Well strap in Georgians, HB826 has been fucked. The official publisher of the Ga Codes has fucked it up, in essence they are acting like HB 826 did not happen.
They are acting like HB 60 changed parts of the law it did not, and over rides HB 826. In other words we now have to sue.
They specifically have to ignore Ga Code and case law to do so.....illegally.
As my people of Georgia would say HAMMER TIME!
Just to explain a bit, the weekends actually are my work week. I work Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and used to be Sunday. Then I go to school Monday through Wednesday. The sucky part is I work nights and go to school days. My sleep schedule is messed up.
Okay, I haven't gone cloths shopping for myself in like 4 years. Sadly a lot of my stuff is wearing out. Like my cover-shirt collection. So I got two new shirts from Magellan.
They are all synthetic which is nice because they don't hold sweat as bad as my old cotton shirts.
Also are the Fish Gear series and are much cooler, they also are button up shirts. So new I look a little more dressy then my old T-shirts that I used. Over all the last few weeks I have been wearing them constantly instead of OCing.
I am loving the pockets, not just two simple shirt pockets, but two mini pockets infront of each main pocket. Also some kind of loop set on the left pockets right side seam, I use that to hold a pen usually.
I at first got a short sleeve version, then a long sleeve version that is designed to have the sleeves rolled up and secured with a button strap.
Both are very comfy, work well on my draw, and fit much better then my older shirts.
The price was actually pretty good, 20 for the short sleeve version and 25 for the long sleeve version.
Well, here we are again.
This time I did not shave at all yesterday. So today's shave was with a full beard growth. It was just as easy, also I switched back as my wife's request to shave cream. She didn't want it to go to waste. Oh dear lord that stuff stings after a few minutes. The cream was Edge extra protection with cooling conditioners. It stings before I even start shaving.
I only do two passes right now as I am relearning how to shave. I know I could get a ridiculously close shave if I did three, but I am not wanting to risk the possible irritation. I will give it a full week for my face to get use to the new way of shaving before I do three passes.
Just for your edumication of wet shaving with a safety razor here is a video.Nick Shaves
Also good eye candy for the ladies.
Well after pulling out the Savage 110 I knocked the front iron sight loose.....which lead to me trying to get to the screw under the blade of the sight....which is held in by a set screw....which is rusted shut.....which led to me using a stripped screw bit to try and remove it....and finally trying to drill it out.
Now I have to replace the new front sight ramp.
Eh, I needed to replace the front blade anyways. It was almost impossible to see.
After just touching up yesterday with my new safety razor I am checking my face and it seems almost like the same day I shaved. The bristle is noticeably less. So today's shave will be more of a touch up then a real shave for me.
As to the soap used I am using a coffee and cream lye based soap my wife makes. It is very nice and works well for just about anything.
So, I looked around and found instead of waiting for a safety razor to be delivered I could pick up a cheap one piece style one for 13 bucks at Sally's Beauty Supply.
Guess who just came from there....
Yeah so I got a no name brand safety razor and some Derby Extra blades.
Honestly I just hit the rough spots from shaving this morning, it was smooth and very nice. I did nick myself a bit, but didn't even notice it was so minor.
All in all it was very thrilling and relaxing. I know odd combo. Still I think I will keep trying this.
It's funny I can't wait to shave tomorrow, using a safety razor has made shaving enjoyable again.
Just watching the metrics of my blog are kinda interesting. No one starts reading until about 5-6 am eastern time. Then it is a few hits here or there till around 11pm eastern. Not a lot of night owls read the blog.
Well after shaving with my knives a few days ago I couldn't stop thinking about actually trying my hand as straight razor or safety razor shaving.
So after watching almost all of Shavenation.com on youtube, I then started watching or reading anything and everything on straight or safety razor shaving. So now I think I want to actually make the plunge.
Well, I finally got time to post.
My new rifle is a Savage 110 in 30-06, is has an unknown Bushnell scope, and back up iron sights that the scope rings allow you to see. I am itching to go shooting. but all the local ranges I am finding are not rated for 30-06.
The one thing I am finding is that I may have gotten one heck to a deal, the Bushnell scope is no slouch, as in it may be worth more then what I paid for the rifle. But that is just a guess, more research is needed.
The bolt is smooth and locks up tight, mechanically she is fine.
Now for the bad,.
It has a lot of the bluing gone, as well as surface rust, and some slight pitting.
She also probably need some muzzle crown work. I don't think it's enough to make her really inaccurate, but she isn't gonna be doing sub 1 inch groups at 100 yards.
Well, first off the stock that came with my Mossberg 500 was crap. It about knocked teeth out, and I am not exaggerating. I had 2 loose teeth after firing it 4 times. For the record it was a Knoxx SpecOps NRS stock. It sucked.
I like monte carlo stocks, they just work better for me. They are more comfortable and allow me to reach all the controls more naturally. They also make using it as a club much easier for me. Still I wanted an adjustable stock thus I found the ATI Akita
Stock photo from CheaperThanDirt.com
It is adjustable, and has a fairly nice cheek rest. Also very solid feel. I haven't shot it yet but I doubt it will be as bad or worse then the Knoxx stock.
Do to this Shaving with a spoon I decided to see if my knives are really shaving sharp like I think they are. Yes they are....never ever doing that again.
The main problem is that the drag is too high, it almost rips hairs out before it will cut them. It is by far the most painful shave ever. My knives can shave me, but the razor burn is horrible. I finally gave up at under my nose and my chin and finished with a real razor. Considering I was using an AUS-6 steel knife, and a 440C steel blade. Both can do it, but oh dear lord does that sting.
No, you may not offer me a "free" "one year" subscription to your site after adding my RSS feed to it without my asking. Thus forcing me to change my RSS feed settings to avoid your site from copying the entirety of my blog posts for your site. Your site lacks what I require, namely not annoying me greatly.
Do Not Steal My Posts, then try and strong arm me into joining.
Insomnia hit so I was twiddling with the blog when I suddenly was redirected to an ad page. Um sorry I don't remember allowing that. Gonna dig around and see if I can stop it, or if its a Blogger FUBAR.
Well things have improved greatly with my Father. He finally is getting treatment, after only nearly dying in 2 hospitals care. Now we have him at home and he is improving, as well as receiving outpatient treatment for his cancer.
I am still plugging along in college and doing well. Still working on my core classes.
Work I have cut my hours so that I can you know sleep. Other then that not much has changed.
