Zeros and Ones

Monday was sunny and beautiful out, so Abby and I spent some time on the range getting the red dot sight zeroed on her new NRA Ruger Mk III 22/45.

Abby takes aim with her new Ruger. I repainted the rest bench a couple of moths ago so it could stay outside at the range.

These are the baby portobello mushrooms I cooked last night on the grill.

Afterwards I drove to town to pick up foods to cook out on the Brinkmann grill: mushrooms, squash, red potatoes, onions, veggie chicken patties for me and shrimp for her.

After dinner I cleaned the pistols and rifles. The last eight months of cleaning and rearranging the garage and the workbench were originally spurred by my desire for a good, open work space that could serve as a gun bench.

This is the bolt, receiver and trigger of the semi-auto rifle I cleaned last night. Removing the threaded cap on the left side of the frame is the first step in disassembling it.

In addition to our pistols and my rifle we’d just shot, I pulled two very old rifles our of the safe. Neither get shot much, nor cleaned well, and I wanted to remedy that. One is a .22 bolt, and the other a .22lr semi auto, both of obscure brand. I got them apart and cleaned, then reassembled, something of a task because I didn’t have a manual for either, nor had I ever taken them all the way apart before.

Finally, it’s Christmas…

Our deer ornament hangs on the tree last week. I think this is one of the most beautiful decorations we own.

  1. I was presented a multitude of options from which to choose for a Christmas tree ornament this year. I went with He-Man, from Masters of the Universe. That’s how I roll.
