For the slow posting the past couple of days, I’ve been pretty busy. I just finished up two SKS trigger jobs…one of which gave me fits, but ultimately worked out just fine.
I’ve got a couple more in the background simmering…meaning they’ve made initial contact and I’m waiting for them to commit and ship the housings to me.
I’ve also been trying to get my recalcitrant dinosaur of a computer to let me edit some video. I’ve got a couple people who have been patiently waiting for me to do an M1 Carbine disassembly video to go with my assembly video and I just can’t get the verdamt computer to cooperate. It keeps locking up when I try to render the video.
Well, I’m fed up. I’ve got a chunk of the needed funds saved up from trigger jobs and donations (thanks all), and the Apple store had a refurbished model of the computer I’ve been looking for at a good price, so I went ahead and ordered yesterday. I should have my new iMac sometime next week. Then, after I figure out how to use the thing and get some decent video editing software running, I can finish that video and start working on some more that I’ve had planned.
I put the part that I hadn’t saved up on a credit card. Please keep the trigger jobs and donations coming folks, I’ve got a long way to go to get this baby paid off. I appreciate all the help and I hope that those who have donated have enjoyed the CD’s and/or slick new SKS triggers.
Meanwhile, my CZ-82 is still in work…I just haven’t had time to work on it lately. Between VCDL and the Airfield Shooting Club, I’m working tables at the gun show in Virginia Beach all day on Saturday, my brother’s going to be in the area from Nebraska next weekend, My wife is having spinal surgery on the 9th of May (which means I won’t be doing the Bowling Pin shoot on the 10th), the 2A Blog Bash is the next weekend, I’ll be in Washington State for half the month of June on business………..
By the time things get settled down (if they ever do) the summer will be over and I’ll be freezing my buns off on the bike again. I was really hoping to get some good riding in this year. Oh well. I’m planning on riding to Louisville for the Blog Bash so there’s that.
