Just saw a KRISS Vector SBR carbine on THE EXPANSE on Netflix.

Love the series.

--Love that gun as well!

Happy Friday

Yesterday, I was very handy and replace the roof on my pergola with new lattice.

On that project I used my new tool:

   The pneumatic staple gun.

Let's be clear. This thing is a gun. It uses my big air compressor. 110psi and can drive a 2 inch double heavy staple with one trigger pull.

It makes me wonder what the muzzle velocity of the staples would be. Tying back the safety is trivial.

--Makes me wonder how soon before the UK has pneumatic control.

Happy Anniversary!

It was 10 years ago today that I started this Blog.

Posting has been thin in recent months but I might start ramping it up.

So much has happened in my life and the world in the last 10 years. I am now retired and writing sci-fi full time. I have 4 novels and a pile of anthologies published. This blog actually helped me get into the habit of writing. My kids grew up, finished college, and moved out to lives of their own.

We have had two surprise presidential winners. One because he was black and one because he was a total outsider.

The economy is great as of today. People are more pissed off about stuff than ever. Fake news is fake. Facebook is still popular even though people are finally understanding that they are the Product and not the Customer.

I have bought many guns in the last 10 years. Sold a few as well. Gone hunting. Ate venison. Target shot a lot of paper. I started a webcomic.

I lost 2 brothers in the last 10 years. The hardest part.

I had accidents, repairs to arm, knees and spine.

I also lost 116 lbs in my recent fitness effort.

--What a long strange trip it's been...

My next purchase

I finally got my hand on the new Ruger 9mm carbine.  It's the takedown  version of the system that is extra nice for this camp carbine. It also takes Glock 9mm mags and has a threaded barrel compatible with the 9mm suppressor I already own.

Rumor has it an adjustable/folding stock will be available soon.

I will probably add a fixed 4x scope to finish it off.
