Your curmudgeon went back to work this morning, with merely a Sunday off-duty.
Nothing much happened at work today. A quiet shift is a good shift. I'll take quiet every time.
Nothing much to blog about. The economy is melting down, but gun sales are up. Go figure. I was at my favorite pawn shop this afternoon and noticed that his shelves are less stocked than they usually are. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but the counterman was processing a 4473 for a customer. An old acquaintance stopped by and after the lady had bought her pistol, the counterman, acquaintance and I discussed the various merits of the .270 Winchester caliber.
There's a Ruger Model 77 in .270 on the shelf marked at $450.00, and I was sorely tempted. There's also a Savage 110 in 270 marked at under $400.00 and my acquaintance was sorely tempted. I've never used a .270, but that Ruger seems to be priced right.
