Bidet Shoot ARR....

That was a great time!  There's too... too much to talk about in one post so I'll hit a few notes.

It's a shame so many people canceled (especially since some of the reasons were tragic), but the upside was that the group was small enough to make managing the firing line easy.

Well there's first the Birthday Boy Oddball for organizing this (for a given value of organized...)  and for doing some epic things with a 50bmg.  And the tannerite. Also toilets blow up nicely,  while bidets are very tough.

Also to wizardpc  for all his camera work.  (He got some vid of the "closing salute"). And I can't forget Roadkill either.  It's weird not being the tallest or hairiest guy at an event.  Also among other things Wenthe proved that an icecream cake can get too cold.

And of course Erin for getting me involved.  As I hardly knew Oddball before all this. And gave me a chance for some light bribery. (I had some extra ammo that she could use, always a positive for you GM).

And interestingly Freiheit  was there and has started  blogging.  Starting with a review of a familiar gun.

And mustn't forget James Cook and his father Jim for arranging and hosting the range.

Attn Illinois gunnies.

You're not out of the woods yet.

They're pushing for another extension on the Court ruling and fishing for an appeal. 

Meanwhile they're using the current extension to allow various cities to "Home Rule" their own gun bans.
(Check to see if your town is up to any shenanigans).

And they might just use the special state legislative  session for yet more mischief.

Meanwhile here's an FAQ on the carry bill.

Note how they keep kicking and screaming and drawing this process out.   Some reasonable gun control eh?

Book Review over at Erin's

Erin's hosting a review I did of Ernest Cline's Ready Player One.

Go and read.   And then go read her musings on the link between Christmas and zombie movies.

Blog Meet!

Had a good blogmeet yesterday hosted by RobertaX and got to see some friends that I haven't seen in a while.  Had good conversations ranging from European history (and the repetition of)  to the MSDS of decades old mystery chemicals you find in the back of the lab to the (im)proper use of radios and other equipment.

A good time was had by all,  Roberta's report can be read here.

Sorry for the slacking off on the blog posting,  I just completed the last bits of a move and am not settled in.   Though I should have more to report with a certain Land Between the Lakes event in a couple more weeks, plus some other bits 'o news.
