Hump Day – Wednesday – Day 59

Completed an ammo column on defensive handgun ammo reliability, worked on a feature article on how to set up a long range sniper rifle, installed Adobe CS5 on my computer…It did not work…called Adobe and found out there is a conflict with some Windows 7 Themes. (Adobe provided very helpful and fast support.)

Tomorrow is a full half day of ordnance gelatin testing. 12 different loads. Some for Terminal Tuesday and some for an article on pistol caliber carbines. Then, I’m off to my hunting camp to complete the indoor outhouse. Sunday the Gunwriter Assistant has two football games and then I have three days to get caught up before my lovely bride and I leave for Gunsite for our anniversary. Don’t ask me how I pulled that one off.

Hump Day is trash day on Rocky Branch so after I haul fifteen bags of crap down to the end of the road I have been promised one of Drema’s excellent cheeseburgers. If they look as good as usual, I’ll have to send a photo to Draper over at the Feral Fork.
