - almost made me cry to find a Winchester 42 all rusted up in a case after a family member passed a few years ago.

I put them in the cases after the floods and had them available along with the guns in their safes. Had to go in and secure the guns in the safes before moving them to a storage shed....telling everybody that they were empty but they were not.....used duct tape and bungy chords and ty wraps to secure them in the safe before moving them.....and the left over rifles put them in the foam rubber cases, thought that they would only be in them for a few weeks, turned out to be months....did use them this past week with no problems when I went to the range this past Tuesday....

Did put out a trade, since the theft like Barry Manilow, I offered some Micheal Buble CD's for the Browning GTC...LOL....that would be a funny.....

All of the stolen CD have been replaced and so has the Browning GTC with (5 of the same model BTC-4P) was lucky enough get them from one supplier...

Made it finally to the range for the first time this year last Tuesday.....

so do you play barry manilow at the range to calm you nerves or to get the range to yourself?  @--0--0120 @--0--0120
