    Just bought 6 boxes of 45 acp. They were on the shelf next to the hen's teeth.

    Also ordered some AR500 IPSC targets.
    Some of the 4 July sales were almost as good as black friday sales.

    We got a tri fecta of reasons to panic buy now. I love the panic buying. I guess it's easy to love it because I did all mine over the last 2 to 20 years when there wasn't a panic.
    Didn't buy much .45 acp or .357
    But I can reload those.
    I hit the 9mm hard from palmetto state the last couple years, feeling good about that.

    I haven't had the need to purchase any lead delivery devices or associated projectiles since HRC was running against BHO in the primaries. I saw the writing on the wall way back then.

    I'm set for life unless TNW occurs. Should that happen, I'll play it by ear.

    One thing I may add, is a quality cross-bow.
    I like quiet for a lot of outings.

    There's no such thing as too many guns, or knives , apparently.

    Folks Kawasaki mule's water pump went out recently, to remove it had to first remove the centrifugal clutch/belt drive.

    And discovered the front clutch was on the verge of grenadeing itself :(
    Well my bank account took a $600. hit for new replacements.

    It's now running cool and quiet as could be my parents couldn't be happier.

    Sucks that you had to spend the money on something unexpected. But it's always nice to replace something before it actually breaks. Usually cheaper too!

    True, unfortunately that was half of the budget for redoing my motorcycle :(
    So I'll be posting a bunch of gear in the FS/FT section soon so I can purchase the rest of the parts/tools needed;)
    Here's what I purchased before the mule went down.
    IMG_20200714_083242.jpg
    LED turn signals
    Handle bars and grips
    New fork seals and dust wipers
    Fork oil
    Motor oil and filter
    Long discontinued factory passenger backrest off Flebay
    New stainless steel Voodoo 4-2 exhaust and header gaskets
    And 2 repair manuals so I can do it right.

    Are you replacing the belt as well? I'm curious about the condition of the belt and springs since the clutch was wore out.

    You can be sure of that, by the time I'm done it'll be "Harder, Faster, Louder" :oops:
    That's what she said she wanted :p
    belt was fine, whole new clutch with springs.

    3 CS Pro Model Blowguns; apparently they’re discontinued. I want a spare, and I have plans to shorten another.
    Along with the slingshots, I can shoot the blowguns in my condo.

    Seems that the multi-dart system has also gone away, so I picked up a pair of those.

    A CS Two-Piece magnum blowgun for my mother-in-law. Years ago, she had an Andean original - with curare darts - which someone stole. She mentioned this when I said I was target shooting in the condo. How could I not bring her up to date. I’ll need to work on the curare, however.

    (She’s 88, and totally psyched to have a new blowgun.)
