some stuff...

Got home in time to take a 1 hour nap before work, then off to my graveyard hell. MAN! Was the trip up 62 hell. I got behind every blue-haired old lady in Ohio. Took 3.5 hours to get home. Took 2.5 to get down there!

I had a good time, nice meeting everyone face to face. Definately better than sitting at home shooting all by myself.

Let's see.... memorable moments:

Geezah christening my Enfields!
Leadhead nearly sending his sling swivel into low orbit.
Custer's 3 hour AK maintenance session. (note to self: keep Custer away from my guns next time, he's got bad mojo!)
GregL's H&K P7....added to list of things I must own.
Hot AK brass down the shirt....always a treat.
Greg's boy "bumping" the lever action! :D
SangRun's "creation" AK (funky!)

Here's some pics. My head is still fuzzy from recoil & lack of sleep, so forgive if I screw a name or detail up...

The "Convoy"

Big Block, Geezah's friend Jeff, Geezah, Geezah's brother, Custer

Custer & Leadhead opening up the festivities.

Custer's pal (damn, name slipped me!) throwing lead.

Sang Run shooting his AK

"On Deck"

Custer shooting a 91/30, GregL & his son loading up, and Leadhead trying to take down a low flying surveilance aircraft.

GregL & his son (Adam, correct?) shooting.

Geezah's bro shooting the hi-cap SKS.

This sad scene repeated over and over again. Usually, this was followed by Custer saying "It's usually reliable." [dr evil]rrrriiiiiiiiiight![/dr evil]

Sheesh, you shoot lefthanded all day & to give your poor shoulder a break for ONE shot you switch shoulders in a weird hold & it is captured for all eternity on film :eek: :D .

Adam had a great time. He spent most of the evening rubbing it into his older brother who didn't finish his schoolwork & couldn't come :D .

Great time, great pictures. Thanks to all you guys. Great to see the old gang and make some new friends.

By the way, the young guy Swingset has pictured as "my pal" is my son, Mike. But, pal is pretty accurate, too.

Yeah, I sure had my gun woes that day. Bent firing pin on my son's Yugo SKS and an inexplicable failure to feed on my pre ban AK which previously has been my most reliable gun by far. Not sure what to do about the AK, either. Going to order a few firing pins for the SKS as we have 4 of them in the family and this is the second firing pin problem I have had.

Ironic that those $59 Mosins outperformed the more expensive stuff.

Your day really didn't go well Custer. I guess mine either when I broke my 1911.

I was good boy when I went home, I swabbed the bores on all my rifles right away with windex then bore cleaner followed by light oil.

This week I'm going to electro clean all off my rifles and get it over with!

Hey Custer I don't know but in the vid you were making as much noise as everybody else LOL . Now as far as the older ones working better, I saw you in the pics and you and I are close to the same age and we're older and still work fine don;t we and we are reliable as well . This board with the younger guys has away of making me fell younger at least and I don't think I could find a better or more helpful group if I advertised for them and put my own options in. How about you :hyper: :kewlpics: :lol:
I'm with you. I still work fine, just need periodic maintenance.

I like a good blend of the young guys. They keep me on my toes.

Took a vacation day yesterday and spent the whole day cleaning guns from the shoot.

I completely disassembled the 2 Mosins and really cleaned them up as it was the first time I fired them.

I then did the electro cleaning on those two Mosins. Seems to have helped. I think I'll do my other Mosin, the M48A and the K98 as I get time.

BTW: My Dad said his Mosin took an hour before the gunk stopped coming out of if.

I really did not see that much gunk. A fair amount on the rod, but not much in the ammonia when I dumped it.

Ideally, that's how it should be. The electro-cleaning is only effective when there's not much loose crap in the mix (dirt, debris). It should pull off the deposits of metals & fouling from the barrel and adhere it to the rod. I try to get my guns as clean as possible before doing the electro to them and I find it helps out greatly, especially on really fouled-up barrels.

If you've got your mix right and a fairly clean barrel, the process goes really quick before the solution neutralizes, usually only 15-20 minutes IME.

Sorry I screwed up the caption on your son....dunno what I was thinking I got him & Sheldon's friend confused or something. Like I said, when I typed those descriptions, I had been up for nearly 24 hours and still had 6 hours of work to go! Next time I do the shoot, I'm making sure I can take that night off.

It took me 6 hours to clean all my guns, but at last they're back in the safe and pretty
