I guess I missed the sign when we crossed the state line from Tennessee to Hell

I spent last weekend in West Memphis, Arkansas, volunteering at AAC's Silencer Shoot 2011. I was able to shoot a suppressed Remington ACR in full auto, and to shoot Remington's new gas piston AR upper in full auto, as well. I highly recommend the experience, if you can find a time and location when it's not quite so warm: highs starting at 99 Fahrenheit take a lot of the fun out of walking around and looking at things in the out of doors.

I also got to shoot a suppressed Glock 17. I'm pretty sure it was one of the 4th generation models, so that may have something to do with it, but I found the Glock less ergonomically awful than expected. Not half bad, in fact.

I had a blast, honestly, but I think if I go back, it may be as a paying customer and only one day (if they do a two-day thing again). And with more money. Fastest way to turn money into noise, indeed. Only, without so much noise.

That was fast.

So, I have to go pick up my package from the people at SKD Tactical from the Post Office tomorrow. They'd have delivered it today, but I wasn't home.

I sprang for the cheap shipping option, too.

[Addendum: I've heard most stuff is out of stock there at the moment. FWIW.]

I expect to shoot zombies or something Friday night, barring the unforeseeable.

Update: Or maybe TF2. See if I can't get one of the Engineer unlocks, maybe.

Woke up, fell out of bed, etc.

Did not have time to grab a cup, however.

I overslept by nearly two hours this morning, which made me a little more frantic than usual on the way out the door. Only a little, as my morning schedule allows for about an hour to an hour-and-a-half of oversleeping without serious consequences.

On the other hand, my glasses fell apart this morning, so I'm wearing my previous pair instead. Prescription's pretty close, but I'll have to arrange something this weekend to replace the primary pair.

Oh, and I'm picking up 1.25 guns afternoon. Well, 3 stripped receivers, two of which have a grip and buttstock. I'm a little early. Pics/details tonight or later this week.

Michael Bane wrote about Merwin-Hulbert revolvers about a week ago. I'm kind of intrigued. I'm not sure I'm $1200 intrigued, but who knows?
