Back already

Got back from Reno late Sunday from GBRVII still getting it together.  Things to unpack, guns to clean, pictures to download, yardwork to catch up on.
It was a good time; I got to meet more people that I had been reading for years but never met, and got to see others that I met last year.
Not Clauswitz (Keith) has a good summary of the people there; he also has a few pics in some of the later posts.  He is one of the people that I have read for years but never met; it was good to finally remedy that.
Most of my photos are people at meetings and general sit-around-and-bullshit sessions.
Saturday my wife and I drove over to Lake Tahoe (a short trip from Reno) for lunch and to get away to the mountains; had a relaxing time over there.  Hopefully we will get to go again next year.
There were a lot of door prizes given out, and some good stuff raffled off.  We had guns from Ruger and High Point, and accessories from Sig Sauer, Leupold, and others.


I'm a bit melancholy about the date yesterday.  I usually don't post anything about it, since there are others who do so much better than I do.  A couple are here that I think you may like.

The presidential campaigns are shaping up to be some of the ugliest I've seen; it seems to be that every time an ad hits the TV that it has less to do with facts and the economy, and more to do with ad hominem attacks.
I refuse to watch campaign speeches and ads; I prefer to look at the records of the candidates.  Anybody can talk a good game and make promises; I want to know how well they kept promises in the past, that's what tells me what they are likely to do.  Politicians are bullshit artists; never believe anything they say without proof and evidence of past deeds.
Just my opinion.
