    Greg and Beth

    the political and personal musings of two
    mountaineers living in west-central Florida
     
    w00t #1 and #2 (maybe even #3) Comment
    Gregory Morris, 11/5/07 6:49:47 pm
    #1 - FiOS is now available in my neighborhood. I'm gonna have to think about it for a bit, after hearing what Robb had to deal with. Regardless, its DAMN fast, reasonably priced and installation is free right now. I also really don't like Verizon for so many reasons, but even I have a price for giving up my principals, fiber run right up to my house is it.

    #2 - WOOHOO! I got my new (used) shotgun today. After waiting the mandatory 3 days to "cool down" (i.e. having to use my SKS to go on a murderous rampage if that was my plan which it isn't), I picked it up at the local gun shot and range. While I was finished up paper work, Beth gravitated back towards the 1911 case to oggle the various even-more-expensive Kimbers (this time the CDP with night sights and a crimson-trace laser grip.) Anyway, about my new toy... It is a Mossberg 500A, 12 gauge, pump action, with a 5 round magazine. Standard stuff, well loved by the masses. It is in its factory sport-utility configuration right now, but I may buy a shorter barrel for dealing with in-home 2-legged critter attacks. I took it apart, cleaned it, lightly oiled it, and cycled some 3-inch 00 shells through it, to make sure everything is in proper working order. Sometime this week I'll take it to the range and try 'er out. Now I gotta start googling for all the "tacticool" accessories I'm not gonna buy cuz they are silly but I secretly want anyway. I'd post a picture, but my lovely wife took our only digital camera back to WV. And that leads me to...

    #3 - I'm playing bachelor for the week. Of course I'll probably spend most of my evenings cleaning or fixing stuff around the house. But with any luck I'll have an evening free to go to the range, or go fishing. This will mark the second time Beth has been up to Morgantown during an important football game... and she isn't going to this one either. Kinda silly if you ask me.

    Does Knight's allow you to shoot 00 Buck? The owner of Shoot Straight let me shoot when I bought the 500A, but the next time I went in he wasn't there and the Range Nazi's* said no - slugs only. And I can't shoot slugs with a modified choke.

    *They're not Nazi's, they're actually good guys. I'm just being hyperbolicyish.

    I believe Knights lets you shoot 00. They let you shoot machine guns... I can't imagine they'd worry about 3" 00 magnums.

    I prefer Range Nazis... they keep the place safe. I think the folks at Knights might even be tougher. But as long as you are safe, they don't bother you.

    You can't shoot slugs with a modified choke? Hmmm. I've shot "rifled" slugs with my dad's 878 Automaster, and I believe it has a modified choke. Might have been improved... but I know it wasn't cylinder. I dunno if there are some that are OK and some that are not... or if I was just being an idiot when I shot my dad's gun. Of course, they were his slugs (and it was his only shotgun), so I'm sure he did it too.

    Anyway, I wanna shoot my mossy tonight, so if Shoot Straight is gonna be picky about it, I'll head down to Knights.
