Update on various things

I was sort of down last week after enduring some abuse from Claire Wolfe and friends (this is almost for certain about me too).  After talking to numerous people (not even work associates, but gun owners) I’m convinced I’m right about the turning over certain parts of the boomershoot web logs to the counter intelligence guy upstairs.  I’ve been thinking about it for days and have an outline of a post on the topic in my mind.  Way, way too many other things going to start writing on it though.  Basically I am of the opinion their world view is set and not subject to new data and situations.  In their minds WW III either doesn’t affect them or doesn’t exist.

I went to the Lewiston Pistol Club IPSC match on Sunday, I sucked big time.  I think it was the worst I have done in years.  I zeroed one stage.  Did poorly on most of the others.  The classifier (El Presidente) was the only one I did reasonably well on.  I felt really ‘spacey’.  Sort of dizzy most of the day.  Barb was coming down with something and missed work Monday.  I may have become infected too.  The dizziness continues and I have a bit of a sore throat as of late Tuesday.

I conducted some explosives tests after the match.  They were the continuation of this.  Another set of disappointments.  None could be detonated with the .22LR and only the 20 and 30 mL of fuel mix detonated with the .30 Carbine.  I read some stuff in my new pyrotechnics book that gives me another idea for a fuel to try that might result in a more sensitive mix.  It will have to wait for a week or two however.  I’m much too busy with other things right now.

Stephanie has been doing a bunch of work on the Boomershoot news releases and related stuff which is really nice to have taken care of.
