    Too Sick To Shoot

    When do you know you're too sick to go to the range? Embarrassingly, it was pointed out that I was snotting on the stock of my friend's brand new AR-15. The runniest of noses dictates you stay home that day, no matter how badly you want to shoot. Just a rule of thumb.

    Too sick now to do much writing. See ya'll when I'm feeling better.

    Yug.

    It's well known by now that AR's need a good lube every now and then...it snot a good one though.

    When yer shootin like a gunny
    And your nose is kinda runny
    You might think it's funny...

    But it's not.

    Cut a tampon in half and stick it in your nose to stop the running of the snot, and keep shooting. Works for bloody noses, why not snot?

    Get well, next time use your own gun, then you can drool on it if you want.

    Ummm...no offense, but I think I'll just use a paper towel. The mental picture of you running around with a snotty string hanging our of your nose has put me off my feed for the next week. Thanks for that!
