Most know, I'm Robert, I can be an A hole at times and I'm sorry. Behind the crusty exterior is a big helping heart. Alot changed since my time out.

I got away from Politics, as it was making me more of an A hole. I became Pre Diabetic, but that helped me realize I need to cut sugars out, and thus lost about 40lbs. I'm sitting at 200lbs now. I looks like I gave away alot of my airguns, but I still have a few. Started to get back into airgun shooting as my Infantry body is falling apart and I pulled something in my arm.

But I would like to finish some of my airgun builds. My 2289, I had issues with the bolt not going back enough so I made a make shift lathe with my drill press and shortened it, then also had to adapt a Prod transfer port as I put a riser on, again, drill press lathe.. I think it is trying to tell me something.....

I Planned/building a new 18M range away from neighbors and such. So I don't need to worry about them walking around, and the noise. I don't need to put a backstop as there nothing behind me, once in a blue moon you might hear a ATV back there. But I still am, never can be safe enough.

Gonna use a 5gal bucket as my seat, and make a bench. As you can see it fully shaded. I haven't shot a single round yet as I want to make sure it is finished before I do.. So once I do, there be a christening video.

Not so long ago, I learned that "looking for a unicorn" might not mean what I thought it mean ... :partyman:
