Re: December Greetings, Merry Christmas

Post by Claymore on December 10th 2015, 11:02 pm

A guy that I knew after the war claimed that he was a SEAL graduate, and commanded a PBR in Vietnam (I never saw his badge, but he rode rodeo bulls for fun, so I didn't challenge his story).

He was a bit wild.

He said that he would go down-river and go on a "toot", get arrested, and busted down to E-4. They weren't going to waste a combat troop by throwing him in the Brig for Drunkenness and Fighting, so they just ordered him to take his boat back upriver to the Combat Zone.

He said that he refused, because Naval Regulations stated that you had to be at least an E-5 to command a Vessel in Combat Waters.

So they would just give him back his E-5 with 0 Time in Grade and order him back upriver.

Coolest looking navy wins the war. It's a better looking and better equipped ship then the Canadian coastal patrol vessels (Kingston Class). Just a bathtub with a pop gun on the front.

Oh!

Kind-of looks like the Westwind that I was talking about, but with a V-Hull.

Put together my new shooters bench rest:



Assembly went well except for it said nothing about the black gear tray going on before the locking nuts on the rear arm. I had to dimantle and redo. Then redo again cause my AR's vertical grip was catching on the elevation turn wheel. I just had to extend it back one hole further all was good.

Judah turned 3 today, so we had a house full of friends and family tonight. Planning on going to the gun and knife show in the morning with my brother and older two boys in the morning to try to find good deals before they get gone.

I need to get something like this when I get the shooting range built. First make sure the rifle is sighted perfectly, then work on accuracy without it. Do they have them for pistols too?

Yes, they make pistol rests.

However, many of your best shots use sand bags.

Just save your worn-out jeans, cut the legs off, sew one end shut, fill it with sand, and tie off the open end with a cord.

You're going to have sand, and you have growing boys, so I know that you're going to have worn-out jeans.

And leave your sand-bags in a plastic or metal garbage can next to your shooting bench. That way, you don't have to drag them to the range every time that you shoot.

Also thinking about having a game night with some friends of mine this Sunday evening. Might be playing some chess. Sent a letter to a friend of mine asking for some good strategy, but I don't know if I'll hear back from him in time. Oh well, there will be other games in the future that I might be able to do better on.

Anyone else a chess player?

Great idea! Yes, I have plenty of old pants around my house. Of course, I may have to mend some knee holes first!

Just cut them where the worn-out knees are, turn them inside out and run a couple lines of stitches across. Now turn them right-side out. The rough edge is hidden, and you have the bottom hem of the jeans as a finished edge for filling the bags.

It's handy to have a few smaller sand-bags around, too.

I was.

My wife thought that she was a pretty good chess player (19 years old, 39 years ago).

Then, one game I drew my wife into "Fool's Mate". She kicked the Chess Board over with her feet and called me a really dirty name.

We haven't played chess, since.


(I still laugh, when I think of that game.)

Yeah, I've played that move before. It works sometimes, but you've got to have more strategy in the case the opponent doesn't fall for it. I've also played conservatively at times in the past hoping for a war of attrition that you come out on top of.

What I'd really like is to find out how to play genuinely smart chess where you neither go for the gold up front, nor hope for the best at the end. I'd like to know what moves I should make along the way to give me a better shot at victory.

Do you give out advice to people who ask nicely??

Actually it says for pistol shooting remove the rear support and use the bag.

So a bag is to be used regardless, sand or otherwise. When are you going to try it out?

Being more of a cerebral game, chess tends to stroke or bruise egos. Checkers? Ya got an old hound dog at yer feet, and the shotgun is yonder over the fireplace.

Well, if she didn't want to have her "Ego Bruised", she shouldn't have gone up against the Master!


"Fool's-Mate!"



(Yeah. I really said it.)
