Range has opened by one weeks reservation only but I fractured my leg in three places. MY bag is packed and I have 100 rounds of HXP in the bag and now I can't walk so I still have not shot my rescue rifle.

The range can wait. Relax and heal in the meantime.

yea what did you do - not fixin that car i suspect - as we get older we have to take things slower , be more careful and pick our battles with more recon , also take more gun to the fight than you think you need ...better to bring stuff home than be carried out , just my 2 bits in this day of stupid stuff in the news

now, wether you like it or not..your enduring at least a 2 week quarantine.(Gaurantees you will not contract Corona)

On the other hand(or foot), think of all the projects you can finish..not to mention the attention & fawning Mrs. MJ11 will shower you with.

Hoadie,
 
"Attention and fawning"....is that some new kind of shower soap or gel?
 
 
Get healed up fast, MJ!

Wish I had some cool story but I don't. Sober middle of the night 108 pound dark brown dog sleeping in the middle of the living room floor. Woke up and went for a glass of water and Ta Da! tripped over her and down I went. Took a week and half to get X-rays and oh my gawd the missing skin and scabs. Both knees and right upper arm were a mess.

Funny side was during X-ray I drew a crowd every one wanted to see what all the metal bits in the leg and foot were. Like they had never seen a Veteran before. Look at the size of that toe, when the swelling went down it shed the whole skin cap like a lizard drops it's skin.

Oh the dog is OK, not her fault.
