I was going to get some gun cleaning done today. I've been meaning to do some of the more modern rifles, where you have to take them down to the basic groups.
Old bolt guns are so much easier. You don't have to strip them down to clean them very often.
I decided not to do it today, though. I'm having a very low energy Saturday, and it's also the last Saturday in the month which means I have other chores to do.
I had to pay bills this morning. I hate doing that. There may be something more boring and time consuming, but I can't think what it is right now.
I use double entry book keeping, which means doing the data entry on the billing is slow. But it keeps me from overpaying, underpaying, or forgetting to pay. I also keep a financial journal, which I then go back and check against obligations and income. It's a back up system to the computer, to make sure I don't make any ghastly mistakes.
At least I only have to do it once a month.
A surplus guns magazine came out, it's a special edition. I bought it, and got my money's worth. Basically it's a compendium of surplus firearm stories from different gun publications the publisher owns. There was some fresh material and great photography in it. When I went into town they had only two copies left.
I have a big box of Swedish Mauser practice ammo out in the shop somewhere. I bought it when I was at giveaway prices but have never fired it. This magazine had a good article on practice ammo, and I found there's a lot more of it out there than I realized.
There's also a good article on the RPK. I have an RPK made by Nornico before William the Bastard banned the import of Chinese weapons and ammo, so I enjoyed this article I have two drum magazines for my RPK but I've never tried to use them, I just use standard AK-47 mags.
Checked the mail while I was out, and got a new copy of Survivalist. I haven't had a chance to read it but it looks good. Right now I am brewing some coffee. It's warm inside, the sun is shining outside but it's really cold. Not very Spring like.
