Finished up Shorty's No.4 Mk.2 re-furb over the weekend:



And stumbled into another personal project for myself. 1942 Savage No.4 Mk.1* Lend-Lease rifle with intact US Property and "flaming bomb" marks and no importation marks. It was sportered and missing the mag, but repro mags will get me through until I find a Savage marked one. Have all the correct Savage marked parts coming to restore it along with new-old-stock forearm and hand guards. Butt stock was unmolested under the shellac and varnish, so I just cleaned it up with stripper and Formby's and have been rubbing a thin coat of BLO on it every day and letting it dry. Parts are ordered and will be coming in over the next week. Shouldn't take long to have it back in order and a grand total of $400 spent will net me a $700 rifle thanks to the lack of an import mark.

Good Job Tallen, 

I miss shooting. Used to do quite a bit when I was young. Shot at a decent level back then at .22 & .762 on L81 in the interservice meets at Bisley. Our squadron pretty much carved the National level trophies in half with Cardiff (sheep shaggers). Did a lot of messing about with SA80/L98 as well at .556 in between which was decent fun as well for a firearm starved youth in Glasgow.  Probably couldn't hit a cow in the arse with a banjo now. A bit strange for this to make me feel so old at 30.

Not much opportunity for legitimate shooting here in Manchester. Always heard the place had a reputation for shooting(s) but seems it's more the car to car sort.

Got diagnosed with Shingles at the old age of 31. Guess the stress brought it out.

My wife and I were in quarantine last month when she either had COVID, or an atypical pneumonia. The doctor decided it would be too dangerous to test her and likely expose her, and so we just stayed home and had groceries delivered for two weeks.

I got a good deal on a Tikka T3x CTR right before that happened, and I started a new job as an internal auditor for the biggest bank in my state - owned by the “Walmart family“. I am also supposed to be co-managing a campaign for one of my counties local Justice of the Peace elections, but social distancing added a unique challenge to that.

Our IT dept. has closed down additional remote working requests and so I’m still going to the office each day. There’s only a small handful of people working there, but it still makes me nervous with all of this going on. More than anything I’ve been horrified by my state’s (Governor) absolute refusal to acknowledge and deal with reality, or understand middle school science. Unfortunately, I suppose that’s part of life in Arkansas right now. We past our previous peak on Friday, and we’re continuing to show signs of outbreaks. He is taking the weekend off and already clearly stated that we’re not closing anything down from this point forward, kids sports and summer camps are on, and we have viral pictures from the Lake of the Ozarks which shows hundreds of people all within inches of one another.

This is fine.
